More Than 100 Stories
Artist Nicole Mollett and writer Sarah Butler have created a series of texts, drawings and maps in response to the 21 Creative People and Places projects that have been set up across England. The works reside online as a digital collection that is built up around the ten themes of confidence, decision-making, failure, language, local, partnership, people, taste, time and trust. A selection of the works is also on display at No.34 over the course of January.
7-31 January 2017, Ideas Test, 34 High Street, Sittingbourne.

Fourteen Ways To Get Rich Quick
Whether it’s the American Dream, becoming an A-lister (there’s never been a better time to feature on a reality TV show!) or printing your own money, this exhibition contains 14 artworks by 12 artists that each demonstrate a method for making your millions. Curated for Scaffold Gallery by – of course! – the appropriately named Ivanna Getrich.
12-28 January 2017, Unit 26-28 New Art Spaces, Churchgate House, Churchgate, Bolton.

On Location: Kayla Parker
Shown in Plymouth Arts Centre‘s cinema between screenings, Kayla Parker’s short film, On Location, takes its starting point from a remote farmhouse featured in the 1977 artist’s book, Escaping Notice by Annabel Nicolson. The film takes in landscape and meteorological phenomena filmed in a sunken lane leading to the mid-Devon farmhouse.
10-19 January 2017, Plymouth Arts Centre, 38 Looe Street, Plymouth.

The Lot 5 Collective
This new collective of contemporary representational artists holds its first exhibition. The works exhibited all invoke an ethos of skill. The artists each deploy traditional techniques – from fashion drawing to classical painting – all the while introducing contemporary themes and influences such as comics or film.
10-20 January 2017, Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1.

The 15 artists in this exhibition are all graduates of UCA Farnham and members of the peer-supportive KanKan Collective. Considering notions of change and risk, the artists each present work that in some way conveys a sense of being on a threshold – an analogy also for the state of the emerging artist.
10-22 January 2017, Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London E2.
