You are invited to the Monday 3rd Sept Preview of Jon George’s Exhibition
We hope you will be able to join us this coming Monday eve for the final preview event of this season. This is to showcase the exhibition of drawings and paintings by Jon George that will be in the gallery from 4th to 29th September. Read more about Jon George and his exhibition here.
The evening will include an improvised performance by well known local musician, Barry Lim, in conversation with the exhibiting artist, Jon George, in which they will explore the stories of Jon’s travels and his art, with original musical compositions by Barry. The two have performed this improvised format for a previous event, entitled ‘Africa on a Bike and other Journeys,’ at Chisenhale Studios before an appreciative audience.
While Jon is with us, he is running a 5 day workshop in Egg Tempera Painting from Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th September. There are still a couple of places left if you want to join that course and learn about this fascinating historic method of painting. Read more about the course here. The work from the participants of this course will be exhibited alongside Jon’s.
The conversation with Jon and Barry will be followed by performances from the regular Monday night acoustic folk musicians.
This is the last of the preview evenings for the season, as we do not have any guest exhibitions in the Autumn and Winter. The programme will start up again next April.
