BLUE ART LIST PR:  LEYTONSTONE GETS READY TO HOST THE TENTH LEYTONSTONE ARTS TRAIL

lat_webimage_6

This mailing list is about getting information about artists, shows, galleries to those we think might be interested in these kind of things, to the arts media, the galleries, the bloggers……

The tenth annual Leytonstone Arts Trail will feature the work of over 100 artists in more than 40 locations as all manner of venues are transformed into temporary galleries over nine days in July.

Started by a small group in 2008 and entirely self-funded and run by volunteers, the egalitarian entry criteria attract a diverse range of artists from hobbyists to professionals, with ages from primary school to pensioners. Each year evolves its own personality and surprise hits owing to the particular mix of participating artists and hosting organisations.

lat_webimage_1

Cafes, pubs, churches, art studios, a number of homes and even a garden shed within the borders of Leytonstone will host artworks in all media, with an eclectic range of events running alongside throughout.

The Trail will run from Saturday 1st July to Sunday 9th July; visitors are invited to devise their own Trail routes using the maps on the Trail Guide or the website.

Trail events this year include live poetry, performance art, drop-in workshops and a tactile game about life; all are free or very minimal entrance charge.  Again, these are listed on the website and in the Guide so people can plan around their own interests.

This year, two large clusters of Trail locations are at the top of the High Road, making an ideal walk from the Quakers Meeting House via the North Star down to Leytonstone’s “Art Quarter” around Church Lane with venues including coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants, with further locations spreading out to the borders of the E11 postcodes.

Chris Davies, participating artist said:
“What I like about the trail is that it brings a rich variety of visual arts to Leytonstone – this has an uplifting effect on a great number of people and brings communities together.”

lat_webimage_2

Naoise McGeer, Head of Art at Leytonstone School said:
“The Arts Trail provides our students with the opportunity to have their work viewed alongside successful practising artists in the borough.”

The Trail reaches out to the local community inviting all to enjoy the creative diversity Leytonstone can offer. It makes art accessible to everyone, both as producers and consumers.

The full programme list is available now on www.leytonstoneartstrail.org and the printed Guide will be available from participating venues later this month.

Further information and a press pack including high resolution versions of the images below can be found at www.leytonstoneartstrail.org.

somethingblack_preview1

The Something Black had just over 6000 views in the first 18 hours, going well so far,  These on-line art exhibitions are proving to be rather interesting, no substitute to the physical Cultivate gallery shows of course but an interesting addition alongside all the other things that happen via Cultivate.. 

The next physical Cultivate show will happen in June. Interact will open on June 15th in a nice big white-walled space called Coate Studios here in Hackney, East London, we’re busy pulling together an exciting line-up of artists for Interact right now, more soon, We’re rather excited about Interact and this new space (to us) just off the Hackney Road….

BLUE ART LIST PR: Red, an art exhibition on-line…

Hot on the heels of Cultivate’s triumphant return to Dalston’s  beautiful basement gallery known as BSMT Space with the Fragile show two weeks ago, Cultivate brings you Red.


Opening on Monday February 27th at 6pm, Red will be another gathering of pro-active artists and another exercise in artist-led cross-pollination.

This time we Cultivate on line, sometimes we do it in formal galleries, or in warehouses or at dog shows or under railway bridges or in car parks at the seaside, this time we do it online. A group show featuring the art of 20 selected artists, selected via an on-line open call. Red goes live at 6pm (UK time) on Monday 27th February at www.cultivategallery.com and www.organthing.com.

onlineartculti_feb2017

Opening on Monday evening, Red will run on-line until, well until who knows when, maybe forever? 

RED will be an on-line exhibition. Red will feature the work of 20 selected artists. Submissions are being accepted now via www.cultivategallery.com. The show will go live on line on the Organ website and on the Cultivate website on February 27th and will run until the world ends (or we do).

The work will be of a red nature, the colour will hopefully unite the show, we’re exploring the submissions now, this is very much an experiment. More details about the open call via www.cultivategallery.com

“I’m still not sure how I feel about the notions of art on-line (I avoided instagram for ages and ages), but then that’s why we’re experimenting with it and debating it here at Cultivate. I look at the numbers of people around the world who view the features on gallery openings and exhibitions via both the Cultivate website and in much bigger numbers via the busy Organ website – for instance over eight thousand people viewed the photos (and words) from the Kembra Pfahler show at Emalin Gallery in East London when the images (and words) were posted on the Organ website.  Eight thousand viewers during the week the review went live on the Organ website back at the end of last year.  I very much doubt if anywhere near a thousand people actually physically went to the show when it was on.  My own art website has already been visited by people from New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Singapore, USA and more this morning, nobody living in Singapore can see my art on an East London gallery wall unless they look at photos of the show on-line.

