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.

We will have our next Art Loan event in October - thank you!

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.

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. 

Find out how to become a member HERE, if you are an artist and wish to join this scheme find out more HERE.  We would love to hear from any companies interested in hosting an Art Loan event or becoming a sponsor and corporate member of Sprout, read more HERE.


Our Summer 2019 Art Loan was at E&A Wates, with the artwork on display in their showrooms as part of The Furzedown Festival. Our Autumn Art Loan was at The Living Room on Thrale Road and the Winter Art Loan was in Sprout Gallery in Feb 2020.  We will be interested in new venues for future events - please get in touch if you could help.

Reopening Sprout with our summer ArtLoan event

Throughout lockdown Sprout Art gallery brightened up the neighbourhood with a wide range of art displayed in the windows by popular local artists.

We decided the first opening event should be our ArtLoan in Sprout Gallery at the end of June. Members were offered the option to roll-over their loan until the Autumn but there was a really great response with new pieces added and lots of new people becoming members.
