For this month’s exhibition Public View and Photo Stroll, Frame and Reference visited Project Art Works‘ group show The Room and Everything in it at Dilston Grove, CGP London (14 Nov – 1 Dec 2013) just before it closed. The show is dedicated to the memory of two of the participants of the Tuesday Studios group, Fred Mazzio, who died suddenly in 2012, and David Marriot, who died this year. See previous post here.

The group show “celebrates three years of creative interaction and production by the Tuesday Studios group and reveals the negotiation and processes involved in weekly collaborations between seven artists and eleven people who have extraordinary and diverse ways of engaging with the world. Through installation, video, objects and painting the preoccupations of the Tuesday group are installed (here) within a three-dimensional drawing of their studio at the Project Art Works base in Hastings”.
The eclectic and inspiring show featured installation, painting, drawing, film and animation reflecting “multiple and profound creative events in the Tuesday Studios over the past three years” and, if the pages of The Comments Book are anything to go by (see photos below), the show touched and inspired many people.
Project Art Works collaborates with visual artists and contemporary art galleries such as MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool and the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill to help bring their work into mainstream culture.
