‘Apart Together’ is a collaborative project and exhibition created by Yeovil Creatives members. It resulted of a collaborative art project which started at the beginning of lockdown in response to the theme Solidarity and Kindness.
‘Apart Together’ calls for Yeovil Creatives members to submit new work to be within the postal size of 45cm x 35cm x 16cm with each member involved inviting another UK based artist to take part. More than 30 artworks will be displayed in the exhibition.
“We are living in a strange and precarious time… As a group of artists and creative people, it is important that we carry on using these skills during this difficult time by sharing our creativity”
As a growing and diverse network of creative people based in and around Yeovil, the exhibition will be a fascinating showcase of a collective action in the time of crisis. It is welcomed in a time when working together has been more challenging but also increasingly important. It will be a great opportunity to see art that connects us socially and emotionally, encouraging dialogues around the unprecedented event of recent months.
With a growing emphasis on the online presence during this time, work from ‘Apart Together’ was shared on the Instagram account @yeovilcreatives #yeovilaparttogether and at Yeovil Creatives website.
Exhibition took place between 19 September – 30 October.
Work can be purchased at Yeovil Art Space during opening hours and online shop.
