Exhibitions

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!

Home - Group Exhibition as part of BEAT September 2019

We're excited to let you know we have a group exhibition as part of BEAT - the Borough of Ealing Art trail 2019. See below for details. Note we are in a new venue this year - Rickyard in Walpole Park. Hope to see you there.

We tend to think of ‘home’ as a haven, somewhere we can retreat to after a busy or stressful day. It’s where our family, our partners, our familiar faces and favourite things are… where we can feel secure among the bricks and mortar of our domestic bliss. But it can be more complex than that. Some feel tied down by this image of home, with a longing to escape the over-familiar and make new memories elsewhere; for the elderly, loneliness can be an issue… and increasingly, contemporary times suggest other stories; home is a luxury some just do not have. The world is changing and for many the notion of home is changing too. Photographers from Ealing LIP reflect on what ‘home’ means to them.

At The Rickyard, Walpole Park, from 6th - 15th September.

Opening times:

Fri 6th, 12 - 7pm; Sat 7th & Sun 8th, 12 - 6pm
Mon 9th to Thurs 12th, 12 - 5pm; Fri 13th, 12 -7pm; Sat 14th & Sun 15th, 12 - 6pm

Activities

Longing for home

For some of us home is a place we take for granted, somewhere we can return to - but for others in the world, conflict or occupation has meant they have had to flee their home and are unable to return. They make home in a new place but still have memories of home from their homeland and a longing or an ache for it. Many Palestinians who have been exiled from their homes carry a key to remember home, and as a sign of their longing. This workshop will be a chance to hear stories of home, exile and longing. Facilitated by Jonny Baker whose photo ‘The Key’ is in the exhibition. The Rickyard, 4pm, Saturday 14th Sept.

Photowalk

Your camera and your curiosity are all you need! Join exhibitors Brigitte Flock and Chris Moxey for a local photowalk. This is not a technical session, just a fun way to enjoy photography with like-minded people and perhaps be inspired by something you may not have noticed before. Duration approximately 1.5 hours. Meet at the Rickyard, 1pm, Saturday 7th Sept

Insta Challenge: Home

Participate in the Ealing LIP BEAT 2019 project and see your own photographs become part of the exhibition. Use the hashtag #LIPBEATHOME to tag your Instagram picture on the theme ‘home’ and every day we’ll pick the best one to print and display in the gallery at The Rickyard! Coordinated by Ray Malcolm.

Collage/Scrapbooking Workshop

A family activity for 5-10 year olds accompanied by one adult.

We will explore a variety of materials and basic techniques, which will stimulate creativity and imagination, enabling participants to create their own unique piece of either a collage or a scrapbook's first page! Bring along your favourite printed photographs or cut out from magazines, a poem, or any other special little thing you would like to be on your creation. We will use buttons, feathers, natural items (eg. wood, flowers, leaves), coloured cards, fabrics, and more. Please be aware that the nature of this activity means a little mess should be expected, so wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Facilitated by Bea Maccarrone at The Rickyard, 2.30-4.30 pm, Sunday 8th Sept

Dates/Times:

Sat 7th - Photowalk with Brig and Moxey 1-2.30pm
Sun 8th – Bea, scrapbooks/collage drop in between 2-4pm – ages 5-10, must be accompanied by one adult.
Sat 14th – Jonny: Longing for Home – 4pm
Ongoing throughout the exhibition – Ray’s Instagram event


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.
