INTERRUPTIONS
8-13 June 2021

​Featuring a diverse range of work encompassing painting, sculpture, installation, video and printmaking, this exhibition has been conceived and implemented by 11 artists who have all taken part in the Fine Art Mentoring course run by Erika Winstone at Morley College.

Participating Artists:
Cass Breen, Louise Hardy, Nell Martin, Bernadette Enright,
Katherine Rose, Anjum Moon, Abigail Elverd, Terry Barber,
Helen Pavli, Yasmin Noorbakhsh, Catherine James.

The course aims to form a bridge between college and gaining confidence through forging connections and a sense of community to practise and thrive as independent artists. An important part of this journey involves working together to independently organise a group exhibition. This year has been especially challenging in many ways and the show has been postponed twice since September due to lockdowns. However, the success is partly due to how the mentees have continued supporting each other through online meetings some ten months after finishing the course.

Erika Winstone, who has curated the exhibition, comments: ‘The work in this show demonstrates the rich achievements of each artist individually, as well as the benefits of alternative models of learning to increase access to a peer group inclusive of a wide range of histories, background and experience. I congratulate each mentee on this rich, thought-provoking and exciting exhibition.

‘I look forward to seeing their continuing journeys as artists and further work in a second online show in July.

‘Thanks to Terry Barber for her evite design and masterminding of the catalogue, and to Catherine James for designing the online exhibition. Also very special thanks to the fantastic input of the following visiting artists for their invaluable contributions: Rosalind Davis, Justin Hibbs, Daniel Howard-Birt, Sara Knowland, Barbara Nicholls, Anne Ryan and Susan Sluglett.’

Opening hours:
Tue-Sat 12-7pm
Sun 10:30am - 4pm
Measures will be in place following government Covid-secure guidance.

The online exhibition launches on 6 July; see the group’s Instagram page for further details and also any changes to arrangements to comply with latest government advice: @mfam.interruptions

Are Friends Electric – Studies in Neon
The exhibition that never was now is
21-27 June 2021
Private View: Thurs 24 June 6-9pm

​In 2019 Print artists Ricardo Corte and Jonathan Lawes scouted Instagram to find kindred spirits they could bring together for a group show themed loosely though the use of bold, neon, fluorescent colour schemes. In selecting on the work not the names they were able to gather a diverse collection of 13 strangers, some established artists some brand new.
Their work the only judging factor. Getting them all to contribute, communicate and collaborate was no mean achievement but it happened with Instagram and WhatsApp taking the strain.

The exhibition was planned for March 2020. A lot of the artists due to meet for the first-time face to face, and then Covid happened. Like everything else in the world, the exhibition was cancelled *in literally the first week of the first ever lockdown.

The exhibition was up but the doors were locked, when they reopened in the summer the schedule of the gallery was adjusted and Are Friends Electric removed. The show that never really happened.

If you have an exhibition that nobody sees did it happen? It did but didn’t, you get it yeah?

Fast forward – the year passes, lockdowns come and go, and the exhibition which had been given up on has now been resurrected, a second life presented to it by the Espacio Gallery.

Also a serendipitous twist of fate the timing of the exhibition will coincide with the UK returning to normality (if you believe the current government) the exhibition neatly bookending covid in the UK.

So, Are Friends Electric is back for 2021 with a few line-up changes, a lot has happened over the last 12 months but the neon show must go on.

The new roster still includes:
@amy_gardner_artist_ @mistermarcjones @iamcyanblue
@jonathanlawes @montezmakes @vpattersongraphicarts
@sonofafoxx @keldastorm @art_by_villain with the excellent new additions of @donklondon @oli.fowlerart & @mew.welch

There will be wall to wall colour, fluro and neon to melt your eyes and warm your hands. It’s gonna be a bright summer, best wear your shades

From the Western Isles to the East End
​24 May - 5 June 2021
‘From the Western Isles to the East End.’

Four artists living on the island of North Uist are bringing their exhibition ‘Hebridean Spaces’ (‘Leirsinn nan Eilean’) to the Espacio Gallery in Shoreditch.

North Uist is one of the islands in the remote Outer Hebridean archipelago. It’s dominated by water - both by the surrounding sea and by a myriad of freshwater lochs, and also by wide open skies. It’s very varied topographically, with an ancient, rocky, peat and heather clad interior, and a fertile green rim around the coasts, fringed with sandy beaches.

