Put yourself in the picture for Art by Yate project
ARTISTS from Yate are wanted to get creative for a new public exhibition.
The organisers of Art by Yate want to find people of all ages to take part in the colourful and imaginative project which will culminate in a display next year.
The brainchild of Spanish-born artist Juan Nuevo, who now lives locally, Art by Yate is open to experienced artists, children anybody who wants to have a go.
Mr Nuevo said: “Collectively, the canvases can be seen as an exploration of modern culture and life in Yate, Chipping Sodbury and the surrounding areas.
“The vision is to create an exhibition of 8×8 inch canvases each created by a local artist, child, mother, father, or local residents anyone can take part.”
The project will also benefit charities as the canvases will be sold and all proceeds will go to the Chipping Sodbury Lions Club to distribute to its chosen causes.
It is hoped an empty shop unit in Yate Shopping Centre can be used to house the exhibition, which will open to the public in May.
“Art by Yate is an amazing idea and fantastic opportunity to support local charities,” said Mr Nuevo. “You could get a painting from some well-respected local artist someone you know or a school child and in the process help some great people.
“The result will be a fun, colourful and enlightening exhibition which will be open to the public sometime in May 2014.”
Entries are welcome up until April next year but organisers would like some early submissions. Send an email to email@example.com for a participants’ pack. Photographers can also take part but their entries must also be 8x8 inches.
