An award-winning Italian restaurant located in Southsea is now famous not just for their food, but also for their art. Soprano’s is providing local artists with an opportunity to show and sell their work without any commission. It has displayed over 40 artists so far.
Each show usually features two artists and lasts six to eight weeks. The artwork is available for sale, and because the restaurant does not take any commission, the prices are very affordable. An original oil painting can cost you no more than a price of a good dinner.
Tommy Peters, the director of Soprano’s, says: “It started when we had a little re-fit and after removing a few mirrors and old pictures we realised we were left with a huge empty white wall. A few of my friends and some of our customers were aspiring artists so we decided to give them the chance to display and maybe sell some work, while at the same time brightening up our wall and restaurant”.
Any artist / photographers interested in displaying their work need to contact Tommy either in the restaurant 02392 811 139 or they can email email@example.com
