Riverside Artists Group was formed in 1986 at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith. Its raison d’être is to support and promote practising visual artists based in West London.
RAG is run by its artists. It provides a network for exchanging ideas and information. Since its creation, RAG has organized many exhibitions in public and commercial spaces, and has instigated projects in the UK and abroad.
In the group there is tolerance, through an acceptance of difference, that allows individuality to flourish. Many of RAG’s exhibitions have been self-selected, leaving it up to the artists to take responsibility for what they show.
The criterion for this exhibition was that each artist could show one new work measuring 50 x 40cm. There was no set theme for the show. The result has a feeling of integrity, while displaying a diversity of styles and media.Using paint, collage, photography and other materials, the artists reveal their view of life. In different styles and with different starting points the exhibition shows how they perceive our society and acknowledges the state of our world. These are original works that allow the viewer the opportunity to understand, appreciate and enjoy.
The exhibition, at Riverside Studios, Crisp Road, London W6 9RL, reflects the diversity of the group. It runs from Mon 16 December - Tuesday 31 December.
