Thanks to all those who came to celebrate the work of Chris Bedwell on Friday evening.
Chris’ work which slices up London and presents to us recognisable monuments in unrecognisable ways celebrates London in muted and coloured hues.
Take a walk with Chris and discover the capital through fresh eyes.
London is like one of those jigsaws that you start over the Christmas season. You are full of enthusiasm to begin with, dividing the pieces into some semblance of order before beginning on the fitting and refitting of sections. Alot of the individual pieces can look similar until you try and jam them in next to each other.
When you walk through London each ‘piece’ of this complex puzzle presents a new style of building and a new cultural flavor. This is the energy that photographer Chris Bedwell captures in his engaging collection of photographs entitled Fractured London.
This is to be Chris’ first solo exhibition and we are so pleased to play host to this London centered show.
Come along and help fit the pieces together at the open evening
Friday 29th November 6 – 9pm
Photographer Steven Chandler brings his love of the French countryside to the New Space Gallery. Through his emotive images we gain an insight into his long standing relationship with France and his many journeys through it over it and along it.
This selection of images hint at the person behind the camera in a gentle and unobtrusive way which adds flavor to the photographs.
Do come along and have a mini holiday in north London!
Last Thursday I was to be found atop a step ladder, a screwdriver in my mouth and some hanging string hooked over my ear. I was ofcourse observing all health and safety legislation whilst hanging the pieces by therapists from the London Art Therapy Centre.
The exhibition shows how the therapists who work in a busy centre in north London still find a chance to create their own work which stands alone from their professional life. Each piece is a consideration and exploration of the human condition from the deepest pasts to modern day pop culture. All are handled in a personal and individual way.
I do hope you will be able to pop along and view the work. And whilst you are in the area why don’t you come along and view Art + Healing at the Free Space Gallery. It is a truely moving exhibition and we have some wonderful and FREE workshops on the theme of art therapy.
An exhibition showcasing art therapists as artists in their own rights, a series of personal and reflective pieces by therapists from the London Art Therapy Centre in north London.
Some pieces reflect on the narratives of their clients and others use therapeutic methodologies to explore their own artistic practice.
The exhibition is free and open to all.
We all spent a great afternoon admiring the work of the students that had been inspired by the museum collection. Each student had found their own way of expressing London transport with a great amount of colour and movement for all to see!
For more information about the work, the participating organisations or the gallery itself please do drop us a line.
The New Space Gallery began a few years ago and we have always sought to support the work of local artists as well as local groups. We are so pleased to welcome back therefore the students of the Leighton Project based in Kentish Town. The students were some of the first to show at the New Space Gallery and it is great to have their work on the walls once more.
Project 353 The Summer Exhibition is a collaboration between the students and the London Transport Museum with whom they have been working for the last year celebrating the Metropolitan Railway & 150 years of London Underground. The exhibition has a real sense of exuberance and energy.
