Abstract Art Exhibition

An Exhibition of Art, Poetry and Prose in support of Sleaford Live Week

Somersby_450

This year’s theme, Abstract Art, has been inspired by the remarkable record set at Sotheby’s February auction when an abstract painting by Gerhard Richter achieved a price of £30,400,000 (that’s right, over 30 million pounds!). This was a world record for any painting by a living European artist. The canvas titled ‘Abstraktes Bild’ measured 9ft 10in x 8ft 2in and was painted in 1986. Click here to see the painting on Sotheby’s website (opens new window).

Candlesby_450Once again, our Sleaford Live exhibition has two elements; excellent art by local artists with poetry and prose from the Sleaford Hub Writers group.

Now the exhibition is in place the Sleaford Hub Writers will create individual stories and poems for the exhibits, and these will be displayed with the artwork during Sleaford Live week, which starts on Fri 01 May. So it is worth visiting this exhibition twice. Firstly to enjoy your own interpretation of the abstract art; then to revisit to see the literary interpretation from the Hub Writers. Allow yourself to be drawn into this eclectic mix of colours, textures and ideas.
