Archived entries for electric angel gallery
the next exhibition in our tiny gallery space -and probably the last of this year- is an installation by local ceramicist iona calvert. we like to surprise with our exhibitions at electric angel and didn’t want to give too much away with the publicity, hence charlotte and i found ourselves down by the harbour last week creating fish skin lettering for the invites. the title should give you a clue as to what to expect though – it’s going to be rather special albeit another technical challenge for our gallery space. but if it was easy it’d be no fun would it?
the preview is this friday 7-9pm, we’ve timed it so you can visit the ‘making a mark’ preview at scarborough art gallery first which opens at 5. there’s so many exhibition previews in scarborough these days that double-headers are becoming the norm. please do pop along.
a postcard to is the current exhibition in our tiny gallery space. curated by dan whinney, the exhibition has been prompted by the twinning of hackney and scarborough for the 2012 olympic games.
little else seemed to be happening so dan took the initiative to put some of the his artist friends in the london borough in touch with those locally and encouraged them to start sending postcards to each other. the works on display are a result of that creative exchange and explore the character of both places through photography, prints, sculpture and collage by five different artists.
the exhibition has already proved to be one the most popular we’ve hosted. it runs until 14 september
