Information about Art up Close

In 2010 a group of Artists in South Cheshire got together to set up an Arts festival to showcase local Artists work. In June 2011 Nantwich Festival of Arts was put on in Nantwich town centre over 3 days, showcasing a wide variety of visual and performance Arts. Following on from the success of this venture Art Up Close was formed to act as a hub for quality Artists to collaborate on projects and showcase their work. We now number over 100 Artists. We have curated exhibitions in Crewe Hall in the contemporary side of the award winning hotel to showcase our Artwork throughout the year. Our  partnerships with local government and business have enabled us to use our core of Community Artists to engage in exciting Artist led projects in the community. Between us our skill set ranges from working with children of varying ability and disability to both vulnerable and senior adults providing  workshops in a variety of disciplines.
