ONE YEAR ON THE CORNER, FIRST THURSDAY, FREE ART FRIDAY, GET YOUR SHOES ON..

CULTIVATE VYNER STREET – GALLERY NEWSLETTER No19 September 2012…

So we’ve been on our Vyner Street corner for one whole non-stop year or art and what we’d like to think have been 37 rather vibrant shows, exhibitions, events and such.  We opened our Greatest Hits retrospective celebration show last Thursday, big thanks to all who came to the opening or who have been in since.

GREATEST HITS - ZOE CROSSE, "ODE TO EVE"

GREATEST HITS – ZOE CROSSE, “ODE TO EVE”

GREATEST HITS is a group show fathering of some of the artists and art that has feature over the year, a reflection of our diversity and just a great big celebration of the art, the space and everything that has happened in the last year.  The Greatest Hits show goes on this First Thursday evening (the night when everything flows down  Vyner Street, about 15 galleries open, lots of drink, art, maybe a touch of music, street food…) and then continues for one more weekend.  Photos of the art in the show here – http://cultivatevynerstreet.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8380b674edc2998686ec5fa11&id=63785c1315&e=7178578b00  including Zoe Crosse’s giant Ode The Eve painting that is being auctioned during the show and currently has measly winning bid of just £35 on it…

And as part of the Greatest Hits celebrations we have another free art day

FREE ART FRIDAY

FREE ART FRIDAY

FREE ART FRIDAY – 3pm until 9pm, Friday 7th September, outside Cultivate gallery, Vyner Street.

As part of first year of Cultivate celebrations, the Greatest Hits retrospective, and one year of flying our flag down Vyner Street, we shall have another of our Free Art days. We’ve been doing them throughout the year at Cultivate, our artists have been leaving free art outside all year, or indeed inside…. Time for another free art day.

THE RULES:   from 3pm until 9pm on Friday September 7th, artists are invited to come down to the gallery and leave art outside,. People are invited to come along and take part and take the art. We ask people to respect this and only take one piece each. Some of the art will be right outside, some hidden around the street

Artists can bring art down to the gallery on the Thursday, before or during the evening of First Thursday, and leave it with us, or they ca njust come down on Friday and leave pieces on the day. No art will be put out on the street until Friday afternoon. In the event of bad weather, the free art will be inside the gallery,,,, The whole event will be filmed for a later video release This is all part of our ongoing two week CULTIVATE’S GREATEST HITS RETROSPECTIVE CELEBRATION  Last time we had about 30 artists and around 100 pieces of art, a complete cross section of styles and attitudes, don’t go dismissing this as just a street art thing – we had big elaborate canvas pieces, small piece on cardboard, artists making things on the night, people trading artist, a couple of times when things got a little heated over a desirable piece or two…

Free Art Friday then, come get involved… everyone is welcome to take part

And talking of getting involved, we still have an artist call for the SHOES group show – http://www.cultivatevynerstreet.com/CallforArtists.html
BIG BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR A GREAT YEAR OR CULTIVATION…
