This month we have got a seriously exciting selection of workshops and events for September. We have a new exhibition by Stephen Kenny at our Basement Gallery East, a Sardina workshop in Greenwich as part of the London Analogue Festival, a party and a special announcement for all you students out there. There is so much going on, you'd be mad to miss it all! Read on for full details.
Thursday, 5th September from 6-9pm @ EAST – First Thursday Exhibition: ‘Last Night I Sang Karaoke with Bill Murray’
Stephen Kenny is a letterpress designer and printer; he uses traditional printing methods and techniques using woodblock and letterpress type to create simple graphic posters and prints that celebrate all the subtle aesthetics of this medium. He is inspired by Victorian posters, the French Surrealists of the 1920s, contemporary music and literature.
Join us for the private view of this exhibition on September 5th as part of the First Thursdays event run by the Whitechapel Gallery. The exhibition runs from 5th – 30th September. All welcome!
