A recent initiative to display artwork here at the btc has achieved its first success when Sophie Searle, Finance and Operations Manager for Exclusive Care, snapped up a picture by Stevenage artist, Jennifer Foulds, this week.
The exhibition is a joint collaboration between the btc and Herts Visual Arts, a volunteer-run organisation which promotes awareness of Hertfordshire artists. The btc has provided four floors of wall space for ten Hertfordshire artists, each showing their own original work. The range of work includes photography, oils, watercolour, acrylics, glasswork and textiles.
Commenting on this joint collaboration, Jo Kiely – Centre Manager at the btc, said:
“We’ve had the pleasure of hosting this wonderful artwork here created by local artists and it’s great to be able to be a part of this. We’ve had many positive comments from the businesses based here and long may this collaboration continue.”
“Here at the btc we’re all about encouraging entrepreneurship and creativity. We provide free start-up business advice, training workshops and co-working space to those starting a new business venture – and this includes artists and other creatives too!”
