A lot of time was taken up this evening in discussing our exhibitions as we have a lot of organising to do! Our London’s Waterways (below) recently opened at Southall’s Dominion Centre, and will continue to the end of July, with the possibility of an extension.
The next one will be at St Mary’s Church in South Ealing, where huge square format, black and white prints will be suspended between the arches in the nave of the church. This display will form part of the Borough of Ealing Art Trail (BEAT) over two weekends in September. And then from October to December we return to Artisan, a local coffee house, with each month hosting a different group of members.
We also had a visit from Gillian of West London Arts Scene, who came to talk to us about an exhibition they are organising – that we might like to get involved in. It’s an exhibition which will travel around the borough’s thirteen libraries. Several members expressed an interest and she’ll get back to us with more information.
A few people had brought along images to share…
Frankie McAllister brought along some photos from her recent hiking trip to the high altitude desert of Ladakh, in the north Indian Himalaya. It’s a remote region characterised by arid high mountains and vivid green valleys – and also has many historic monasteries. Frankie will be part of the upcoming exhibition at Greenwich, organised by Peter Luck.
Sean McDonnell has been walking the streets with his camera since the 80s. These two images were taken in Venice.
Danilo Leonardi brought along some photos taken on the London underground. Danilo is interested in the use of urban space, the relationship between people and the built-up environment – and these are part of his ongoing project around that subject.
