A Virtual Visit to Linda Smith at Venue 56

Posted by Nicola Hancock on 6th May, 2020

Whilst we are not able to visit in person, here is a virtual visit to Linda Smith at Venue 56.

During a beautiful sunny beginning of May, on a typical Art Trail day, she has taken some photos and a video of what we are missing…and what we can look forward to next year!

    I decided to make something memorable which would capture this moment in time for me – a tiled wall, still a work in progress, which I have named The story so far…
