19 September – 31 October
Yeovil Art Space
In September, Yeovil Creatives Members will be showing at Yeovil Art Space, a new art space located at Quedam Shopping Centre. ‘Apart Together’ is created by Yeovil Creatives members. It resulted of a collaborative art project which started at the beginning of lockdown in response to the theme Solidarity and Kindness.
‘Apart Together’ calls for Yeovil Creatives members to submit new work to be within the postal size of 45cm x 35cm x 16cm with each member involved inviting another UK based artist to take part. More than 30 artworks will be displayed in the exhibition.
“We are living in a strange and precarious time… As a group of artists and creative people, it is important that we carry on using these skills during this difficult time by sharing our creativity”
As a growing and diverse network of creative people based in and around Yeovil, the exhibition will be a fascinating showcase of a collective action in the time of crisis. It is welcomed in a time when working together has been more challenging but also increasingly important. It will be a great opportunity to see art that connects us socially and emotionally, encouraging dialogues around the unprecedented event of recent months.
With a growing emphasis on the online presence during this time, work from ‘Apart Together’ will be shared on the Instagram account @yeovilcreatives #yeovilaparttogether and will be shown at this page.
Exhibition is open to the public at Yeovil Art Space (Unit 29 Vicarage Walk, Quedam Shopping Centre, Yeovil BA20 1EX) will be held in compliance with social distancing measures.
MON 10 – 2 / WED, FRI & SAT 10 – 4 / SUN 10-12 (Until 4 October)
WED, FRI & SAT 10 – 4 (Until 31 October)
TUR & THUR Closed
Alongside the exhibition, there will be a display of artwork by artist Jess Egan, a Yeovil Creatives member who received Creative Pathways bursaries from Somerset Art Works, as part of Somerset Open Studios event until 4 October.
