 After a very successful exhibition there last year, Islington Art Society are returning to the Espaccio gallery for their Summer Show again in June. The professional style of the gallery itself and the buzz of the Brick Lane area made for an exciting show in 2016 and members were very keen to return.

Once again there will be a wide range of prints, paintings, multi-media, ceramics, sculpture , glass, photographs and more, in a show that is always central for everyone taking part and which promises to be as diverse and stimulating as ever. A special feature this year will be a wall section with a Light and Shade theme, made with works that are ready to purchase and take away on the spot.

The show is on at the Espaccio, 159 Bethnal Green Road, from Monday June 12th – 25th 2017.

The Hidden Layers exhibition showcases artworks by four individual artists. While each artist explores his/her own unique personality, some commonalities of interest may be discerned. How many layers are hidden in each finished piece? How do we describe those layers? What are the differing variables between each artist’s work? What are their commonalities? Do we all express ourselves, our thoughts and emotions, through the objects that we create? 
Each painting, sculpture, collage or print is an expression of the artist’s own journey through a creation process which manifests through the application of layers of paint, marks, variety of textures, shapes or forms, into a work of art.
Four different artists – four unique expressions of an individual’s state of mind, a perception of his/her world via a landscape or the human body. By bringing together a mix of different mediums, styles and techniques, this exhibition promises to be a fascinating journey that explores the subject of hidden layers from many angles. 
In Hidden Layers, the focus is shifted to you as an observer to engage with the finished piece and discover for yourself the layers  within the objects.

The artists exhibiting in this show:
Pam Foley – sculptor
Bozena Czyz – painter
Judith Moule – printmaker /painter
Michal Cabaj – painter

” The colour red grabs your attention; it fascinates and captivates.
The ‘Seeing Red’ exhibition, showing for two weeks at Espacio Gallery (31 January – 12 February), fills the two floors of the large beautiful space with glowing colour.  Whether scarlet, crimson, maroon, vermilion, berry, ruby, rose, burgundy, carmine, brick, or cerise – red is both satisfying and exciting. The strong feelings suggested by the colour red – passionate love, blood and anger – are always stimulating!
 Artists understand colour and use it to great advantage – as Matisse famously said: “A thimble full of red is redder than a bucketful.” The 18 colourist artists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways to see the colour red. Red can boost your energy, it exudes confidence and is life-affirming, so this show is a great place to visit in the middle of a dreary London winter.”

 

The artists exhibiting in ‘Seeing Red’ are: John Adams, Terry Beard, Tania Beaumont, Liz Brown, Paul Butler, Christine Calow, Laurence Cammas, Julie Caves, Bozena Czyz, Kanwal Dhaliwal, Zelda Eady, Laura Gompertz, Raina Goran, Sally Grumbridge, Philip Leevers, Laura New, Tina Viljoen, and Cary Whitworth.

“LAND MARKS presents a selected group of eleven artists who explore their individual relationships and approaches to contemporary urban and rural landscape.Expressive and varied mark making is a vital tool for the artist, demonstrated in this wide-ranging exhibition. Swift, considered, broad, energetic, graphic, thick, transparent, hard-edged, layered, textured; all these marks are used to create works which range from figurative to pure abstract. The marks are as individual as the artists themselves.LAND MARKS shows the artists’ diverse responses to the environment: recollection of personal experiences, appreciation of beauty, resonance with inner consciousness, reflections of states of mind; from the big picture to small elements within it.

The works range from painting and sculpture to a variety of printing techniques, including etching, screen print and monoprint.”

John Adams, Helen Benson, Margaret Crutchley, Bozena Czyz, Raina Goran, El Jordan, Judith Moule, Clive Patterson, Jenny Price, Jim Vernon, Cary Whitworth
