Royal Victoria Place Art

Shoppers in Royal Victoria Place may have noticed some artistic additions to the décor this summer.

The centre hopes its ‘White wall community art’ project will help display the ‘best of local talent’ to its 10.5 million customers every year.

The initiative started in July, with paintings by Julia Stockwell-Hamid hung on level two of the centre near BHS.

Centre manager Nicky Blanchard said: “We believe we can act as a great ambassador for the arts.

“Our campaign is a new initiative aimed at showcasing the best of local talent and we are calling for more artists to make contact so they can be considered for the next wave of activity.

Two more artists, Chris Burke and Liz Pangrazi, are now exhibiting on the lift lobby wall next to Burrells Jewellers on level two.

Any artists interested in participating should email Nicky Blanchard on nicky.blanchard@cbrems.com
