Strand Gallery - October 2011
THE STRAND Gallery has three exhibitions scheduled for October 2011.
Arthur Maderson: Paintings, in association with Solo Arte – October 4 to October 8.
Arthur Maderson, whose credits include winning the Anne Berry Award and the Cornellisen Award, is increasingly recognised as being a leading exponent of contemporary Impressionism.
Recognising his roots that reach out beyond Monet to the Book of Kells and Gothic stained glass, in this sense his aims are those of Cezanne, which is to convert our experience of momentary sensations into something lasting, thoughtful and timeless.
Maderson is a previous exhibitor of both the Royal Academy and the Royal West of England Academy.
Driven Creativity Competition 2011, in partnership with G-Technology – October 11 to October 15.
G-Technology’s Driven Creativity exhibition features winning entries from The Competition For Driven Creatives including work from filmmakers, photographers and musicians from all over Europe.
Unlike other creative competitions, work was judged not just for aesthetic qualities but also for the invention and drive that went into creating it – the late nights, harsh environments and obstacles that artists overcame to produce remarkable results.
This exhibition will feature at The Strand Gallery, Janine Bean Gallery in Berlin and Ofr in Paris with one overall winner to be announced.
London Independent Photography (LIP) – October 18 to October 29.
London Independent Photography (LIP) is a London based group of over 600 photographers. The work of LIP is based in the view that photographic images can mirror the personal experiences and feelings of the photographer and that making them can be a means to personal growth.
This year the annual exhibition, now in its 23rd year, received over 670 prints and were judged by external selectors Bridget Coaker (Picture Editor at the Guardian and the Observer) and Mick Williamson (Head of Photography at the London Metropolitan University).
