'To some on Sark, and to a few further afield, the Sark Art Group was a group of keen young artists of the 1930's who lived for periods of time on the small Channel Island of Sark. To others, the Sark Art Group was a group of sandal-wearing early hippies, whose main claim to fame was wandering about the island naked, shocking the Sarkees and building a strange-shaped gallery that held wild parties and nearly fell down, even before its grand opening ceremony [...] This book describes where art created b the Sark Art Group fits into art made on Sark over the years; why an art group was formed; who the members and exhibitors were, as well as descriptions of their fascinating web of connections; and what happened next' -- Cover.
