This month we’ll be hearing pitches from a range of local businesses and learning more about some forthcoming arts events and opportunities happening in Wolverhampton. This includes the Paint the Day weekend organised by Newhampton Arts Centre, inviting artists to capture the spirit of the Whitmore Reans area, as well as a chance to exhibit and sell their work. Printmaker Linda Nevill will be talking about her recent projects, and the team from Wolverhampton’s Mental Spaces will be talking about the Asylum Art Gallery and a range of opportunities for artists. Sharon Samuel will be talking about her newly launched interiors business, The Sewing Lounge and artist Jon Metcalfe will be talking about his paintings of local landscapes.
