No open arts exhibition this year – get creative in your local paper instead

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

The 2020 Cheadle Arts Festival had been scheduled to take place this month but due to the current coronavirus situation the creative extravaganza had to be cancelled. There are many wonderfully talented artists within our community and we wanted to be able to give them an opportunity to still showcase their talents and so we, at the Times & Echo, have teamed up with Catherine Doel, Kirsty Spittle and Darren Roberts – the volunteers who would have been organising the Open Art Exhibition in Cheadle - to bring the exhibition to our paper instead.

The 2020 Cheadle Arts Festival had been scheduled to take place this month but due to the current coronavirus situation the creative extravaganza had to be cancelled.

There are many wonderfully talented artists within our community and we wanted to be able to give them an opportunity to still showcase their talents and so we, at the Times & Echo, have teamed up with Catherine Doel, Kirsty Spittle and Darren Roberts – the volunteers who would have been organising the Open Art Exhibition in Cheadle – to bring the exhibition to our paper instead.

We are inviting artists – both professional and amateur – to send in pictures of themselves with one of their latest creations for a special Cheadle Arts Festival picture spread.

Catherine said: “We had such a jam packed programme planned for this year’s Cheadle Arts Festival, and look forward to putting it on next year.

In the meantime, we are really grateful to the Times & Echo for working with us on this project.

A lot of people have found being creative has helped them through lockdown and these difficult times.

We are hoping they have a picture they’ve done fairly recently that we can display in this virtual Open Arts Exhibition.

Artists, amateur and professional, are invited to submit their work to be featured in the paper, and the Arts Festival will also feature them all in an online gallery on our website.”

Are you a professional or amateur artist who lives in Cheadle, Uttoxeter and surrounding areas, or beyond, who would like to take part in this virtual exhibition?

Email a picture of yourself holding one of your latest creations to news@timesandecho.co.uk, along with your full name, your town/village; heading the email with ‘Cheadle Arts Festival.’
