‘Lost ear­rings’ fea­ture in town cen­tre art

Macclesfield Express - - MACABRE MACCLESFIELD – PART FIVE -

SHOP­PERS were treated to a dis­play of award win­ning art in a pop up gallery over Christ­mas.

An 8ft tall chan­de­lier, made en­tirely out of the ‘spare’ ear­rings - left use­less af­ter the loss of the other half of their pair - was at the Macc Art Lounge in the Grosvenor Cen­tre for a week.

It was funded though Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity grant scheme and sup­port from the Grosvenor Cen­tre.

Coun Chris An­drew, Chair­man of the town coun­cil’s Fi­nance Com­mit­tee, said: “The in­stal­la­tion is a great ad­di­tion to the town for the run up to Christ­mas and I hope as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble took the op­por­tu­nity to view and enjoy the ex­hi­bi­tion.”

The Chan­de­lier of Lost Ear­rings was cre­ated by Lau­ren Sa­gar and Sharon Camp­bell and won a Na­tional Lottery Good Causes Award and Bri­tish Women Artists Com­pe­ti­tion 2015.

Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil’s Com­mu­nity Grants Scheme has also sup­ported the Mac­cles­field Barn­aby Fes­ti­val, Food4Macc, Friends of Vic­to­ria Park and an ex­hi­bi­tion re­lat­ing to con­sci­en­tious ob­jec­tors in the First World War.
