Who is Art Friend?
A story from the founder Shona Bland:
“I was helping an artist with an exhibition a few years back (Semi Skimmed Gallery) and a friend had invited a friend, He didn’t know this type of thing existed, which blew my mind, I just took it all for granted. He was alien to this world as he didn’t have an ‘Art Friend’ to invite him to Private Views and exhibitions etc, and that is where ART FRIEND was born!"
"I want to be that art friend to people who don’t have one and show people that art is for everyone! For many years I was trying to get a job in the art world and constantly being rejected so I decided to do it myself. You don’t need an art history degree, you just need a bit of passion, a can do attitude, a goal and of course some friends.”
