No time today, Art Is For Life, ART IS FOR LIFE: NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS (The Return)
We’re getting toward that dangerous time again, that time where galleries fill up with tinsel and mulled wine, and as Malcolm McLaren once almost certainly said, “why the hell not?” Because it sucks, all these damn galleries with their mince pies and mulled wine and come and buy your Christmas gifts, like the one next door to us looking like Selfridges at Christmas, is that what you want?
From First Thursday 6th of December, until close of play 5pm on 23rd December, we will be holding an AFFORDABLE ART EVENT called ART IS FOR LIFE: NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS (The Return) at CULTIVATE, VYNER STREET
The event will also double as a Cultivate gallery fundraiser and aid our on-going battle to pay the rent and keep an artist run space open in the middle of Vyner Street. 20% of all money from sales will go to Cultivate, the rest to the artist who’s work you hopefully come along and buy as Christmas gifts, but hey, remember, art is for life, not just Christmas, And as someone else if the street said last year, “don’t buy crap this Christmas, buy art”.
We’ll have (mostly) smaller pieces pf art on our walls, priced from as little as £5 to no more than £500. Of course this won’t all be about buying and selling, once again this is first and foremost a gallery exhibition with a salon style hang of carefully selected art for you to just come along and enjoy. No Christmas art, just art that you might like to give at Christmas, just some carefully selected art and artists you might like to spend time in our gallery exploring…. We expect the show and the art on the walls to be constantly changing throughout the month…
