Chester Visual Arts founded

Chester Visual Arts is a new community interest company established to address the lack of visual arts provision in the city of Chester. The board of directors has expertise from the university, business, property development, the Cathedral, Grosvenor and arts funding.

The Pop Art in Print exhibition is the first in a series of visual arts interventions into underused buildings in the city. The aim is to contribute to the renewed cultural vibrancy brought about by the opening of Storyhouse and the Cathedral’s visual arts programme.

Our immediate goal is to attract the audience for high quality visual arts and build towards the establishment of permanent exhibition space that will present ambitious work from local national and international Artists.
