Lead by artist Natasha Rand, we are working with care home residents and staff, young people and creatives telling the stories of bravery and kindness across generations. Podcasts, window displays, workshops and family activities take place in different forms and locations.
Yeovil Art Space is delighted to support bringing Window Wanderland to Yeovil between 15 and 28 February. Working with volunteers, artists, creatives, neighbourhoods, organisations and local businesses, together we will create a festival of colour and light that illuminate the town for two weeks in the darkest months. Anyone can join in either as a WANDERER or a WINDOWMAKER.
Our map is getting busier with nearly 200 households, businesses and organisations taking part.
Join us to make the 1st Yeovil Window Wanderland a spectacular one.
‘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.
We are now safe to open our space with new exhibition Apart Together and more!
‘Apart Together’ gathers new artworks from more than 20 Yeovil Creatives members and their friends. It resulted from a collaborative art project which started at the beginning of lockdown in response to the theme Solidarity and Kindness.

To celebrate the growing and diverse network of creative people based in and around Yeovil, the exhibition also presents a collective action in the time of crisis.
