Welcome to the:
2020 Horsforth Works of Art
Yes this is not a typo, we have in fact rebranded for this year only in response to the Covid 19 pandemic.
This virus however, will not dampen our spirits and we have forged ahead with a few ideas to keep the spirit of the Walk of Art alive and kicking in LS18!
In view of the recent government guidelines, the Walk of Art volunteer team have made some crucial tweaks to our usual plans.
Our focus is very much on simply sharing art safely and celebrating the amazing community spirit in Horsforth.
So what are our plans?
We are encouraging EVERYONE to share art in their windows from the 4th July to the 11th July. That’s right 1 week! You can put it up for 1 day or for the full 7 days! Completely up to you.
There will NOT be a map, just enjoy the art wherever you go as part of your exercise or essential shopping.
Online gallery – We will be showcasing artists work on these pages via an online gallery to be launched from the 4th July.
There will be an online mini festival showcasing local talents on the 4th July. One of the sessions will be hosted by the talented Tim Gomersall and Nicola Pullan
On the 5th July we will launch our youtube channel featuring artists only from the region famous and otherwise! (But famous in our eyes)
In the run up to the week we will be posting ‘How to’ videos on social media and Youtube so you can try your hand at many different forms of art!
We hope you will join us in celebrating the talent of Horsforth. We are looking forward to seeing what you have learnt and wish to share over the last few weeks!
