Nature In Art Exhibition
Art for all recently exhibited in the education centre at nature in art, Twigworth, Gloucester. The exhibition was a great success, with so many valuable conversations about how art is beneficial tool when aiming to improve wellbeing. All members of Art For All took part, experiencing every aspect of putting on an exhibition.
We are grateful to Simon for allowing us to exhibit, and all the wonderful staff at Nature In Art. It’s a very special place.
To see some of the exhibited work, look in our gallery web page.
Art For All has been awarded a grant from Cheltenham Borough Council to produce a calendar, depicting local seasonal images, using printmaking processes to create the images. Therefore we are running a new printmaking course from April-October, there are a few places left, contact us to enquire about joining.
Jubilee Project - Cheltenham Borough Council
This piece of work was created to commemorate the Queens Silver Jubilee with a grant from Cheltenham borough council. This work depicts the wildlife and landscape of the twinned Queen Elizabeth Park in Uganda.
Members researched and sketched the images, then transferred them onto three canvases and painted in acrylic. This work has been on display at Nature in Art as part of our spring exhibition, and will be on permanent display at Gas Green community centre. Helen drew an image depicting the animals and this has been made into a greeting card, which sold very well at Nature In Art, and will continue to be sold to generate funds for Art For All.
Watch this space!
