In the lead-up to Easter 2023, West Wilts Vineyard will host a community art exhibition called ‘Hope Springs’. Despite the difficulties we face in our world, this exhibition aims to celebrate art around the theme of ‘Hope Springs’ as a reminder that there is more to life than bad news stories. There is hope!
This unique collection of art is a celebration of hope springing up, even in the toughest of times. Contributing professional artists from across West Wiltshire. Some
artists have created work especially for this exhibition; others will bring pieces that broadly fit the theme of ‘Hope Springs’. The exhibition is hosted in the beautifully
restored Emmanuel’s Yard.
Alongside the work of professionals, children and families have been encouraged to contribute. As Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist; the problem is staying an
artist when you grow up.”
Mark Searle, one of the Senior Pastors at West Wilts Vineyard, says: “Art can speak deeply to us of hope and life. Our aim is that this exhibition will help us see through
these difficult times to the new thing that is springing up.”
Emmanuel’s Yard is an inspirational space and was beautifully restored in 2018. It is home to West Wilts Vineyard church, which also runs the Storehouse. Last year, the
Storehouse Foodbank fed over 4000 people. Emmanuel’s Yard is one of Trowbridge’s hidden gems and is tucked behind Church Street and Union Street.
