Christopher Bone is an artist of many years experience, who also teaches art in adult education at the Cube in Folkestone. in 2002 he won first prize for the big draw event “Reflections”, having the award presented to him at the National Gallery in London. Of the future Mr. Bone had to say “Having lived in Folkestone for many years I am aware of the importance of the Grand not only as a fine piece of architecture but also as a venue for art and social events. I am therefore pleased to be able to work with the Grand to present the work of new and established artists from Shepway”. Mr. Bone has exhibited the Mall Galleries, London and St. Albans Cathedral. he has recently established the independent Muirhead Studio in Folkestone.

Roberta Harrold is a photographer and designer whose work explores the hidden beauty of the Shepway area. She grew up on the Romney Marsh before studying graphic design and photography at the Medway College of Design. She worked in the print industry for many years but currently works with vulnerable, homeless adults using her creative skills to help them achieve their goals. She says photography allows her to discover the life around her, often in unlikely places, and to create lasting images to record it. Her photographs have been regularly exhibited in the Shepway area and further afield and hopefully inspire others to find beauty where it is least expected.
