Pop-up ex­hi­bi­tion at Car­il­lon Court

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

A ‘COM­MU­NITY Takeover’ and clos­ing party of Mod­ern Painters New Dec­o­ra­tors’ lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion ‘The Ground is Good’ took place at Lough­bor­ough’s Car­il­lon Court Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Mod­ern Painters, New Dec­o­ra­tors (MPND) - an or­gan­i­sa­tion run­ning art projects and build­ing cre­ative com­mu­ni­ties in the town - in­vited fam­i­lies and mem­bers of The Baca Char­ity who work with young asy­lum seek­ers, and the Exarieo Trust, which works with peo­ple who have been home­less, to re­spond to the clay and ceram­ics on dis­play by mak­ing tra­di­tional clay coil pots.

The re­sults of these work­shops were then show­cased in a pop-up ex­hi­bi­tion to cel­e­brate the di­ver­sity and cre­ativ­ity of Lough­bor­ough.

The ex­hi­bi­tion ‘The Ground is Good’ fea­tured work from Olivia Bax, Eva Master­man and Leon Sadler. The works cel­e­brated Lough­bor­ough’s rich his­tory with clay and show­cased dif­fer­ent ap­proaches and new per­spec­tives on con­tem­po­rary clay prac­tice.

Lough­bor­ough MP Nicky Mor­gan at­tended the ex­hi­bi­tion and Lon­don-based artist Eva Master­man at­tended the ‘Com­mu­nity Takeover’.

MPND plans to con­tinue to work within the com­mu­nity to cu­rate events, host ex­hi­bi­tions and work­shops while sup­port­ing and de­vel­op­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for re­gional artists.

Visi­tors can join Mod­ern Painters, New Dec­o­ra­tors be­tween now and June 23, to see new draw­ings from Charn­wood Arts’ Paul Gent in ‘Where We Live and What We Know’.
