About The Local Art Scene
The Local Art Scene is a family-run, human-edited website. We operate the business as a social enterprise aimed at supporting both local professional and amateur artists of all mediums from acrylic, watercolour and oil painters to sculpture, woodwork and jewellery makers.
The Local Art Scene was created in response to the need for artists to be able to represent themselves, their work and events both nationally, and in their own immediate location. The website is designed to clearly direct the visitor to local artists, art galleries, suppliers, exhibitions and events in towns and cities across the UK.
The Local Art Scene is a great way to reach out to art buyers, galleries and customers in your local area.
