PEER Notices – Open House, Open Door
PEER takes part in this year’s Open House London, the world’s largest architecture festival, which gives free public access to over 800 buildings across London. Following this year’s theme of ‘social’, PEER Notices artist Rebecca Moss and the PEER Ambassadors will take over PEER’s gallery space, using its doorway as a starting point to think about welcomes and crossing frontiers.
21 September, 12-6pm, 97&99 Hoxton Street, London, N1 6QL. www.a-n.co.uk/events/open-house-open-door
Sharon Drew presents her abstract paintings at William Road Gallery, housed within John McAslan & Partners architecture firm. Drew’s large-scale paintings are prompted by visits to urban and rural landscapes including the Thames foreshore and the coasts of Cornwall and Kent. Building up opaque and translucent layers with repetitive and rhythmic gestures, her works seek to emulate the constant fluctuations of nature by conveying sensations of shifting light, colour and movement.
23 September – 27 November 2019, William Road Gallery @ John McAslan & Partners, 7-9 William Road, London, NW1 3ER. www.a-n.co.uk/events/sharon-drew-immersion/
Head in the Clouds
As part of Somerset Art Weeks Festival, artist Miriam Sheppard presents an installation at Heritage Courtyard Gallery and Studios. Her graphite drawings of clouds on translucent paper occupy 72 square metres of the exhibition space, acting as a canopy and covering two walls. Accompanying this ‘cloudscape’ is a specially composed piece of ambient music, ‘to encourage visitors to sit and relax in the space’.
21 September – 6 October 2019, 6 Heritage Courtyard, Sadler Street, Wells BA5, 2RR. www.a-n.co.uk/events/head-in-the-clouds
A collaborative installation by artists Maureen Jordan and Caroline Bugby inspired by the recent archaeological project, ‘Finding Eanswythe’, which explored the life of the Anglo-Saxon, Kentish Royal Saint and granddaughter of Ethelbert, the first English king to convert to Christianity under Augustine. Jordan has taken the theme of water as a source of life and plays with the ideas of the miraculous and transformative; Bugby has created a series of fragmented and crumbling vessels that speak of the actions of containing and drinking water.
20-22 September 2019, St Mary Burham Church, Old Church Road, Burham, Rochester ME1 3XY. https://www.a-n.co.uk/events/confluence
