Process and Preparation – 4 to 28 February 2016

Process and Preparation is intended to offer a tantalising glimpse of the wealth of work that will be on show around Leytonstone in July as part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail and provide an insight into the working methods of the artists taking part. The exhibition, which will include photography, animation, film, painting, printmaking and drawing, will present preparatory work alongside finished pieces to offer visitors the chance to view the varied techniques of experimentation and refinement employed by artists.
