#besmartaboutart networking is a monthly opportunity to meet artists, curators & other peers, to view exhibitions and spaces, and to expand knowledge - creative and professional alike.
In April 2017, we're heading to Gallery 286 near Earl's Court to see 'Illuminating Geometry', presenting works by Aphra Shemza and Delphin Ortiz, curated by the artists themselves.
We're delighted to head to Gallery 286, conceived in 1996 by Gallery Director Jonathan Ross and his wife Camilla Shivarg, a painter and sculptor. Presenting contemporary art in a private house setting, exhibition spaces include the ground floor gallery which provides a 'traditional gallery' feel, a more contemporary space in the basement, and a sculpture garden situated behind the building. Presenting between 8-10 exhibitions on an annual basis, Illuminating Geometry caught the eye of BSAA Founder Susan Mumford, noting the piece displayed on this event page, Totems 1.1-1.V, by Aphra Shemza.
About the Event:
With arrivals starting at 6.30pm, all attendees will be invited to browse the exhibition as well as talk with fellow visitors as well as Jonathan and Susan. Approximately half way through the event, Susan will facilitate a Q+A with the exhibiting artists, who will provide insight into the exhibition and their creative practices. This will be followed by a brief conversation with Susan, who wil provide three top networking tips. The event will finish at 8.30pm.
Note that arrivals are welcome at anytime during the event, between 6.30-8.30pm.
