The Sprout Secret Postcard event is coming..... Would you like to take part?

Anyone can take part, all ages and you don't need to be an artist to pick up a pen, paint, print, collage, use photography or write.... whatever you fancy!

Pick up blank postcards from Sprout asap and get them back to us by 19th May and we will include them in the exhibition which opens 13th June and runs until Saturday 24th June.

This annual event raises much needed funds for our fab little art space whilst at the same time giving visitors the chance to choose a miniature piece of artwork without knowing who the artist is until they buy it! The photo shows some of the amazing pieces we had in last year's show.

If you're not local and want us to post you some blank postcards to join in, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Thank you,

You can still take part by picking up a postcard from Sprout Arts at
74 Moyser Road, Furzedown SW16 6SQ

Emily's work is based on storytelling and visual thinking based on stories from the bible, folklore and recent residency trips in Scotland. In her work she draws from a variety of references from her surroundings, semi abstract and semi figurative in a painterly language. She is interested in capturing the sensations of these subjects, and exploring the expression and subjectivity of colour, inspired by Johannes Itten's teachings and explorations on the art of colour. Her work conjoins observation and the imagination through the interaction between conscious thought and the subconscious. 

Emily is a London based artist, who recently graduated from the The Royal Drawing School 2015 and a previously from Brighton in Fine Art Painting in 2011, where she received the Nagoya University award for 'The Highly Commended: Outstanding artistic achievement at Brighton University Degree show'. Emily has exhibited in Berlin, London and West Sussex, including at Christie's and The Hyatt Regency Hotel with the Saatchi Gallery, London, and in group and solo exhibitions at The Project Gallery in West Sussex. She also frequently partakes in residencies, previously in New York and Berlin, and recently in Italy and Scotland, granted by The Royal Drawing School, during her BA she was also granted a student exchange programme to study at Seoul National University, South Korea.

**Emily will be holding a workshop exploring the imagination,looking at stories,poems and words for inspiration. Thursday 27th July 5.30 - 7.30pm (Adults and Children Price: £3.00 donation. Materials provided!)**

Gillian Foster - I am an ex primary school teacher, now working as a private tutor in Maths and English. Art and crafts have always been hobbies since childhood but I learnt watercolour painting with Kevin Williams in my forties. That inspired me to move into mixed media work. The crochet and knitting skills I learnt from my gran proved very useful too and I started to branch out into making dolls, brooches, throws etc. I like drawing people and working with sketch books. I've attended some life classes but am mainly self taught in this. Each year I do an art day with my yr 6 leavers and the work they can produce never fails to astound me. My exhibition includes a range of paintings, collages, knitted and crocheted corsages, papier mache figures, and boats made from driftwood and material found on the beach. I often upcycle discarded 'treasures' and am excited by found objects which I can think about to use in a different way. I hope the exhibits manifest some of the fun and enthusiasm I get from my hobby.

 

Kevin Williams' work has featured in many private collections both in the UK and abroad. He has been teaching drawing and watercolour painting in Adult Education for 16 years.
"After graduating from Twickenham School of Art I worked as a freelance illustrator and Graphic Designer for large organisations which included Nestle, Evian, Young's Seafoods and Superdrug. My paintings are usually in watercolour or gouache. I paint on location in all weathers. I use a loose energetic style, splattering and an occasional use of collage combined with more considered brushwork. I have recently renewed my interest in life drawing."

Kevin has held an Open studio Event for 20 years. Five of these years were part of Merton Arts Trail.

This exhibition celebrates the landscapes genre. From the wild corners of our coast to the open riverscapes of central London, these paintings have been inspired by the world around us. Also on display are some works from Katharine’s flower series. She aims to capture the character of each flower. The challenge is to recreate something so delicate in the robust medium of oil paint.

I hope that the works evoke my love of the British landscape and in some way captures the power and beauty of our surroundings. Landscape dominates this exhibition (although not entirely) and is represented through more literal representations and by surrealist influenced work. I hope you enjoy it.

Sound, defined as the movement of energy, is expressed through a fusion and the novel interplay of vibrant colours. Bold dynamic brushstrokes are punctuated by junctures of intricate detail and delicate beauty. RHYTHMS OF LIGHT invokes a sense of energy, freedom, life and mystery. Be captivated, uplifted and inspired by this new work,  that promises to engage both your senses and emotions.
