Pitzhanger Manor exhibition: Es Devlin - Memory Palace

  • Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery (map)

The newly restored Pitzhanger Gallery has marked its place as a major cultural venue. With the second exhibition featuring a 18-metre-wide sculpture by Es Devlin.

“Interdisciplinary artist Es Devlin OBE is known for her ambitious sculptures and environments across art, theatre and music.

In this new large-scale work, commissioned by Pitzhanger, visitors will be immersed within a vast chronological landscape mapping pivotal shifts in human perspective, from the southern African caves in which humans made their first drawings, to the study in Switzerland where the world wide web was conceived.

The 18-metre-wide sculpture will physically fill the entire gallery space, with mirrored planes multiplying its dimensions to enable a reimagining of time and space.”

David Wiseman, 'By the River'

Landscape painter David Wiseman presents a solo show of work inspired by the dancing light and movement of Pitshanger riverside scenes.

In ‘By the River’, open at For Arts Sake to October 20, the Ealing-based artist captures the shifting moods and seasons of his local landscape, as well as idyllic spots in Devon, Wales and beyond. The result is a captivating collection of playful, fluid paintings on paper and canvas.

Many of the works on display are based on the River Brent, which runs through Pitshanger Park surrounded by trees. “All those with Pitshanger in their titles are inspired by this beautiful little river,” he says. "I am there very often; I particularly like the contrast between the tangled wooded riverbank and the ever-changing waters.”

Plus - a date for your diaries - David will be in the gallery later this month for a 'Meet the Artist' afternoon. Drop by for drinks, a nibble or two and the chance to discover more about David's lovely, lyrical landscapes. Head to For Arts Sake on:

'A Printmaker's London'

For Arts Sake gallery is thrilled to announce one of the biggest ever group shows of original prints devoted to the capital.

‘A Printmaker’s London’ features never-before-seen new works from 60 of the leading contemporary British printmakers, covering the full breadth of techniques from linocut to screenprint, woodcut, etching and lithograph.

Each printmaker has chosen his or her own twist on the city, and the finished works capture London in all its depth and variety – from its architectural landmarks to icons such as the Routemaster and idyllic visions of its green spaces and waterways.

There are more esoteric glimpses of its history and character, too, from Sonia Rollo’s canine ‘East End Boy and West End Girl’ to Anna Marrow’s celebration of an Ealing Studios legend.

Exhibiting artists include Gail Brodholt, Gerry Baptist, Paul Catherall, John Duffin, Bonnie and Clyde, Mychael Barratt, Anna Marrow, Sophie Layton, Trevor Price, Irene Scheinmann, Martin Grover and many more.

All of the prints are being created exclusively for the exhibition and, for the duration of the show, will only be available from For Arts Sake.

Gallery director Brian Davis says: “We are very excited to present this unique show. It’s possible that there has never been an occasion when so many artists have come together to present their interpretation of London, and we have been blown away by the sheer breadth and beauty of the prints.”

Highlights include a new linocut of Berthold Lubetkin’s modernist Penguin Pool at London Zoo by celebrated printmaker Paul Catherall. Paul is renowned for his clean, bold renditions of the capital’s Brutalist and modernist landmarks.

Painter and printmaker Tim Southall’s ‘A Tale of London’ is an epic rendition of the High Middle Ages via copper plate etching. It takes in characters from Dick Whittington to King Harold, leading to the emerging city dominated by the Tower of London.

Paul Cleden captures the magic of London’s theatreland with his linocut ‘A Gleaming Performance’. Screenprint artist Emma Reynolds summons Richmond Park and its deer on a hot and hazy summer day, while Clare Halifax’s silkscreen print depicts Kew’s iconic glasshouse, in ‘From Me to Kew’.

The Bond Street gallery will also be hosting a series of ‘Meet the Artist’ weekends, where many of the exhibiting artists will be talking through their methods and inspirations over a glass of wine and a guided preview of ‘A Printmaker’s London’.

You can see the progress of the prints as they unfold by following the hashtag #APrintmakersLondon on Instagram and Twitter. The exhibition is free, with all pieces available to buy.

#MyEaling Children's Art Exhibition

A very special exhibition celebrating Ealing and its budding young artists is running throughout the summer at Bond Street gallery For Arts Sake.

