Sprout Art’s 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.
Our next loan will be open on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th August, 11am to 6pm - with a special member's preview event on Thursday 25th from 6 to 8pm and we'll have lots of new works from many different artists!
If you have borrowed an artwork you should have been contacted. If you would be interested in buying it, please let us know and we will forward you the online payment details. If you prefer to exchange the work for a new piece these are the dates you need to return the work to the Sprout Gallery:
Sunday 21st August 11 – 2pm
Monday 22nd August 2 – 6pm
Please make every effort to drop your art work at these times; or let us know if this isn’t possible so we can make alternative arrangements.
We'd love to see a photograph of yourselves with your art loan, please tag us on on social media: @sproutarts on Twitter and facebook, @sprout_arts_london on Instagram. If you're interested in being part of the next event, membership can be taken out or renewed in advance by using the following link www.sproutarts.com/index.php/join-us
We'd love to hear from supporters who can help us run this event in the future - please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea of starting SproutArtLoans.com initiative is simple, people who are members of Sprout will be able to borrow an original work of art for four 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 will take place three times a year at various local venues and will allow Sprout members to borrow one artwork every four 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
