Embracing Africa The Alpha 4th -10th November

Embracing Africa The Alpha (T.A.M.F) is a collection of brand new works of art mostly paintings representing Africa. It is a celebration of Africa, primarily the hard working Women of Africa.

"There was always one man to guide me and help me with my projects when I visited Ghana so I dedicate the Embracing Africa exhibition to my father Tse Ataa Mensah. This year being the 3rd anniversary of the Death, it is with great pleasure and sadness to present this exhibition Embracing Africa The Alpha (T.A.M.F). This exhibition is just the beginning it is the first part of a collection of work, my father was a part of this project. Embracing Africa continues with many more drawings and paintings to be completed for next year."

In his 'Dark Entries' exhibition Trak E. Smith incorporated a wide range of media to explore and illustrate the darker aspects of human existence (perfect timing in the run up to Hallowe'en). All the exhibition artwork was available for sale and included photography, sculpture, illustration and paintings with many successful sales taking place.

Look out for Trak's future work and a possible exhibition with us in 2009.

Danse Macabre(returns!) 29th -3rd November

The 2nd Annual Danse Macabre exhibition was a huge success with its opening on Halloween!

Ephemeral and faded beauty sits side-by-side with dark and brooding imagery; a haunting Otherworld of the imagination. This is a revival of the true essence and romance of the Gothic, stimulating a frisson of pleasure in the viewer; the exotic, sinister carnival has come to town with its sideshows offering tantalising glimpses of strange and fantastic creatures; an unsettling mix of wonder and fear.

Danse Macabre brings together artists from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines whose work explores the darker aspects of the subconscious mind. Look out for their future projects in 2009.
