Invitation to Participate Private View

An exciting and playful exhibition, 'Invitation to Participate' opened its doors on Saturday 7th May, welcoming visitors of the private view to experience a realm of art engaging with participation.

Mcgilvary/White chose individuals to play with their work 'Pong', while Alice Kilkenny offered a serene window space of colorful reflection to sit in. Katie Tindle transformed you into a voyeur with a frantic stat screen of her health, while Jacob Watmore cast you as the protagonist of your own scene in his piece 'Script, Pepperami'. An indie art game weaved a visual poem in the form of Daniel Benmergui's 'Today I Die', and drifting over the gallery the words of the tongue in cheek protest flag by Shireen Liane, commanded everyone to 'Let Them Eat iPhones'. In the background the eclectic music of the San Dance Company played, an organisation stemming from San Keller's intriguing work 'Until the Last Dance', a contractual agreement between yourself and the artist to dance for the rest of your life to your chosen song.

The exhibition runs until June 11th, open Thursday - Saturday, 10am - 3pm.

Work in Progress Private View – 10th Dec

Today is a special day, it is the launch of our new exhibition with Portsmouth University's CCI Faculty.  This evening we will be opening up Sticks in Fareham to a preview of CFA: Work in Progress.

Private View Thursday 10th Dec -- Work in Progress

 

What's it about....?

This new show offers a chance for members of the public to see what goes on behind the creation of a piece of art.  It enables us to see the process of making art, and as this is the first in a series of exhibition detailing these emerging artists and their move into being artists out on their own, the progress they make on their work throughout their final year of study, culminating in their degree show to be held at Portsmouth University and in London next year.

The private view runs between 5:30-7:30pm this evening and all the artists will be on hand to discuss their work with you and answer any questions.  The Live Art Local CIC/Sticks gallery team will also be there to discuss and answer any questions you might have about us and what we plan for the future.

There will also be free food and drink and if we can make them in time lovely homemade mince pies and mulled wine to get you in the festive spirit!

Don't know where sticks is, don't worry, you can find us in the Fareham Shopping Centre at Unit 79a just inside opposite Millets

Can't make the preview don't worry we are open every Thursday - Saturday 10:30 am - 3pm
