This year’s Isle of Man Art Society Easter exhibition enjoyed another resounding success according to its lead sponsor, Moore Stephens Isle of Man.

It is the third successive year that accountancy firm Moore Stephens has supported the event.

’We’re extremely proud to support the Art Society through the year and in particular this event which reflects the importance of art to the Island and the high calibre of our local artists,’ said Moore Stephens partner Andrew Dixon.

The 2018 exhibition, held at the Onchan Village Walk precinct, was officially opened by Steve Rodan, President of Tynwald, at a private invitation-only preview evening on Tuesday, March 27.

The exhibition was then open daily to the public through to Monday, April 2.

’The quality of art displayed is always exceptional and without this exhibition, local artists wouldn’t get the chance to display their talent and skills to the island,’ said Mr Dixon.

’The turnout over the six days was tremendous. I had the chance to view the art several times and, on every visit, I was impressed by the number of people attending.

This year 91 artists exhibited more than 364 pieces, all of which had never been displayed before.

’We can’t thank Moore Stephens enough for the hard work and dedication their team again put into supporting and then promoting this year’s Easter exhibition.,’ said David Sayle, Isle of Man Art Society chairman.

’The success is evident in the record number of visitors.’

The sponsors were: Bill Mummery, Hunter Tax Consultants Ltd ISO QA Isle of Man Ltd, MPES, SmartHR, Abbey Dental 1 Dental, Beautiful Blooms Ltd, Crowe Clarke Whitehill, Döhle Yachts, James Caine Ltd, Middleton Katz Chartered Secretaries LLC, Ramsey Crookall and Co Ltd, Shoprite and The Fortress Group.
