I’ve had a great time with my first solo show at Matthews Yard during August and it will be sad to take the pictures down and leave the space empty on Monday. It’s only empty for a few days though as artists from the Club Soda disability arts group will be setting up their show on the 8th September and if it’s half as good as the work they’ve had up at Croydon library it will be well worth seeing.
Meanwhile my remaining paintings of Croydon won’t be staying wrapped up for long, many of them will be winging their way over to the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane as I take part in my second New Artists Fair. Opening with a Friday night party on 5th September, 6-9pm, and running over the weekend it’s a great chance to see some new artistic talent.
Last year I really enjoyed Stephanie Ho with her crowds of little people in blank landscapes and Sarah Fosse looks to have great colours in her work and I can’t wait to see them for real. Tolu Magbagbeola’s work looks fascinating in the latest New Artists Fair blog entry, it’s his first show so hopefully it will be successful for him.
Friday will be a busy night and a great party but for anyone who wants a quieter look round and a chance for an in-depth chat with the artists should come on Sat or Sun 12-6pm when the crowds will be thinner.
