Moore Stephens Isle of Man is proud to sponsor the Isle of Man Art Society and be associated with the Society’s annual Easter Exhibition.

This year’s exhibition at the Onchan Village Walk Precinct will be opened officially by the President of Tynwald, The Honourable Stephen Charles Rodan, at a private preview evening on Tuesday 11 April. The exhibition will then open for public visiting daily from Wednesday 12 to Monday 17 April from 10am to 5pm (Thursday 13 April open from 10am to 8pm).

“We’re thrilled to be supporting the Isle of Man Art Society’s Easter Exhibition again this year,” commented Moore Stephens partner and art enthusiast Clive Dixon. “The Isle of Man has an amazing number of very talented artists and as a great supporter, I look forward to seeing what local artists have created for us this year.”

Practicing what he preaches, Clive has translated his love of art into his profession by restoring the Moore Stephens Douglas offices on Athol Street and installing a diverse collection of artwork including paintings and sculptures, all by local artists.

“We are grateful and excited to have the support of Moore Stephen again this year. Their genuine enthusiasm and dedication to the local art scene makes their sponsorship a perfect fit,” said David Sayle, IOM Art Society Chairman.

The Isle of Man Art Society has been established for over 60 years and while promoting established local artists, they encourage any individual to get involved in the world of art.
