We are so glad to have a wonderfull window display to go along with our plant pot project for raising money for our Yeovil Creatives art group!
Our member Rachel put together the lovely pots hand decorated by our members and her green and poetic paper elements to create a stunning scene.
“I’m an illustrator and designer based in Yeovil, Somerset. This window display was originally commissioned by Weston Artspace on the theme ‘Ray of Light’ to coincide with the high streets reopening back in March. I tried to focus on a positive aspect from the COVID pandemic that I hope people will continue to value.
During this time most people have been able to slow down, take time outside in their local surroundings and appreciate how good being in nature makes them feel. Carbon emissions have dropped as well as noise pollution, which in turn has given wildlife an opportunity to thrive. More wildflower have bloomed in verges making them welcome habitats for bees and insects. The greens cape backdrop felt like the perfect fit to help display and promote Yeovil Creative’s Plant Pot Project and upcoming Front Yard Fest.“
