We were delighted to be able to have our Art Loan event as soon as Lockdown rules allowed us to open in safety.
We were at The Living Room on Thrale Road on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th April and it was great to see familiar faces again as well as lots of new people delighted to join the scheme. There were also several new artists adding their artwork.
There were over 70 artworks available, most were new - replacing ones that had been on loan over the long lockdown period since the last event in June 2020, and there were also several new artists joining the initiative.
We have a new corporate member, Taştê Kurdish Café, who will be displaying a colourful choice of artwork in their café in Tooting at 91 Mitcham Road. Run by sisters Yeter, Suna, Mary, Sonay and their cousin (& chef!) Haydar, they’re bringing homemade, healthy Kurdish food to Tooting, including sharing breakfasts and lunches. Taştê means breakfast in Kurdish language.
