Sherwood Art week opens on Saturday

The annual Sherwood Art Week opens on Saturday when shops and businesses will be giving artists from the area the chance to showcase their work.

During the week, the shop windows on Mansfield Road will come alive with paintings, ceramics, textiles, photographs and much more.

Anita Wakefield, who is chair of the SAW organising group, said: “There are 90 artists involved this year. There is such a creative buzz in Sherwood and it is wonderful to have the opportunity to bring the community together through exhibitions, workshops, art in the shops and the Secret Garden Craft Fair. Everyone involved, from the organisers to the artists offering workshops, is volunteering, which really demonstrates the creative energy and vibrancy of Sherwood.”

Some of the highlights include:

Saturday: Art Marquee at Sherwood Festival at Woodthorpe Park from noon until 6pm.

Monday – Friday: Have a Go Workshops from 10am until noon; 1pm – 3pm.

Friday – Sunday: Exhibitions in community venues.

Saturday: The Secret Garden Craft Fair at the United Reformed Church on Edwards Lane. There will be more than 40 stalls, food, music, kids’ area and exhibitions. It takes place between 11am and 6pm.

There will be an information stall at Room Full of Butterflies on Mansfield Road throughout the week for more details.
