Marysia Zipser, Founder of ACT, said: “I have developed friendships with these artists over several years and have seen their art mature and evolve according to their surroundings and emotions.
“Their art mediums are exciting and culturally diverse so I wanted to bring all that talent and diversity and mix them up – like on an artist’s palette- and as a platform to showcase their work together in Nottingham. They inspired me to stage this exhibition for everyone OUT THERE to enjoy.”
Joe Ganech said: “The work of art is a stop to time, a parenthesis that from Friday evening opens in Nottingham and at which I will be truly delighted and proud to meet you.”

The OUT THERE, group exhibition featuring many talented artists, is a fantastic opportunity to showcase my Art to Nottingham and UK audience.”