It comes after the gallery launched a competition asking local kids and young people aged 3-16 to submit pictures of their favourite bits of Ealing, for the chance to star in the #MyEaling show.

Now the winners have been revealed and the exhibition is open until August 25. Nearly 40 artworks have been picked to be framed and hung on the wall, while two overall winners and their runners-up take pride of place in the gallery window.

In the 3-9-year old category the winner is Sophie Choi, 8, with her glorious painting of Walpole Park’s pond and fountain.

In second place is Eliza McDonald, 9, whose splendid mixed media artwork captures ‘The Family’ sculpture (by Welsh artist Robert Thomas) in the Broadway Shopping Centre.

In the 10-16-year-old category the winner is Romy Cornec, 12, with her stunning collage and mixed media vision of Walpole Park’s stone bridge. In second place is Grace Simpson, 11, who celebrates Ealing wildlife with her beautiful collaged butterfly backed by a map of the borough.

The four young artists win gift vouchers to spend at the gallery as well as a starring spot in the gallery window throughout the summer.

For Arts Sake director Brian Davis said: "We have been thrilled by the sheer number of stunning entries, showcasing everything from painting to drawing, collage to pastels, and celebrating the full breadth and beauty of Ealing. It's wonderful to see how inspired the children are by their local area."

He added: "Picking the overall winners has been extraordinarily tough, but we are delighted to say that all of the submitted works will be on show - we felt none should go unrewarded or unseen." Alongside the framed works, nearly 60 unframed pictures have been specially mounted and will be available to view in browsers.

The exhibition, #MyEaling, is open in the For Arts Sake lower gallery for the duration of the summer to August 25. So do pop by and enjoy this gorgeous celebration of our neighbourhood and its budding young talent.

Open 10am – 3pm Daily

Cost Free Public Admission

The Monochrome format simplifies and strengthens our photographs. We draw attention to what caught our eye. We highlight patterns of light and shadow, or use light falling across a surface to emphasise grainy textures. An effective monochrome is reliant on its composition. A careful arrangement of shapes, lines, textures and patterns can transform your photograph.

The photographers featured in this exhibition have utilised the many benefits offered by monochrome photography to produce a very strong, creative and touching set of images.

MONOCHROME is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.

Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change.

Lovers Eye

"Would you like to dip your toes into renaissance painting for an afternoon? What to learn a bit about the tradition of Lover's eye paintings, as well and have a go at immortalizing your very own love? Then why not join our “Paint your very own Lover's Eye” at TeaDarling in Acton!

It will be a grand afternoon in good company, full of cake and art. You will, through hands on brush-wilding, learn a bit about the basic materials and techniques of real renaissance painting. Never held a brush before? Not to fear, this workshop will be suited for all adult skill-levels, practised as well as complete novices and at the end you should have your very own miniature to bring home. You just have to decide who to paint! Be it man or beast, your lover, your mum, your dog, cat or canary..maybe even your self as a gift to a lover. All you need to do is bring a good high resolution photo of the eye of your beloved and we will provide the rest:) Who knows perhaps there is a brand new hobby waiting for you at the end of it.

The workshop will be run by award-winning Danish artist Anja Altenburg, who has exhibited her works all over the world. She has made it her mission to make traditional painting accessible to all and her goal is to show that our perception of the classical techniques is all but an illusion, it is neither difficult nor does it require a god given talent. Anyone can play along and with the right instructions, it will be come clear that is easier and even more forgiving than modern materials like acrylics. But most importantly she wants to show the world that classical painting can be fun!

Tempted? Then why not join us! The cost will be £25 including tuition, materials and tea. Spaces will be limited to ensure the quality of the workshop, so hurry up and contact Pam today! We cannot wait to meet you"

'Glitter Bunnies', Meet the Artists - Maria Rivans / Bonnie and Clyde / Amy Douglas

Celebrate the launch of the new exhibition, 'Glitter Bunnies', with an exclusive afternoon viewing at For Arts Sake.

Join the queens of contemporary British collage Maria Rivans, Bonnie and Clyde and subversive ceramics artist Amy Douglas over a glass of wine... and enjoy their stunning group show on its opening weekend.

