RAG AT CENTRAL SPACE GALLERYAcava Studios, 23-29 Faroe Road, London W14 0EL

PART 1: 6-16 June   |   PART 2: 20-30 June



The Riverside Artists Group (RAG) was formed in 1986 after an Open Submission Exhibition at Riverside Studios. The strength of this independent group has endured with exhibitions in both the UK and abroad. In 1988 they spearheaded the first UK exhibition to Russia post Perestroika, receiving help from the Foreign Office and a return visit from Russian artists in 1989.  RAG members have also shown in Poland, France, Spain and, more recently, in China.

In London RAG artists show regularly, and now 25 members will exhibit in two exhibitions at ACAVA’s Central Space Gallery, Shepherds Bush. The first exhibition (see below for dates) is concurrent with the H&F ArtsFest (http://www.hf-artsfest.com ) with which it is a partner, supporting this 5th local Arts Festival running from June 2-10th.

13 artists will show in Part 1, and 12 artists in Part 2 (please see list of names attached).

This is an opportunity to see what local working artists have to offer, both at the start of their careers and for those already established. With a mix of contemporary painting, sculpture, mixed media, performance, film and installation, RAG presents works to challenge our ways of thinking while celebrating a diversity of approach.

Two fascinating and revealing Sunday lunchtime discussions with artists from each exhibition will be led by Stephen Williams (former Course Leader, MA Fine Art, Central St. Martins). Both talks and exhibitions are free to the general public*. Please see website for further information.
