Hundreds of people are taking part in an exciting Matisse ‘crowd art’ initiative organised by Nottinghamshire County Council in the run-up to Easter.

A number of community groups are developing a series of artworks inspired by the artist Henri Matisse whose cut-out paper works have recently been a hit at the Tate Gallery in London. This was the final chapter of his career when Matisse produced his most spectacular cut-outs.

‘MatEaster’ celebrates Matisse during Easter and will be open in the Gallery at Rufford Craft Centre from 3rd April to 19th April as an exhibition of community art.

Alongside the exhibition are public workshop craft sessions by professional artists where everyone can get involved for free, 10.30am-4pm, in Big Art Space at the Craft Centre every day of the exhibition. Items made during these sessions will then take pride of place in the exhibition.
