The collective, known as Project 15, aim to bring contemporary art to everyone with free shows.

Talented group members Anna Fairchild, Nigel Markham, Martin Rigg, Ozturk 1962 and Jenny Souter will be showcasing their work at 16/17 Hermitage Road from Monday until June 14.

Jenny told the Comet: “As individual artists we exhibit in many places, but endeavour to show our work together as a group under Project 15 in Hitchin, whenever the opportunity arises.

“In the past we have also provided workshops. Fortunately we have been able to do this for the last five years, and are sponsored by the Arts Council.”
