Exhibitions, Friends of the Earth and Leytonstone Art Trail
I had some work in the recent exhibition about climate change, that Helen Porter of Friends of the Earth organised at the Changing Room Gallery last week. It was a good mixed show, with prints, photography, painting and mixed media pieces. I showed 2 photographic works, and the series of work done with Rianna and friends that was in the DecarbonART exhibition at City Hall recently.
I also put up some work in an exhibition as part of the new Leytonstone Art Trail a few days ago. It is a group show of members of the Arts Club and there is a good mix of work there.
It is a new addition to the Leytonstone festival and a few of the shops and offices are showing work and a few artists are showing work in their studios and home, like in the much bigger E17 Art Trail.
The exhibition is at One Stop Shop (Business Centre) 841 Leytonstone High Road,E11 1HH and will be up a bit longer than the rest of the Art Trail which finishes on 13th July.
I really liked Timothy Kraemers photographs of the demolition of a tower block in Hackney. He does a great calendar flip book of the demolition. Shirley Pountney has a couple of strong earth paintings too and Alke Schmidt has her great shrine to consummerism, supermarkets and fast food in the window.
