Colony was formed in October 2017 following an exhibition at Sun Pier House gallery called “The Magnificent Seven”. The exhibition was a great success and Simon Mills set about forming Colony which included six of the artists who were part of the “The Magnificent Seven” show together with other like minded artists.
Simon says “originally I formed it as a support group for Medway artists as making art is often a solitary pursuit and being part of a group can counteract feelings of isolation. It has grown since then and apart from showing our work together, we intend to publish books that will celebrate the artistic culture of our area”. Colony has already published two books of poetry by Bill Lewis.
Colony members work in a variety of mediums, Painting, Photography, Collage and Mixed Media but they share a passion for art and culture and believe in producing work to the highest standards.