The island lies in the path of Atlantic low pressure systems, and is a place of dynamic weather and wind.

It’s both a challenging and rewarding place to live; our exhibition will bring an impression of this to the very contrasting environment of London. This will be through the experience of four artists inspired by the same place, but using very different and engaging approaches to express this.

The four artists are:

Marnie Keltie - painting
“My current work is rooted in the beach environment near where I live. It’s my attempt to express both the sense of exposure experienced on the Atlantic shore, and the changing worlds created and recreated on the surface of the beach by the endless rhythm of the tide.”

Corinna Krause - bookbinding
“I explore my relationship with the environment surrounding me by incorporating island - specific materials such as sand, netting, fish farm overalls and creel hooks into my book structures and by experimenting with long established binding techniques to find new ways of expression.”

Fiona Pearson - painting & printmaking
“Hurled through with birds...Rilke.
I make abstract paintings in response to the significant spaces in the island’s land and sky.”

Fergus Granville - sculpture / assemblage
“Either co-created with the sea or inspired by found objects, sometimes a blend of natural history and art.”

In 2019 this same group took an exhibition to the Dundas St. Gallery in Edinburgh.
This was very well received and reviewed; Art critic Duncan MacMillan awarded the exhibition four stars in ‘The Scotsman’.

We then decided to aim for an exhibition in London, and this is our third attempt; dates in February and April have already been postponed due to the pandemic.

Bring the inside, outside
YardArt brings art for outdoor living to Espacio Gallery
18-23 May 2021

Bringing their own unique outdoor artwork to Central London YardArt UK takes over the Espacio Gallery from 18-23 May 2021.

The exhibition sees artwork, illustrations, designs and limited editions from Banksy, Rene Gruau, Spencer Rienhard, Jess Yelland, Charlotte Clemence & Jane Ruggerio making the galleries walls come alive in an eclectic mix of colour and style with one thing in mind - to bring the inside out!

With gardens becoming our extra ‘rooms’ to relax or entertain in, traditionally the emphasis has always been on the reliance on planting and hard landscaping elements to make an impression. YardArt seeks to challenge this concept with their unique outdoor wall Art providing an extra dimension to patios, terraces, balconies and outdoor spaces.

Completely weather-proof and durable, all of the works in the exhibition are digitally printed with UV protected weather proof colour fast inks and applied to a high quality outdoor grade 5mm acrylic, using YardArt’s state of the art print technology, ensuring they are waterproof, fade proof and long lasting in all weathers.
Prices range from £295 -£2k+

Exhibition Highlights:
‘Heart Boy’ - Banksy
Commissioned in conjunction with the Brandler Galleries, to celebrate the ‘Moments’ Street Art Exhibition (Bury St. Edmunds). Each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the Brandler Galleries. The ‘Cheshire’ edition features a rusty iron frame which is printed onto the artwork to enhance the 3D nature of the piece.

'Heart Boy' was originally painted on a 7-foot wall in Goswell Road, Islington by the artist but the demolition of the building in 2009 led to the removal and conservation of the mural. The mural was first showcased at Amsterdam’s Moco Museum and its first UK showing will be at the ‘Moments’ exhibition.

John Brandler, owner of Brandler Galleries, owner of the original mural and co-associate of the ‘Moments’ exhibition has collaborated with YardArt to ensure a faithful reproduction of the artist’s original work.
From £2,000 upwards. Limited edition of 25.

Official launch of the René Gruau Runway Fashion Collection
Five designs which showcase the fashion illustrator whose distinctive portrayals of haute couture design in the 1940s and 50s made him synonymous with the “New Look” revolution.
​From £750 - Limited Edition of 50 pieces per design.

About YardArt’s artwork
All YardArt’s artwork is completely weather-proof and durable, with all of the designs digitally printed with UV protected weather proof colour fast inks and applied to a high quality outdoor grade 5mm acrylic, using YardArt’s state of the art print technology - ensuring they are waterproof, fade proof and long lasting in all weathers.

Suitable for both outdoor spaces and areas in the home where there is a lot of moisture (i.e. bathrooms) they can be mounted to walls or fences for maximum impact. Installing onto a fence,brick or concrete wall could not be easier, with a range of architectural bolts to suit the design of your choice.
