Karl’s art saves the day in Axminster

Axminster Arts found themselves in a ‘sticky position’ last week when the walls of the Arts Café were left bare.
Luckily, popular Axminster musician and artist Karl Taylor came to their rescue by mounting an exhibition of his works, with less than 24 hours’ notice.
And on the second day of his exhibition, to everyone’s delight, one of his works was sold, providing valuable commission to Axminster Arts, a not-for-profit company, which will be reinvesting its fee in supporting visual and performing artists in Axminster and the surrounding area.
Spokesperson Jenny Fells said: “To my knowledge, in all of the 17 years that Axminster Arts has been in business, a picture of this value has never been sold before and we are overjoyed for both Karl Taylor and for our organisation!”
The cost of holding an exhibition at the Arts Café, in Church Street, is £15 and the commission on sales is 10 per cent. To book the space, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
