The first Sprout ArtLoan event!

June 22, 2018

Our first Art Loan event was a great success with almost 30 works of art loaned out to members of Sprout and our corporate sponsors.

With special thanks to interior design specialist E & A Wates who allowed us to use their lovely space and window display to promote the event, which was made very special with the amazing singer performing downstairs for the Wandsworth 'Love the Lane' event on Saturday.

We had lots of new members join Sprout and take away a work of art, and our first corporate sponsors Poppy's Funerals who had a choice of the remaining artworks to take for display - please contact us if you are interested becoming a corporate sponsor too.

Sprout Members, volunteers and guests who came to the Sprout Garden Party on 12th May enjoyed a preview of a selection of the artwork which will be available at our first Community Art Loan event on 22 June 2018. 


Although the weather wasn't sunny everyone enjoyed the evening with live music from the talented Wandsworth Music Academy, wine tasting Chateau Tooting from Urban Wine, delicious nibbles and drinks.

It was great to celebrate all the work Sprout has done, especially all the hard work of Liz and Lynn, who are now stepping down from being chair and deputy chair.
