Kate's Christmas Knitmas by James Woodward

Today sees Brighton based Kate Jenkins pop up exhibition, 'Kate's Christmas Knitmas' open to the public. Kate's work is pretty incredible and this is one pop up I've been looking forward to for a while now.

Combining an artist’s eye for colour with a witty imagination and using her background in fashion and talent for design, Kate creates amazing, innovative crocheted pictures – each one an original. Kate’s philosophy that anything can be created from yarn as long as it is made with love, has been translated into successful exhibitions throughout the UK and USA, including a recent one at Liberty of London. Much of her inspiration comes from living here in Brighton.

The exhibition runs for one week only and will be open Tuesday to Saturday 10.30 to 6.00 and Sunday 11.00 to 5.00.

If you would like to use the space for an exhibition of your own, please contact us. The minimum hire period is one week and we're now taking bookings from March 2017 onwards.

Jenny and Liam Paint the Blues by James Woodward

Coming soon to 114 Church Street, we have ‘Jenny and Liam Paint the Blues’ a joint pop up exhibition of paintings by artists Jenny Mustill and Liam Buckley.

With strong and contrasting styles, the pair are united in a bold use of colour. Their pop up exhibition runs from the 8th to the 12th of November. 

Jenny is a Brighton based artist and maker who after a stint as as assistant for Damien Hirst set up her own creative business which currently operates from the Rodhus studios. She has recently returned to painting and will be showcasing a series of intricately hand painted geometric paintings, which enable to viewer to get 'lost in a sea of repetition’.

Liam is a modernist figurative painter based in London. His paintings often throw together unlikely pairings in his colourful depictions of significant characters and fictional events.

Check out their Facebook event for more details.

If you would like to use the space for a pop up of your own, please contact us. You can also view current availability here. We're now fully booked through to mid-March, but taking bookings from then onwards.

Lidia de Pedro - Ruinas Circulares by James Woodward

From November 22nd until the 26th, Lidia de Pedro will launch an exhibition at the 114 Church Street, exploring the progression of her work over the last 10 years through 100 pieces.

This forms a unique opportunity to see a collection of works created with different techniques and styles by an ever-evolving artist who has enjoyed success with multiple sold-out solo shows in the past.

Lidia’s thoughtful art is ripe with symbolism and iconoclastic imagery, tackling complex sociological topics with a dose of humour and sarcasm. Her unique blend of classicism and modernism has been described as vivid, warm and empathetic - yet also dark and hallucinatory. Having produced a large body of work over the last decade, she has regularly exhibited throughout the UK, including various solo shows and shared exhibits alongside internationally renowned artists such as Peter Blake, Modern Toss, Dan Baldwin and Pure Evil.

The exhibition will feature paintings, original sketches, prints and posters, both on display and for sale and will be open every day from 11am to 9pm, with opening events planned for the 22nd (11am - 1pm, tea & sweets and 6pm - 9pm, free drinks) and a closing party on the 26th from 6pm - 11pm.

For a full overview of Lidia’s work, you can visit lidiadepedro.com
