"Art speaks where words are unable to explain"
It speaks about who we are, the community we live in, and how our lives are affected by those around us.
A group of eleven artists from London have got together to present 'Control'. An exhibition of new works responding creatively to the feelings, challenges, and stories of people with Parkinson's disease.
As a South Londoner, I'm so happy to see the area becoming the hub of a thriving creative force. Artists who are constantly engaging and coming up with innovative means to make a positive impact on the community. Raising awareness about ongoing issues, which probably don't get the kind of attention they deserve.
The event organised by artist Marcus Aitken in partnership with Parkinson's UK, will be held at the hARTsLane Gallery at New Cross Gate from Friday 21st September to Sunday 23rd September, 10am to 5pm.
It's also going to be part of the Deptford X festival which starts on the 21st. The exhibition seeks to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s UK, and will also include an affordable art shop with artworks under £50. It's a win- win for everyone involved.
Here are some of the artists, who are part of this collective. Their styles are so vastly different, so it's surely going to be exciting to see their unique interpretations for this exhibit!
If you are in the area, do pop in to show support, and grab some brilliant art work for your walls.
