Waltham Forest Arts Club hopes to find out tomorrow that we have been successful in our bid for a unit at Wood Street Market. If so we will create a pop up gallery space for Arts Club members.
There has been a very encouraging response to the call for interest in exhibiting in the space. Thank you for this. If the club has been successful there is quite a short time in which to set up and coordinate the exhibition programme.
We have had a provisional planning meeting in which we created a title for the exhibition programme – TURNAROUND.
The first phase of Turnaround will consist of 11 weekly exhibitions, starting 4th February and ending 28th April. The following is the list of exhibition dates. Note that the first exhibition is longer than one week and will be a group show featuring artworks within a size limit.
Turnaround 1 — 4th – 17th Feb’ (group show)
Turnaround 2 — 18th – 24th Feb’
Turnaround 3 — 25th – 2nd Mar’
Turnaround 4 — 3rd – 9th Mar’
Turnaround 5 — 10th – 16th Mar’
Turnaround 6 — 17th – 23rd Mar’
Turnaround 7 — 24th – 30th Mar’
Turnaround 8 — 31st – 6th Apr’
Turnaround 9 — 7th – 13th Apr’
Turnaround 10 — 14th – 20th Apr’
Turnaround 11 — 21st – 28th Apr’
We would like all the artists who expressed an interest in exhibiting in the space to opt for a ‘turnaround slot’, being aware that exhibiting involves a committment to invigilating or minding the exhibition.
We will contact arts club members with more details about participating in this project on confirmation of our success (or failure) in the bid.
