Triple showing for arts collective
Last updated at 19:44, Friday, 25 July 2014
A GROUP of artists are taking over a South Lakes town with not one...not two...but THREE exhibitions.
Kendal Arts Community, a co-operative of multi-media artists, is showcasing its wide and diverse array of talents at three venues in its hometown.
Launching nearly three years ago to support and promote Kendal artists, artisans, craft workers, writers and musicians, it now has more than 150 active members.
From Monday, its latest exhibition is being displayed in Castle Dairy, the historic 14th century building in Wildman Street run as a restaurant by Kendal College.
Called The Collection, the exhibition showcases works that artists are particularly pleased - essentially a ‘greatest hits’.
KAC co-ordinator, photographer Helen Isaac, said: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to display our members’ work in such a historic building.
“We are constantly exploring other ways of displaying work by Kendal’s artists in interesting ways and places. We hope to make more announcements in the near future.”
A parallel exhibition is also being run at Ruskin’s Bar, featuring art that is not suitable for the Castle Dairy setting. Both exhibitions run until early October.
And in a separate initiative, KAC is also putting on a cycling-themed art exhibition during a cycling event at K Village.
KAC was instrumental in helping K Village to run Kendal’s first Summer Art Event, and an exhibition demonstrating various art techniques is running in one of the units on the centre’s mall.
In addition artists from the group will be having stalls at K Village during Mintfest at the end of August and on other occasions.
