Sparksartists was formed in 2001 to “combat isolation of visual artists in the region; promote, maintain, and improve public awareness of the arts.” They have in common a commitment to working as individual visual artists but also have a desire to collaborate and share ideas and experiences in a variety of areas of community arts”. The group organises ‘Art Café’ a monthly discussion arts sharing group held at Rumseys café for anyone who feels like turning up. Sparksartists enjoy the more playful aspects of their work  as professional artists when they share projects.  To support TAL and The Campaign for Drawing’s international ‘Big Draw’ these of PLAY this year, they are showing a selection of playful works in various media.
