Modern Painters, New Decorators is an artist-led organisation running a gallery, shop and studios from a shopping centre in Loughborough, East Midlands. We enable artist to re-energise the local by producing free contemporary art exhibitions, artist-produced products and creative membership schemes. We’re known for our collaborative approach to exhibition-making and our unique volunteer development programme. The project was started in 2017 by artists and makers with a connection to the town.
