The Armed Forces Art Society regional exhibition for 2017 “Articles of War”, opens here at The Lighthouse in November.
Members of their 92-year- old society who are practising professional and amateur artists are reflecting on the theme “Articles of War”.
Serving personnel, veterans and spouses, have come together to produce a compelling and sometimes challenging show, one which encompasses unique personal experiences and perspectives that underlie our British Armed Forces.
They are joined by veterans from Combat Stress who have used art as a therapy to help them come to terms with their experiences.
The Exhibition provides a rich insight into a topic that artists for centuries have strived to explore, but with a unique insight at its core.
