Debaser then, another art show from us here at Cultivate, this time in a basement over in Dalston, edges of Hackney, over in London N16. A group show featuring seventeen artists and a whole load of cross-pollinating art on the walls of BSMT Space gallery for a short sharp four-day Easter weekend. There’s some words up on the Organ pages and coverage of the other artists; ORGAN THING: Debaser, trumpet blowing at an art show in a Dalston basement…
Putting together a group show can be a thankless task at times, hours and hours of organising artists and their art can be a little bit trying at times, still, all just about worthwhile when people come and explore the art, big big thank to everyone who did, I think Emma and I enjoyed it, we enjoyed sharing the walls and bringing you art from other artists, a coming together and a cross-pollination of styles and ways of doing things. “I can’t work out if you’re a street artist or a proper artist” said one inquiring mind, well I always thought street art was proper art and I don’t really need a pigeonhole do I? I’m a gardener, I garden in galleries and on the streets, just an artist (and a reluctant curator) doing what I do, no need to put an more of a label on it than that.
Big thanks to all who made the effort to come among, always appreciated, bit thanks to the other artists who accepted our invitation to take part and yes, big thanks to those who bought art, always good to sell a piece of art and have some money to go buy more paint and plant some more thorn-sprouting seeds. here’s a few shots from the show, the art of the others artists can be found on the Organ pages.
Most of the canvas pieces were on sale at £43, Debaser was hung on the 86th day of the year, 43 days on from the #43 show, most of them have sold now. 43 pieces were also painted at the gallery during the show, 43 small pieces on recycled wood, all the pieces were on sale at £5 during the show Of course it goes without saying that all the work is on sale (well quite a few of the pieces sold over the weekend), you’ll find quite a few paintings via the Cultivate on-line shop and if you don’t see the piece you are interested please do ask.
