Artists in Residence
21st June to 2nd September
A remarkable display of art throughout the Abbey.
Over the last eighteen months three Leicestershire artists – Peter Clayton, Michelle Holmes and Sarah Kirkby – have been meeting up at Launde, walking, talking and drawing together in the Abbey grounds and the woodland that surrounds it.
They are delighted to be able to show some of their work around various sites at Launde Abbey during the Launde 900 celebration.
Peter is a painter, Sarah a printmaker and Michelle works in textiles. They have all worked together on several projects over the last decade and have uncovered a shared sensibility and a sense of enquiry about what they are inspired by, and how and why they make pictures.
During the summer celebrations at Launde there will be a variety of new work displayed in the Reception area, Tea Rooms, Dining Room, Chapel and Drawing Room. Some rooms may be closed for short periods of time during the exhibition period (when in use by retreat groups or for services). If you can only visit once, we strongly recommend contacting us in advance on 01572 717254 for details of accessible rooms.
All the work on display is for sale; please enquire at Reception for details.
