Online exhibition for Rayleigh Windmill artists

Wednesday saw the launch of a series of online exhibitions for artists who were scheduled to attend the Rayleigh Windmill this year.

Whilst the Windmill is currently closed to the public, Rochford District Council is showcasing various local artists’ creativity and talent by hosting a virtual exhibition across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

They will be published each Wednesday as part of #WindmillWednesdayRDC and each artist will receive a few weeks to showcase their themes and work.

The first artist to showcase his work is local photographer Mike Fogg.

Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community, Cllr Mike Webb, said: “We know many residents love visiting Rayleigh windmill and the exhibitions. Having the exhibition online means that despite everything that is happening at the moment you don’t have to miss out and can experience the showcases from the comfort and safety of your own home!”
