On Our Way to Where?

30 September – 2 October 2016 (Art Licks Weekend)
Drawing Connections is a group of 19 artists who have chosen to work collaboratively through the medium of drawing as a way to challenge both their individual practices and fixed notions of what we might consider drawing. On Our Way to Where? marks a point, one year on in the group’s journey, offering the artists an opportunity to try out ideas in an experimental space open to the public. The exhibition encompasses a broad range of media to include site-specific work, wall drawings, sculptural pieces, film and animation alongside more traditional approaches.
Artists: Tony Blackmore, Camilla Brueton, Fiona Grady, Ruben Hale, Barry Haskins, Sharon McElroy, Claire Manning, Gill Newton, Esperanza Perkins, Paul Ridyard, Nicki Rolls, Zita Saffrette, Nicola Saunderson, Angelika Steiger.
Private View (Deptford X): Friday 23rd September 6-9pm. Private View (Art Licks Weekend): Thursday 29th 6-9pm. Artist’s talk: Saturday 1 October, 2-4pm
