Crowdfunder Launched for Outwoods Sculpture trail

To donate follow this link…

DONATE

ArtSpace have spent many hours developing plans and submitting funding applications to Arts Council England and Charnwood Borough Council for an Outwoods Sculpture Trail in 2022. Unfortunately we have not been successful with these core funding applications. We have, however, secured a Leicestershire County Council ‘Shire Grant’ of £5000 to run a series of creative workshops with  Mapelwell Hall School, Glebe House and Cobden Primary School to co-create three or four woodland installations for the trail. 

We are now launching a ‘justgiving’ crowdfunding page in the hope of raising some funds to offer modest commissions to a number of local artists to produce and install work for the trail and create a more substantial experience for the people of Charnwood and Leicestershire.

The proposed theme, ‘Harmony and Healing for Planet and People’, aims to promote personal and community well-being and increase awareness of environmental sustainability and draw links between the two.  

Please help us make these plans become a reality . Any donation, however small, will be very helpful and appreciated. All funds raised will be used to build a bigger and better Outwoods trail.

in the dark – our first interactive on line exhibition

Sorry this interactive exhibition has now closed. Please watch our virtual tour video archive.

ArtSpace Loughborough launch “In the Dark”, our first interactive online exhibition. It will be on-line from 21st September until 21st November.  

The exhibition “In the Dark”, was set up and did actually open at Deda (Derby Dance Centre) in Derby UK back in March but unfortunately, as with many other exhibitions and events which rely on public support, Deda and the exhibition had to, with regret, close its doors. Rather than have the work unseen, it was decided to explore the magic of modern technology and investigate the possibilities of an interactive online exhibition. 

This is a new and exciting departure for ArtSpace Loughborough. One that will hopefully encourage and allow a great many more visitors, not just from the local area but worldwide to see the work that this group of local, professional artists is producing. 

ArtSpace Loughborough are a long-established group of mainly graduate artists living in the Charnwood area who are continuing to work in many different styles and a wide range of media from traditional painting and sculpture to land art, textile fine art and ceramics. Their work is contemporary, sometimes challenging and thought-provoking but always interesting and varied. 

 The theme of “In the Dark” was a title agreed upon some time before the threat of Covid19 was apparent and before it disrupted the lives of everyone in the world. It seems ironic that most of us were actually “In the Dark” as to the effect that this time of lockdown would have on all of our lives. 

The work covers many areas. Aspects of psychological feelings of being in the dark about situations, the darkness of night and how it affects the landscape and townscape, dancers performing on darkened and artificially lit stages, the darkness at the bottom of a river bed. The range of work is diverse and individual and there should be something for everyone’s taste or imagination to dwell on.
