Make a blank valuable

Ali Moosavi - BEAT submission
For the popular Borough of Ealing Art Trail (BEAT) exhibition, Ealing LIP photographers created a collection of work entitled Oblique Strategies (taking inspiration from Brian Eno) back in 2018.
 
One of our group, Ali Moosavi, donated his print from the BEAT exhibition to the OPEN Ealing gallery earlier this year, and worked with them to find a charity based in Ealing to benefit from the sale,
 
OPEN Ealing released an update on their website last week:
The sale of Ali Moosavi’s photograph, Make a blank valuable by putting it in an exquisite frame, this week has benefitted Ealing based charity BEfriend. The charity matches friendly and reliable volunteers with people who have become lonely and socially isolated. Volunteers provide company and companionship and help those they befriend feel engaged with the world again, either through bringing hope and warmth in with them or by helping people get out. During recent months their services have been even more important and they have extra pressures in delivering the required help in a safe way.
Rachel Hill, Director, commented that all the money raised from the sale of Ali’s photograph will go towards sustaining the service.

Not just one but three exhibtions!

As well as the group exhibition Home which has now started two other group members have solo shows as part of BEAT. They are both very close to each other in Hanwell. 

Marie is exhibiting at Fade to Black coffee shop which is open daily. The show runs until 15 Sept.

Minako Iwatake has a show The Bookshelf at The Clock Tower Café, 151 Uxbridge Road, Hanwell, London W7 3SP  and it is open from 6-15th September, from 8am - 7pm each day.

So there are currently three exhibitions running in Ealing with members of the group!

Perusing photo books

At the March meeting members brought photo books that they liked. We spent getting on for an hour wandering round looking at and discussing those books. Whilst several regulars were away there were still 17 of us.

Then as ever members showed photos including an amazing selection of work by new member Shaun Hodge and shots from Valencia from Robin Segulem. 

We also discussed BEAT and as I write are now entered to exhibit in September 2019 on the theme of Home.


the memory of trees

 

 

February's meeting saw a couple of new people join. The deadline for entering BEAT 2019 is 19th March so that was a big focus along with planning the year ahead (see the post above).

The meetings now being on Wednesday mean that Ray Higginbottom will be back joining us from time to time. He is now editor of one of the RPS magazines for the visual art group and the first one he has done arrived the day before so he was able to show us that and it looked great! And we enjoyed looking at some of the latest photos he has been working on which include a new exploration 'the memory of trees' (an Enya album title inspired theme!). Here's a couple of the first photos above...


Exhibition Opens

Oblique Strategies from Edmond Terakopian on Vimeo.

We had a wonderful opening of our group Oblique Strategies exhibition. The video above was put together by Edmond Terakopian and gives a really good feel of the photos, how they are hung and the space. About 150 people came along to the opening - thank you all so much! The photos look great in the space.

There is a gallery of the photos here where you can also purchase prints in a range of sizes and types of paper.

BEAT now kicks off this weekend so do have a look at the exhibition and go and check out other local artists including Ray who has a solo show in Fade To Black.


Online Gallery

There is a brand new online gallery which currently has two projects in of the two group shows including Oblique Strategies. You can order prints to buy too! Please note if you are ordering a print that is square it will get sent to you square even though that doesn't seem to be an ordering option. Here's the blurb from the about section of the site:

Welcome to our gallery website where you can view the group's projects and also order prints from some of our photographers. If the image you're after is not featured here or available for purchase, please contact the photographer directly to make arrangements.

The online gallery's print sales system (best used on a Mac or PC) caters for everything from smaller and resin coated prints at very affordable prices, aimed towards the photo enthusiast, all the way to larger prints (including real BW prints, fibre prints and Giclée prints) aimed more at the appreciator of very high quality prints. All prints are made by Metro Imaging, one of the UK's top professional photo labs.

Please note that if the image you're ordering is in a square format, the size of the print will correspond to the smaller dimension of the print size ordered. For example, if you order a 10"x8" print, a square image will be 8"x8"

Huge thanks to Edmond Terakopian for his efforts in setting it up.
