ArtistWalk 2020 

Sprout Community Art Loans has also joined this London wide exhibition at the Living Room 19 Moyser Road where you will be able to view the artworks available to loan as part of our next Artloan event in January.  To find out more visit www.sproutartloans.com 

Artists and creatives around London are displaying work in their windows to help raise awareness of the art community at a time when so many exhibitions, fairs, open studios and other opportunities have been cancelled due to Covid. There are several other Furzedown artists on the map to discover as well as Lucinda Denning's exhibition in Sprout's windows. Find other artists in your area by visiting www.ArtistsWalk.org and follow @artistswalk

Artist member Lucinda Denning has certainly put the WOW factor into our windows for her 2nd lockdown exhibition - we had to close our door in April when she last exhibited and now we are closed again sadly.    So many paintings to see you might want to grab a coffee at @cutthemustardcafe  before you browse through the glass … it might take a while to take them all in.  All are available for purchase. 

At the beginning of lockdown Lucinda posted a ‘picture a day’ to her instagram account @lucindadenningpaintings The pictures featured here show their relevant lockdown day number and are available for sale. Those costing below £200 are featured in the Artist Support Pledge scheme on instagram.

BIOGRAPHY

I studied painting at Farnham College of Art and ten years later took an MA at Chelsea College of Art, London. My work encompasses paintings both oils on canvas and gouaches on paper,  Some paintings will be of individual figures, some of groups of figures and others are composed of more traditional landscapes.

Colour is a perennial theme in my work, I enjoy playing with the juxtaposition of certain colours, the patterns I create with colour, and the emotional response we have to each colour and hue. I like to incorporate elements of fabrics and costumes both from around the world and from history.

Having grown up in the Wiltshire countryside, natural forms are also a recurring motif.
In tandem with my interest in colour and pattern, people fascinate me and I endeavour to convey a story by using looks and glances between members of a group.

I am as happy painting portraits from life as I am creating figures from my imagination.
Meanwhile the landscapes show another side of my work where light and weather provide the subtleties of feeling within a painting.have been exhibiting for many years and my work is in private collections worldwide.

Some of my largest work is hanging in St Georges Hospital, Tooting (originally Commissioned by the Bolingbroke Hospital Wandsworth). I work in my garden studio (open this October for Wandsworth Artists Open House). I run Art Classes for Adults and Children based in the Furzedown Project ( a local centre for older people),where I also volunteers at the Friday Morning Art Group.
On BBCTV , My paintings feature in all CBBC series of 'The secret life of Boys' enhancing the walls of the farmhouse where the featured family live.

It's a Wrap

Sprout Christmas Market 2020

7th to 22nd December 2020

 

Its a wrap

We were on a roll and then tier 4 stopped us in our tracks!

Sadly we have had to close the Christmas Market a few days early, having extended trading this evening to give a bit of extra time for shoppers. 

A huge thank you to everyone who supported Sprout and our amazing artists, designers and makers by shopping locally with small independent traders. You have made a very difficult year, end on a far better note with all those having taken part in our market exceeding expectations so when you hear that shopping local makes a difference, please believe that it genuinely does.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and may 2021 bring more happiness and less stress than 2020!

Secret Postcard 2020

    @ Sprout Arts       

Tuesday 20th to Saturday 31st October 2020

Opening Hours: 11am – 5pm 

SP2020 Sprout 

Secret Postcard opens this Tuesday 20th at 11am. This fun, annual event raises much needed funds for Sprout. We are a community, not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. Money raised helps us pay the rent, bills and maintain the building to keep it open for the local community and beyond.

A huge thank you to our members, local artists and residents who donated all these amazing mini works of art.

The ‘Secret’ part of the exhibition is that you don’t know who the artist is until after you’ve bought your chosen postcard(s) - you buy what you like for £5 each. Mini art at a mini price. 

To make it fair we limit to a max of 5 per person per visit.
