Sweet 'Art, a non-profit arts organization based in London, is hosting its first Summer Arts Festival in collaboration with curator Shannon Rose, including an Art Bar Crawl.
Sweet ‘Art’s Summer Festival will be a week of art, music, installations and activities, free to all and supporting the charity Papyrus.
On 18 August, three Shoreditch venues will open their doors to showcase a celebration of culture in the city; The Espacio Gallery on Bethnal Green Road will be hosting ‘Punch’, The Looking Glass Bar with its quirky Alice in Wonderland vibe will hosting the ‘Queen of Arts’ exhibition and Juno on Shoreditch High Street will be hosting the ‘Salad Days’ event.
The exhibitions will include the work of talented artists working in the media of painting, sculpture, photography and print. As part of the event, Sweet ‘Art will host a programme of free workshops for adults and children at the spacious Espacio gallery. Everyone will be invited to interact with a beach-ball ball-park installation, snack on themed edibles and drinks, and enjoy a night of live music, live painting and DJ’s at our arty party.
Sweet ‘Art will also be hosting London’s first ever Art Bar Crawl. Visitors will be welcomed with drinks at each venue, with talks and Q&A by our talented artists, before heading to the next venue with aid of a Festival Map and Art Tour Guide. Other highlights include:
‘Draw your own narrative’ workshop with artist and CSM tutor Joanna Layla. Children’s ‘Summer Memories’ printmaking workshop with artist Joseph Kopiel. Live music from Big Sixes, Jim Caesar and Paige Dawkins. DJ set by KRALCLIFE
