Great to see so many of you at the Private View. A great turn out despite the footie!
Earlier this year, Emily Stevens visited the studios at University of East London where she graduated in 2013. After being inspired by the talent showcasing there, Emily decided to collaborate with 5 other students who embrace similar themes in their work of nostalgia and loss.
This show brings together works in various media including photography, sculpture, painting and collage in response to these common themes that unite the artists.
Artists: Geraldine Buckland, Clémence Hémard, , Anthony Pujol, Eli Sou, Emily Kathryn Stevens, Verity Marklew.
SHOW RUNS FROM FRIDAY 6 TO SUNDAY 8 JUNE FROM 1 -5PM
Thanks to everyone who came along to the Opening Night of ESSENCE. It was a great night! Amazing, talented work from up and coming artists including Geraldine Buckland, Clemence Harmard, Cheryl Lund, Anthony Pujol, Verity Marklew and Emily Katheryn Stephens.
Congratulations to the students and graduates who collaborated to put on ESSENCE. It was a major achievement straight after mounting final year shows. Good luck from all of us at Art Hub for the future!

HEAR JOHN JONES TALK ABOUT HIS PRINTING TECHNIQUE ON SATURDAY 24 MAY 2.30 - 3.30PM
IMPRINT BY JOHN JONES
OPEN 10 – 25 MAY 2014 Thursdays to Sundays 1 - 5pm
Jones is an artist-printmaker, specializing in figurative colour linoprints. His subjects are derived from memorable sightings and occasions, often based on his coastal or moorland surroundings in Yorkshire. He explores varied interpretations of his chosen topics by modifying the printing techniques. The prints are produced by the 'reduction-block' method by which successive overlaying colours are printed progressively from the same linoblock or blocks, with the block(s) being cut or etched away (ie 'reduced') between each colour stage. This ensures accurate colour registration, but also means that only one edition of each complete image is possible. He uses an 1840 'Albion' cast-iron platen handpress to produce his prints. Jones has refined the technique to achieve an intensity and depth in his work. Using a subtle but rich palette, he displays an expert eye for composition, draughtsmanship and colour.
There will be an opportunity to meet the artist and hear him talk of his work on Saturday 24 May from 2.30 – 3.30pm.
The talk is free but places are limited. To ensure your booking please contact the gallery manager Lou Beer on 07970 628854 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
