CARDIGAN TRIANGLE ART DAY GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH IN ITS SEVENTH YEAR
Come on Barbie, Let’s Go Cardi!
This year’s Cardigan Triangle Art Day creates a whole new genre with its ‘Great Cardi Challenge’. In between all the artists hosted in residents’ houses, you’ll discover a trail of cardigan connections you never knew existed. You may be lucky enough to spot a diamante-encrusted Cardigan Hurst or wicked knitwear from movie blockbuster, ‘The Devil Wears Cardis’. Vote for your favourite as you feed your artistic inspiration with home-made cakes at the Art Café, this year in the church of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Browse, buy or just enjoy prints, jewellery, illustrations, landscapes, portraits, photography, poetry and painting across a whole range of artists, including lots of new people and work to see. You can also make your own art in activities run for the Art Day by Left Bank Leeds.
Full of wild animals last year, this year children from Spring Bank Primary School bring Sparrow Park to life with their creative know-how. This hidden corner of Headingley is being restored by local residents and will be open as part of the Art Day.
The seventh Cardigan Triangle Art Day runs from 12 to 5pm on Sunday 30 September 2012. Admission is free and brochures with maps are available on the day for £1 each. Find the Cardigan Triangle between Burley Park train station, Headingley Stadium and Sparrow Park (corner of Chapel Lane and Cardigan Road). Full details on Facebook and at headingley.org/artday.
The Cardigan Triangle is accessible by bus (Nos. 18 and 56 stop immediately adjacent; Nos. 1, 28, 38, 91, 96, 28, X84 all stop within 5 minute walk) and by train at Burley Park station on the Harrogate Line.
Admission is free and a full colour programme with full details of all the artists will be available (at a small charge) from the reception.
