SIGN-UP FOR UPDATES THE BLOOMZ NEWSLETTER
We are The Bloomz—a diverse group of artists, linked by our creativity, belief in the importance of our art and the desire to show our work. It is quite rare to get such a collection of artists working together, and we all met on a course where we were encouraged to support each other and not see other artists as competition.
We were inspired by London’s historical ‘Bloomsbury Group’ to create a group of our own, hence ‘The Bloomz’.
We decided to start our own on-line ‘Arthouse’ that would periodically produce a virtual art show. The main objectives of our shows are:
We want to show our work and our creative processes with the additional chance to talk about our collections to collectors and anybody interested in art. The main purpose is to gain followers genuinely interested in our work, and who may be interested in buying a piece or in the future. Of course, if any collector wishes to buy on the day of the show they are very welcome.
They want a chance to meet a diverse group of artists who work in varied media and find out about their pieces, what inspires them, and learn about their processes. Artists often hear that people can find High Street galleries uninviting and intimidating places. So we wanted to break down the barriers and talk direct to anybody interested in art. Hopefully visitors will find an artist, among us, about who they would like to find out more, and thus will be able to follow them—either through social media or by joining the artist’s mailing list.
We were uninspired by the various virtual, on-line events that involve scanning through pages and pages of flat art. So we decided to organise an on-line artshow with a difference— you get to meet and chat to the artists, live, as well as see their art, in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
The Bloomz core group consist of 7 of the founding artists. There is an opportunity to apply to join the group as an associate member and from September 2021 we will be inviting guest artists to join our shows.
