It is very important for cultural enrichment of communities that there are opportunities provided to artists that may not fit into a traditional, academic or commercial gallery context. That we can provide such an opportunity in a national exhibition that celebrates the diverse talents of this group of artists whose work is often thought of as ‘naive’ or a little bit edgy is a source of great pride for Arts Council Nelson as well as the for the artists themselves.
