Blooming Art is an art competition open to anyone living in the Farnham area and is being run as part of Farnham In Bloom.  Farnham in Bloom is the largest community project in the town and now incorporates not just hanging baskets and pretty gardens but arts, dance and conservation projects.

 For Blooming Art 2018 entrants have to make a collage on the theme of “Cycle”. There is no size limitation but the work will be on public display and must be robust enough for this.

Blooming Art is run by Blooming Art CIC and entry is free

Why Collage?

A collage is a visual piece, which can be either two or three dimensional. It is made from bringing together different materials and resources (such as newspaper, collected objects, photographs, material, recycled items – the possibilities are endless) to create something new. It is therefore a very versatile form and does not rely on you having particular skills in painting or drawing, or huge resources.

For Blooming Art 2018 entrants have to make a collage on the theme of “Cycle”, which should be taken in its broadest sense and interpreted freely.

We would like you to use re-cycled materials or found objects as much as possible but this is not obligatory.

There is no size limitation but the work will be on public display and must be robust enough for this.

When making a piece please consider how you will display it in an exhibition. If it is to hang on the wall, please present it in such a way that it can be hung. If it is free standing, make sure that it will stand up. In all cases make sure that bits will not fall off (we cannot be responsible for running repairs) and it is not dangerous to the public.

Blooming Art 2015

Blooming Art 2015

Blooming Art was afree art competition run by me as part of Farnham In Bloom.

Farnham in Bloom is the largest community project run in Farnham by Farnham Town Council. In 2015 I suggested to FTC that as Farnham is a Craft Town there should be an art element to Farnham in Bloom and suggested running Blooming Art. The suggestion was accepted and some funding for workshops was given by the South Street Trust.

The competition was open to anyone over the age of 5 living in the Farnham area. Entrants were challenged to make a collage on the theme of "Blooming". In this first year 40 entries were received. 

The entries were judged by professional artists.

The project was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by South and South East In Bloom judges.
