The Eden Valley Artsistic Network was born, partly due to the demand of local artists wishing to come together to exhibit their work, but also local musicians, poets and those interested in the performing arts, looking to become part of a wider network for the arts. The very first EVAN art exhibition was held in the New Squares, Penrith in October 2016.
New Squares Exhibition October 2016, with music performed by The Misdemeanours.
