Artists join CVAN South East Steering Group
28th Feb 2020
We are excited to welcome Sonia Boué and Lindsay Seers to our Steering Group, following an open call earlier in the year. Oxford-based Sonia Boué and Lindsay Seers, who is based in Kent, will be the artist members of our network’s principal decision-making group for a two-year term, helping to shape our programme for the visual arts in the region. The two artists succeed Brighton-based artist Joseph Young, who will be stepping down from the group.
In addition to an active studio practice, Sonia Boué devotes much of her time to supporting and collaborating with other artists, including as a board member of a-n and as a support artist with the Shadowlight Artists group in Oxford.
