Nora Young: The Mark I Make
Exhibition // 16 – 28 July // 10.00 – 17.00

Nora Young was awarded funding for this year’s Creative Commissions by Adur and Worthing Trust. The fund allowed Nora to create an artists support group where artists could frequently get together to discuss their work, attend exhibitions together and explore mark making in each of their practices.
