adurArtcollective was formed in July 2010 by a group of artists in Shoreham-by-Sea and surrounding areas in West Sussex, who were keen to ensure the continuation of the annual Adur Art Trail as part of Adur Festival in June.
The membership consists of approximately 100 artists working in a variety of mediums including painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, sculpture, jewellery, fashion and textile design and stained glass.
A group of around thirty professional and semi-professional artists established more than 70 years ago, as its name suggest, in an attic in Ditchling. Founded by a talented artist, Margaret Milnes and continued by her daughters, Jennifer Milnes Mathur and Ann Raby, (current member),it was a fundamental part of the village artistic heritage. Membership has been widened to include artists from across East and West Sussex and includes 3D artists. They hold two prestigious exhibitions of members’ work per year in Spring and Autumn.
