We are currently crowdfunding for The Court of Love – our upcoming art and poetry exhibition examining Valentine’s Day at Exchange Place Studios, Sheffield.
The Court of Love is a group exhibition that sees artists and poets respond to the theme of Valentine’s Day. The exhibition itself is themed like a medieval court – referencing the first ever occurrence of Valentine’s Day which featured a feast, poetry competitions and jousting. Some artists have chosen to incorporate the theme in their work.
15 artists from around the UK will each deliver their unique and intriguing interpretation of Valentine’s Day. And poets who submitted to The Court of Love’s poetry competition will see their work displayed. In the spirit of competition, the public will get a chance to vote for their favorite poem, and the poet receiving the most votes will win a prize.
We hope that the exhibition provides a fun, intriguing and alternative Valentine’s Day experience. However, for the exhibition to be the best it can be, we need your help! Your contribution will pay for materials needed to stage the exhibition and a means to stage two special events. In return you can receive fantastic rewards & invitations to our events. This is also a wonderful chance to own fantastic original art works such as these:
Your donation will also help support artists and help further cement Exchange Place Studios’ presence as a prominent arts venue in Sheffield.
