This autumn, the Stone Space gallery has teamed up with CreativeBloc and will host a series of exhibitions by CreativeBloc members. These shows will be curated by Sadie Jane Smedhurst under the banner ‘CreativeBloc presents…’
CreativeBloc is a collective of local artists founded by Elliott Ashton and Sadie Jane Smedhurst. Its mission is “to bring together creative folk across a multitude of disciplines to tame the elusive inspiration and together use her force to inspire and create, accessible art for all”. Earlier this year they organised a very successful group show Hibernacula, in association with Transport for London at their abandoned premises Mind The Gap at Leystonstone underground station. They also used the same premises during the Leytonstone Arts Trail.
The first CreativeBloc show in the ‘CreativeBloc presents…’ series is by Sarah Lowe and runs from 18 September to 2 October 2014.
Sarah is a local artist who has lived in the fringes of the East End for the last 20 years. She loves both the suburban and more edgy urban mix that comes from living on the outskirts of a city like London and much of her work has become a reflection of these contrasts. She has sold work both locally and internationally and over the last 10 years has taken on commissions for large abstract canvasses. This is her first solo show in Leytonstone.
The private view is on Thursday 25 September from 6.30 to 8.30pm.
