The latest Cultivate Evolved newsletter went out to our mailing list tonight, for those not on the mailing list, here;s what went out…..
Things things things, lots of evolving things to tell you about, as busy as ever at the Evolved art space that is Cultivate. Cut to the chase, here’s what’s going down over the next few weeks at Cultivate Evolved…..
The first FIRST SATURDAY
This Saturday March 1st sees the first ever Vyner Street FIRST SATURDAYS event take place. Galleries, studios, cafes and spaces open up and down the street all day from 10am until 11pm – art, DJs, Records stalls, film screenings, Textile techniques, live music, food, things going on at many of the galleries, spaces and such, including things at the new Limewharf creative hub. There’s a new show at the big Wilkinson space, things happening at 4Cose, Wayward and more.
We Cultivate artists will be in residence all day, painting, printing and, well come and see, we’ll be there from early morning until late evening, All my recent 2014 canvas pieces will on sale at just £10 each for just one day, lots of £1 cardboard pieces, freshly painted vinyl and live painting of Guinness portraits for sale in return for a Guinness from the pub over the road, at some point I might need to paint a cheese roll (me being SEAN WORRALL). We don’t know yet what Julia will make? Jess is joining in. We have work ork on view (and on sale) from GARETH MORGAN, EMMA HARVEY, KATRINE STOREBO, CHRIS PAUL GODBER, JESSICA BALLANTYNE and JULIA MADDISON plus our guest artist for that period will be South London painter ANGELIQUE HARTIGAN with some of her East London studies. Promises to be an exciting creative day, the first First Saturday, if it works then we’ll do it every month, come get involved, come explore the creativity of the street, the artists and designers and the many spaces.
We have new in-house artists joining us from March 6th, we welcome back recent guests QUIET BRITISH ACCENT as full-time Cultivate artists – “Quiet British Accent are art and design duo Jason Gale and Sharon Gale. The couple like to play with the visual language of popular sporting culture across textiles, stencils, mixed media and low tech printing techniques”. We also welcome M.O.B (back) to our creative fold, more about Modes Of Being as things evolve – – who knows what we’ll get – might include a trumpet, a voice, a photo, a painting, a sculpture, a discussion? We say goodbye to Katrine, Chris and Genevieve and thanks them for their contributions over the last three months.
