Sleaford Art Event 2015

March 30, 2015


The popular Sleaford Art Event returns to the Carre Gallery for the second year. This year’s exhibition has 79 paintings in a wide range of media and subject matter. The event attracted over 450 visitors last year over the two weeks and we look forward to topping that in 2015.

Art Challenge:

The challenge is different each year with the participants receiving no prior knowledge of subject matter. This year’s challenge was a portrait of a lady who volunteered to be the subject, with two hours given to complete the artwork. The resulting portraits are displayed anonymously in the gallery and visitors are invited to cast their vote to choose the best piece.

The Art Event is open 10 am – 4 pm from Mon 30 March until Sat 11 April. (Closed on Sunday)
