Nottz Art
Where to find your art in Nottz

Whether you are the sort that likes to daub oils over a well stretched canvas, chisel into a lump of wood to find the form ‘hidden within’ or just like to spend hours moseying around art galleries, wearing something a little on the pretentious side, slung over the left shoulder, making comments like ... “it’s all about the way the blue clashes with the yellow, don’t you think ... I think they’ve hung that one upside down .... so, what exactly is art? ...” we all like to spend at least a part of our lives engaged in art and it’s appreciation.

Therefore you will need to know where to find it.
