Eighty shows, events and such, two and a quarter years of non-stop cultivation on the corner, far too many artists to count right now, and tomorrow, it all stops.
Sunday December 8th is the last day of us using the space in the way we have for the last twenty-seven months. Cultivate Vyner Street, as an (informal) formal art gallery, comes to an end tomorrow at 6pm.
No more formal exhibitions, no more group shows, solo shows, no more artist calls – time for a beautiful evolution on our corner half way down the constantly changing thing that is Vyner Street.
From December 9th the space known as Cultivate will be used as a full time art space by a (rather diverse) group of nine working artists. The white brick walls will be divided, ten spaces, nine of which will be used by nine artists as a permanent place to show our art. The nine of us will take turns to work in the space, the space will be open, as it has been as Cultivate from Thursday to Sunday,.11.30am until 6pm. The walls will be alive with our art, and as always, the door open so people can just walk in and see what we have on the walls and such. At least one of the nine of us will be taking a turn to work in the space in some way during open hours.
No more formal exhibitions, titled shows, just nine artists sharing a space and showing an evolving collection of our work. The tenth space will feature work from a guest artist, or maybe artists. The guest space will be refreshed every two weeks (so we can carry on with our now established tradition of introducing new exciting artists)
Thanks to everyone who has visited, supported, Joined in, and been involved in Cultivate Vyner Street over the last two and a bit (mostly brilliant, often frustrating, always rewarding) years, time to evolve the space and work in a different way.
