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.
2020 Winter ArtLoan Event
Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th Feb 2020
Our first Art-Loan of 2020 will be at Sprout Art, 74 Moyser Road SW16 6SQ. We will be exhibiting all the work available to loan between Tuesday 4th Feb to Saturday 8th.
Anyone can come in and see the work available, then join the scheme, new members can take home their chosen work of art on Saturday 8th. Some of the work, which has been with the scheme over a year, will be available to sell during the week. There will also be a special exhibition of sculptures by the artist Harry Christophides, read more HERE
MEMBER'S PRIVATE VIEW
Tuesday 4th Feb 5pm to 8pm
Current members will get first choice of the work at the Private View. There will be refreshments, a chance to meet many of the artists and artwork can be chosen and taken on the night..
Bring a friend who is interested and they can become a member on the night and take part.
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.
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 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.
