Bubbles Through The Letterbox, 11th May – 26th June

11th May 2018 @ 8:00 am - 26th June 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Bubbles Through The Letterbox

A Studio Upstairs Exhibition, 11th May - 26th June

Private View

Thursday 17th May 6.00pm - 7.30pm

This exhibition by artists from Studio Upstairs showcases the creativity and artistic skills of Studio Members, team and volunteers at the Dalston Studio and is a visual example of its diversity.

‘As artists, we make art to explore our experiences of everyday life and use them as raw material in the creative process. In doing so we can make these experiences understandable or acceptable to ourselves and to the world outside.

Studio Upstairs is a space to take some joy in colour, texture, and making art. For those of us who struggle to find a way to be with ourselves and others, this can the breathing space we need.

The title of the exhibition comes from an artwork in the exhibition. It is suggestive of the sense of play and creativity that can be found floating in places such as the UCLH.

In 2018 Studio Upstairs celebrates 30 years since first established. Now growing as a national organisation with branches in Dalston, Croydon and Bristol, it continues to hold art, education and health in the same frame.
