Scatter chaps – in the name of art

Thursday, January 26, 2012

ART will no longer be confined to galleries in Cornwall.

An innovative new exhibition has been launched, increasing access to art for all.

Scattered Art is a series of temporary exhibitions taking place once a month with new and exciting art in unusual locations.

The events will last just a couple of hours in a ‘secret’ location which won’t be revealed until the day of the event.

Those attending can log on to a website on the day to find out where the exhibition is taking place.

The next event is happening on Sunday between 3pm and 6pm.

To find out the location in advance pick up a map this week from The Old Bakery Studios, Truro or The Fish Factory Art Space in Falmouth or log on to www.scatteredart.co.uk from 9am on Sunday.

To publicise the launch of their website, members of Scattered Art have placed washing pegs on people, objects and places from Porthtowan to Polzeath.

Sophie Capron, a secondary school teacher and artist from Truro, is one of the founding members.

She said: “The idea is that you could stumble upon a piece of artwork while out on a Sunday stroll or sunning yourself on the beach.

“We want people to find our pegs and log on to our website to become a part of this exciting new experience.”

The launch took place last May at The Fish Factory in Falmouth. More than 70 people turned up.

Since then locations have included Truro Fencing Club (with live fencing) and Vanilla nightclub.

Scattered Art exhibitions include dance, film, sculpture, paintings, music and photography.

Venues, artwork and performers are required for the upcoming Scattered Art events.
