AVA is a warm, inclusive and supportive group of professional artists that meet, collaborate and exhibit together with the aim of encouraging and empowering the wider community in the arts. This is achieved through workshops, art fairs, participating performances and installations in and around the borough of Ashford.
As an assemblage of contemporary artists and makers since 1998, the ethos is that all of our work is executed to a high standard and attention is given at every stage of the process. There is a diverse range of academic applications, from traditional skills to the conceptual. Our artists continually explore and develop their practices across the disciplines of painting, printmaking, photography, video, graphics, installation, performance, sculpture, ceramics, glass, woodturning, metalwork, jewellery, textiles and other media.
We invite you to look at our Member's Page and please do contact us if we can be of assistance with any community or art project you may have in mind.
