Islington Exhibits with Natasha Bhatia and Sybil Aadelaja

What a great event this is "An annual initiative to unlock venues across Islington and give artists and craft people a space to display their work.

Over 100 emerging and established artists are taking part this year, presenting solo and group shows in unusual spaces, public buildings and commercial venues."

Individual exhibitions will take place in various venues across Islington between 15-31 July 2013.

We are lucky to be hosting 2 artists and showcasing their very different work.  On Thursday 12th July Artist Sybil Aadelaja held the opening of her first solo show  "Hearing Voices" 

The Funkie People 
Funkie People- 
From that other sphere 
not so far not so near 
Just here before me 
I see them 
Heads of light 
Shadowing, illuminating 
Accompanying our lives 
they have lived our former lives 
They speak to me 
Not angels, but almost 
One minute by my side 
Then suddenly standing there! 
No wings, but the ability to move 
as fast as light 
Our precursors, 
Our former selves 
Funkie People.

It was a fun and successful evening thanks to everyone who came!

We are also delighted that Natasha Bhatia approached us to show her striking work - I particularly love the  "Urban Fabric" photographs, they have a tactile and layered quality both visually and poetically.

The photographs look stunning in our Window and we are delighted at the response - the feedback has been wonderful and the sales good -
