A window on the arts
Thame Art Crawl returns to the windows of the Town Centre
We can’t deny that 2020 has been a year of isolation. Lockdown life has meant that those desperate for a touch of culture have had to resort to watching plays on YouTube, tuning in for Grayson Perry’s Art Club and exploring galleries through their computers. While there is something engaging about walking through the Guggenheim whilst sitting at home in your pyjamas, nothing can replace being able to view pieces of art in ‘real life’. Thame Art Crawl 2020, running from Thursday 15 – Sunday 18 of October, will provide you with this opportunity.
This fabulous pop-up annual art event will run in a similar way to previous years – showcasing a wealth of creative local talent in venues around Thame’s Town Centre. There will be paintings, pottery, photography, fused glass, sculptures and more.
The only difference from previous years, will be that the majority of the work will be set up as a promenade experience, with the town’s shop windows providing the displays, ensuring that social distancing is maintained and everyone feels safe exploring the exhibition at all times. While it’s unlikely that there will be any workshops to engage in during the event, things are changing all the time, so make sure that you stay up to date with how the event is unfolding by signing up to the newsletter through the form on their website. www.thameartcrawl.com. You can also follow the event on Instagram and Facebook @thameartcrawl
More details will follow, along with the publication the annual Thame Art Crawl map that will guide you to participating venues. So get the dates in your diary to enjoy 4 days of tangible culture on your doorstep.
