Latest exhibitions news

Our customers have been involved in lots of shows over the summer and now into Autumn, see what they've been up to below:

ALICE BROWNE12 September – 11 December 2011
Jerwood Project Space at Café 171, Jerwood Space

This exhibition brings together a new body of work by London-based artist Alice Browne. Browne’s paintings are built up from layers of colour which, due to way they are loosely applied, chart the different stages of their production. From these layers of paint awkward spaces and shapes emerge in which, as the artist describes, ‘the material presence deliberately undermines the space created: colours and brushwork wrestle for prominence over form’.

 12 September – 11 December 2011
Jerwood Space, 171 Union St, SE1 0LN
Opening Times: Mon - Fri 10am – 5pm, Sat 10am – 3pm;
Closed Bank Holidays, Admission: Free
Nearest tube: Southwark, London Bridge or Borough
