The Bay Art Gallery is a not-for-profit organisation offering gallery space showcasing emerging artists/graduates/students living within the south east. The gallery was set up approximately 7 years ago with a view to promoting visual arts within the community and is run by the CT6 Contemporary Arts Group. The building is very centrally placed – 47a William Street, Herne Bay (opposite the main car park in William Street).
The group acts as a friendly and informative forum for those interested in English ceramics from 18th century porcelain to modern pottery. Regular monthly meetings are organised with talks by international experts.
A membership society formed as a registered charity to celebrate Canterbury's history. Its first successful project has been the statues of King Ethelbert and Queen Bertha unveiled in 2006.
The group organises affordable weekly Life Drawing sessions in Canterbury and promotes the work of its members through regular exhibitions.
Members meet weekly on Wednesdays, between September and May, to view each others work, discuss all aspects of photography and hold workshops to enlighten and encourage members on taking pictures and post manipulation and enhancement of the images using Photoshop.
