Outpost proudly presents London Seen, an exciting new summer exhibition of mixed media artwork by adults attending creative courses at PBHA’s workshop in Hoxton. Co-curated by the students, the gallery is jam-packed with an eclectic array of original textiles, prints, paintings and drawings, exploring personal observations and experiences of living in London. With something for everyone, techniques and inspiration vary from traditional to experimental, amusing to thought-provoking, and from cityscapes to fish n’ chips.
London Seen exhibition is an opportunity for students to showcase and celebrate their artwork produced over the past year in our weekly creative classes, taught in partnership with the WEA. Representing the diversity of new experiences, skills and self-expression that has been developed.
It’s our pleasure to be able to share these achievements with the local community. Most of the artwork is for sale, priced from £40 to £160, and purchases help raise money to provide creative courses at PBHA, supporting London residents to develop their personal potential. Why not adorn your wall with a unique piece of artwork from London Seen?
