September News

Read on to keep up to date with the artists at the local Great Western Studios. This place has been going on for a while but will be moving down the road soon. Various artists work there and the variety of media, work and approach is impressive. It's no secret that the quality is there.


Neal Tait is currently exhibiting at White Cube, his show Les Toits de Parise shows paintings made over the last year that are diverse in theme, suggesting many fragmented narratives. The paintings in this exhibition, executed in both oil or acrylic and tempera on canvas are influenced by early Modernist painting. The show opened on 1st September and will run until 3rd October 2009.



Julie Goldsmith has been commissioned by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to take part in an Artist trail,Streetlight '09 opening with an Artist led walk through the trail on the 15th October. Julie says she regularly scours the neighbourhood for treasures and materials that she uses in her work. For this piece she has taken inspiration from the writer Wilkie Collins (now buried in Kensal cemetery), who walked the Notting Hill and Kensal streets with Charles Dickens at the turn of the 20th century. You will be able to view Julie's work in the window of The Cloth Shop, 290 Portobello Road from 15th October - 15th November.



Tamar Zaig's Costume Boutique have been invited by Covent Garden London to join in with the Fashion Fete to be held in the Covent Garden Piazza as part of London Fashion Week, 19th September 2009. They will be providing a dressing up box just for the fun of dressing up in fab costumes and having your picture taken, and there will also be exclusive accessories for sale.



Blue Curry will participate in a show held at Peacock Projects Art Space. Blue is one of 12 artists showing their work in the exhibition RIP 19th April 2009 'In Response to J G Ballard's work' curated by Iben la Cour. The show runs between 18th - 22nd September.




Katy Moran features in the article 'Ten painters you should meet' in the latest issue of 10 men magazine, out now.

Sarah Dwyer is currently showing her work in her most comprehensive exhibition in London so far at the Josh Lilley Gallery. The show is named Hands Stuffing a Mattress and runs until 8th October.



The Great Western Singers sang at the Big Chill Festivalearlier this summer performing their greatest hits set to great acclaim.