From the subversive dreamscape meets Pop Art glamour of Rivans’ vintage Hollywood pin-ups to Bonnie and Clyde’s beautiful and bizarre urban psychogeography, 'Glitter Bunnies' fuses the stunning and the surreal.

Rivans and Bonnie and Clyde (aka the artist Steph Burnley) share a Brighton studio and a creative aesthetic that melds the painstaking, handcrafted art of collage with mixed media and the latest digital printing techniques. Both create work that challenges surface perfection and entices us to delve deeper into fantastical, immersive worlds.

They are south coast compatriots of ceramics restorer Douglas, whose radically reimagined Staffordshire figurines – ‘collaged porcelain’ – will also be on display.

This is a relaxed and informal event, which gives art fans the opportunity to find out a little more about the techniques and inspirations behind this exciting trio of artists' work.

'Glitter Bunnies'

The beautiful and the bizarre collide in Glitter Bunnies, a blockbuster new joint exhibition from queens of collage Maria Rivans and Bonnie and Clyde, and subversive ceramicist Amy Douglas.

From the dreamscape glamour of Rivans' vintage Hollywood pin-ups to Bonnie and Clyde's ice cream-hued scenes of imagined urban landscapes, this is a joyful celebration of pop culture - with a twist.

Completing the show is Amy Douglas, who re-configures (‘collages together’) broken ceramic figures to create extraordinary objects with radical new narratives.

All three artists create work that challenges surface perfection and entices us to delve deeper into fantastical, immersive worlds.

"There are lots of hidden political nods, and comments on my life and how I see the world we live in today," says Rivans, who cites a 1970s childhood spent soaking up TV and classic movies as key influences on her Pop Art aesthetic. "I'm highly influenced by sci-fi, philosophy and Hitchcock. I talk about life, love, the universe and continually question what it is to be a human living in this strange physical 3D reality.”

Adds Bonnie and Clyde (aka artist Steph Burnley): "I like to add real-life elements that aren't traditionally beautiful but I do find some kind of poetic beauty in them. I often use signage, symbols and words to inject some humour or political edge."

Douglas, who started creating anarchic pieces from broken Staffordshire figurines "for my own amusement", explains: "I just had the urge to do what one should not. Playing with scale and the wrong restoration brings a different dimension to the piece. Seamlessly done, it can trick the viewer to seem as if it were always there. It's about making people look twice."

The whimsical title is "a little much-needed joy in weighted social and political times". Continue Rivans: "It's apt as we all use some sort of glitter finishes in our work.” And in a light-hearted touch that will delight fans of kitsch, she has concealed a vintage bunny in five of her original, one-off collages.

On show, and on sale, will be a range of original, one-off collage pieces and limited edition silkscreen and gliclée prints, as well as Amy Douglas' gilded ceramics. Don't miss this glittering spring show!

The 4 Elements photography exhibition

Free Public Admission

The Ancient Greeks were first to believe that all ‘matter’ was composed of just 4 elements: earth, water, air and fire. Whilst understanding has progressed since then with the discovery of the periodic table, they were long-held beliefs, going back to ancient civilisations.

The images on display in this exhibition present the original Four Elements in all their glory. They successfully convey the life sustaining powers to be found in earth, water, air and fire and the importance of these elements for life on Earth.

THE 4 ELEMENTS is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.

Pitzhanger Manor opening exhibition: Anish Kapoor

  • Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The newly restored Pitzhanger Gallery has marked its place as a major cultural venue, with the inaugural exhibition featuring a series of sculptures by Anish Kapoor.

Photographs can’t do this series of curving and disorientating mirrored sculptures justice. The clarity and immersive nature of the dizzying pieces, literally turn the newly restored setting on its head.

The Gallery was good before, it’s world-class now! Congratulations to everyone who’s been involved in the entire project. It really is a showstopper and has added yet another jewel to our mighty suburban Queen’s crown.

Anish Kapoor (b.1954 in Mumbai) has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s. One of the most influential sculptors of his generation, his invention of sculptural language and form has constantly challenged the way we view the world. Large-scale commissions include Marsyas (2002), for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Leviathan at the Grand Palais, as part of Monumenta (2011) and Orbit (2012) at the Queen Elizabeth Park London.

Anish Kapoor, 16 March 2019 – 18 August 2019, Pitzhanger Gallery

Tickets for Anish Kapoor will be on sale from February 2019.
