Moore Stephens announces great success of Isle of Man Art Society’s Easter Exhibition

DOUGLAS, Isle of Man – Moore Stephens Isle of Man was proud to sponsor this year’s Isle of Man Art Society Easter Exhibition and is pleased to announce that the event was a resounding success for the Art Society, the exhibiting artists and all those in the Island with an interest in the arts, while also raising valuable funding in the raffle.   
 
The 2017 exhibition at the Onchan Village Walk Precinct was officially opened by The Honourable Steve Rodan, MLC, President of Tynwald, at a private preview evening on Tuesday, 11 April. The exhibition was then open to the public through to Monday 17 April and this year recorded a record number of visitors.
 
“I visited the exhibition several times, as the standard of art this year was truly exceptional – as was the number of people who took time out to visit,” commented Moore Stephens partner and art enthusiast, Clive Dixon. “It’s something we were delighted to be a part of. The record turnout demonstrates how important this event and the Art Society is, plus it gave the Island’s artists a chance to showcase their talent”.
 
The Moore Stephens offices on Athol Street are decorated exclusively with Manx art with a collection of more than 100 works.
 
“We cannot thank Moore Stephens enough for the hard work and energy they put into supporting and promoting this year’s exhibition.  The evidence is not only in the record number of visitors who dropped by,” said David Sayle, IOM Art Society Chairman. “This year saw 120 pieces sold which together with a record number of raffle tickets sold, is quite an achievement.”
