The Henderson Hub is bringing the community together with The Great Abbots Langley Canvases for the Creative Challenge.
The arts centre, based in The Henderson Hall, High Street, sold around 400 artist canvases to residents throughout July, which they are now expected to make their own before Saturday, August 22.
Creators are encouraged to think outside the square, so to speak – you don’t just have to paint it – you could also glue it, stitch it, attach things to it, sew it or anything else you can think up.
All canvases must be completed and sent back to Henderson Hub by August 22, so that they can all be included in the exhibition between August 25 and September 12. All canvases will be for sale at £20 each, split equally between the Hub and the artist.
Henderson Hub asked residents what the competition meant to them “as a participant or encourager of others, particularly during this current difficult situation”.
One response said: “It’s a great chance to be let loose on a manageable sized project with no remit, just the freedom of your own imagination. And to be a small part of the final exhibition really will bring arts and people together, in a time when togetherness is so missed.”
Another said: “Love the thought of doing something with this creative space I have been given. Best bit is looking at all the creative results from others – some brilliant ideas.”
