Local fine arts photographer, Margherita Introna hosted her much-anticipated Deep South Community Art Exhibition from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 December.

The exhibition showcased works of 29 local artists and more than 100 works; from paintings, to photography, drawings, sculpture, ceramics and more.

The first of its kind exhibition was held at the Scarborough Community Centre.

The motivation for the show, she explained, was three-fold. “I had a number of personal reasons for wanting to host a community group exhibition. One of the main reasons was that I have been living in my little village since 2015, and other than my direct neighbours (who I had known since before I moved here), I knew absolutely nobody in the village.”

In addition to providing a platform for locals to meet, she also aimed to raise money for Tears Animal Rescue and to support and expose local artists.
