Hanging ‘Reflection’

IMG_5560 IMG_5564 IMG_5568 IMG_5569 Our ‘Reflection’ exhibition was hung today in readiness for tomorrow’s opening. ‘Reflection’ is our fourth group exhibition in the setting of St Stephen Walbrook (39 Walbrook, London EC4N 8BN). Tuesday 6 – Friday 16 September (Weekdays 10.00am – 4.00pm, Weds 11.00am – 3.00pm).

An exhibition reception (6.30pm) and commission4mission’s AGM (5.30pm) will be held tomorrow (Tuesday 6 September). The exhibition launch reception, to which all are welcome, will include a talk by writer, broadcaster and commentator Richard D. North. Richard describes himself as “a complicated conservative, and a bit hippy and arty round the edges, with an increasing interest in the idea of spirituality.”

Our secretary, Jonathan Evens, will give an illustrated talk at 1.00pm (repeated at 5.00pm) on Wednesday 14th September at St Stephen Walbrook entitled ‘Congruity and controversy: exploring issues for contemporary commissions.’ Modern commissions by Henry Moore, Patrick Heron, Hans Coper and Andrew Varah at St IMG_5551Stephen Walbrook bring into focus some of the key issues and questions regarding modern or contemporary commissions. I will explore these issues in this talk, which will be in the context of the ‘Reflection’ exhibition.

As in previous years, the exhibition features a wide variety IMG_5553of work from longstanding and new members including assemblages, collages, paintings, photography, pottery, and sculpture. ‘Reflection’ is intended as a broad theme open to wider interpretation. Our artists showcase their individual engagements with this theme and IMG_5572we hope that the range and variety of work, both in terms of content and media, will give pleasure and prompt reflection. Exhibiting artists include: Hayley Bowen, Harvey Bradley, Irina Bradley, Christopher Clack, Mary Davey, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Terry Ffyffe, Rob Floyd, Maurizio Galia, Michael Garaway, John Gentry, Clorinda Goodman, Barbara Harris, Tim Harrold, Anthony Hodgson, Mark Lewis, David Millidge, Janet Roberts, Henry Shelton, Sergiy Shkanov and Peter Webb.
