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.
Our next Art Loan is planned to be in late May or June 2020. Because of the current emergency we can not make plans but will keep you updated.
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. Thanks!
The idea of starting an Art Loan 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.

Our Summer Art Loan was at E&A Wates in June, with the artwork on display at Wates all month as part of The Furzedown Festival - and it was a great success, there were over 60 artworks available, many of them brand new and lots of new people coming to join the scheme! Our Autumn Art Loan will be at The Living Room on Thrale Road and we will be interested in new venues for future events - please get in touch if you could help.
