 UpstART exhibition at Bishop Street Methodist Church

Art at the Chapel would like to say a big thank you to all the artists who took part in making our recent Shape & Form exhibition such a great success. The wide range and high quality of the work was appreciated by many who came to visit and the exhibition received a lot of positive feedback.

We asked a couple of the artists to tell us about themselves and about how the exhibition came about.

“We all met at the Richard Attenborough Centre, now Embrace Arts. Some of the group have never exhibited before, so it was a new venture for them. Some of us are exhibiting in Leicester and the surrounding area on a regular basis. We are all amateur artists and enjoyed the challenge of putting on an exhibition. 2 or our regular tutors from Embrace Arts visited the exhibition and encouraged us to make it part of our future practice. Some of us are members of different Leicestershire Art groups, go to work shops at Embrace Arts and the Leicester Print Workshop and some of us have been on short painting holidays together.”Eileen Brooke

“We all have attended classes at Embrace Arts university of Leicester  we a diverse lot and have taken many classes such as painting with different media, abstract art, drawing with pastel, oil paints, acrylics and collage.  We have been on short courses over weekends and in vacations run by Embrace Many of us have been to history of arts lectures.” Hilary Nelson
