The Mayor Meets the Creative Peninsula Makers

In a show of support to Creative Peninsula artists and makers, The Mayor of Ards and North Down Councillor Trevor Cummings recently paid a visit to some local artists’ studios. His first stop was Boom Studios, a thriving social enterprise run by Marianne Kennerley on Main Street in Bangor where he received a tour of the premises and met some of the artists who are based there. The Mayor then visited the studio of sculptor Ned Jackson Smyth, located just outside Greyabbey. Here, The Mayor spent time learning about Ned’s techniques and inspirations.
