20th May 2008



The Charnwood based group ArtSpace will be holding their second Contemporary Art Fair in the Church Rooms over the weekend of 21st and 22nd June. Held in conjunction with the Quorn Open Gardens event, several artists will be exhibiting an array of original paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, cards and some limited edition prints.


With a group aim of encouraging art in the community, several village artists will also be exhibiting. The event will provide an excellent opportunity to browse and discuss the work on show in an informal, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. With hundreds of pieces to be browsed, you can guarantee there will be something to suit all tastes.


Artist Erica Middleton will also be taking part in the event with her open garden but there will be the added attraction of an open studio displaying paintings and drawings for your perusal and for sale. Local sculptor Nita Rao will also be creating a sculpture garden in Erica’s waterside garden. Amongst the work being shown will be her bronze, clay and willow sculptures, all which would make a perfect addition to any stylish garden.


The exhibition in the Quorn Church Rooms will be open from 2pm to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday. Refreshments will also be available.
