Heritage Lottery Project "Down to the Coast" by Professor Robin McInnes.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 21st May to Friday 27th May from 10am-4pm and is being held in the Old Shop, Ventnor Botanic Gardens.

The IWAC has been selected to participate in this project, looking at how the views of the East Wight Landscape from high ground may have changed, or indeed remained unchanged, since artists depicted the scenery in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Pictures will hang alongside artworks and photographs and contemporary photographs by the IW Photographic Society.

18 pictures have now been submitted by the following IWAC members and we thank them for participating and wish them luck in the competition. There is a £150 first prize.
