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 Art Loan event will be in January at Sprout Arts on Moyser Road
We have joined The Artists Walk initiative with a window exhibition at The Living Room Place on Thrale Road - which runs from 14 November to 14 December.
Artists and creatives around London are displaying work in their windows to help raise awareness of the art community at a time when so many exhibitions, fairs, open studios and other opportunities have been cancelled due to Covid. There are several other Furzedown artists on the map to discover as well as Lucinda Denning's exhibition in Sprout's windows. Find other artists in your area by visiting www.ArtistsWalk.org and follow @artistswalk
In the meantime, to keep the loan scheme alive and kicking, we would like you to send us a photograph of yourselves with the art work which we can use on social media. Please send any photographs to
If you have loaned an artwork you will be contacted about when to return it, please check to see if you need to renew your membership; by checking your emails from us, to see when you joined and/or if you have received a reminder. Membership can be renewed using the following link www.sproutarts.com/index.php/join-us
Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you again soon!
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 more 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.
