Sprout Arts is a community gallery, our aim is to support artists and encourage local people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in creative activities and appreciate original art. Which is how we came up with our Community Art Loan initiative.

The next loan will start on Thursday 18th July 2024 with a member's only Preview (get first pick) from 5:30 to 8pm, then we're open to the public on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th July. 

Please return your artworks betweenSunday 14th and Tues 16th July. We run the Art Loan twice a year - the next one will be in January 2025.

New artists are welcome to join the scheme and we urgently need supporters who can help us run this event in the future - please email

The idea of starting Sprout's Art Loans initiative was simple, people who are members of Sprout (subscription is £10 a year) are able to borrow an original work of art for six months and pay nothing, the artwork would then be available to someone else or could be bought.


The hope is that people who have never had original artwork in their homes will realise how wonderful it is and go on to become art enthusiasts and encourage their friends and neighbours too. Lending sessions take place twice a year and allow Sprout members to borrow one artwork every six months free of charge.

Visit our gallery to see what art is available to borrow and about the artists - new artists and artworks will be added before every loan event

If you are an artist and would like to join the scheme or if you would like to borrow some art for your home or as a corporate member please check out our FAQ pages and get in touch.