On-line art can never be a substitute for seeing most people’s art in the flesh on a gallery wall (or a street wall, or hanging in a tree, or…), there is no substitute for seeing art right there in front of you living and breathing, right there in the flesh, alive, the texture, the size, the smell – however as artists, we surely can’t ignore the fact that most people see out art via computer screens can we? This surely has to be embraced doesn’t it? Surely we have to experiment with it? And so Red will open on-line next Monday on both the Cultivate and Organ websites, come and see if the experiment works”. (Sean Worrall)

The opening night of Red is on Monday 27th Feb, 6pm at (UK time) at www.cultivategallery.com and www.organthing.com.

PRESS RELEASE: Cultivate presents Fragile and more pro-active cross-pollination…

cult_fragile_feb2017

Cutivate returns once more to Dalston and that beautiful basement gallery known as BSMT Space for the third in a trilogy of artist-led group shows  .

Opening on Thursday February 9th at 6pm, Fragile will be another gathering of pro-active artists and another maximalist exercise in artist-led cross-pollination. A room alive with contemporary painters, street art flavours, performers, print makers and more….

Opening on Thursday evening and then a short sharp shock of a show through the weekend and closing on Sunday, no messing about, just artists, walls, people and….  Once more this is about taking art and artists out of those comfortable little boxes that the London art scene appears to need, mixing things up, messing with the rules, nothing fragile.

Last time show curators Emma Harvey and Sean Worrall invited a wallpaper printer (currently hanging in the V&A), alongside a street artist currently painting East London walls, a London dress-maker currently raging against London Fashion week, a contemporary painter currently exploring the view found through a circle, a performance artist freshly returned from her LA performance next to a pro-active artist still questioning the destruction of the mining communities, this time…. well come and see

Opening night is on Thursday 9th Feb, 6-9pm at BSMT Space, 5d Stoke Newington, Dalston (then open Fri, Sat, Sun February 10th – 12th, 11am until 6pm)

OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCES: Amy Kingsmill, Marnie Scarlet

ARTIST LINE UP:  APPLE TART, ADAM ESPIRA, BRUCE LOVELOCK, CAIT SWEENEY, CHARLIE McFARLEY, DEBORAH GRIFFIN, ELIZABETH SANDFORD RICHARDSON, EMMA HARVEY, JIMMY C, JOANNA GEORGIADES, MODES OF BEING, MIA JANE HARRIS, QUIET BRITISH ACCENT, ROSSO, SEAN WORRALL, VESNA PARCHET, and…

Emma and I shall be pulling the  final bits of the line up together in the coming days, we like to hold back a little space for some spontaneous last minute gathering together of things like a banner or two from that Anti-Trump Woman’s March last week (have you got one? Did you see Cait’s, she’d call him what?). Expect a couple more names to be added to the Fragile list before the window closes.

BSMT SPACE is at 5d Stoke Newington Road, Dalston, London N16 8BH

PRESS RELEASE: Gold, one final splash of shining art in the basement this Thursday…

bsmt_gold_stripflyer

PRESS RELEASE: Gold, one final splash of shining art in the basement this Thursday…

Gold, the final four day splash of a show in the space for this year so they say, the final show of what has been a rather positive year down in that basement art gallery down beneath that busy street over in Dalston, London, N16.  BSMT Space have had a rather good year, somewhere in the middle of that year they celebrated being their underground space for twelve months and then they carried on filling the basement space with a whole array of stimulating art. The focus tends to lean towards the urban side of life, the art of the street, slices of graff, street art, their most recent triumph was a show called Right Side of The Tracks – Rocco, Marr and Chaos,  and a gallery cut in half by rail-yard fencing and the living smell of spray paint – although thoughts letting of “the bombs” at BSMT Space are not afraid to mix things up when they need to. And art does need to be mixed up, rules are for breaking, now and again in needs to be Debased.  Gold is the final show of the year at Dalston’s BSMT Space
