The Artist And His Studio

Helga Fannon and I went on a studio visit to our first artist in residence yesterday. We brought you some pictures from Unit 12  Merton Abbey Mills.

nice gallery is coming soon

Hi there, I’m Rosa and this is our first blog post for nice.

If you’re wondering what we do:

nice gallery is a nine month gallery and residency program for emerging artist. The program will take place in and around Colliers Wood. Each artist will be given one month to produce site/context specific work in the residency space. The work will then be shown around the Tooting/Colliers Wood area in commercial spaces under meanwhile leases. All exhibitions and events will be open to the public. Each resident artist will pledge time to run workshops or an outreach program of their choosing in order to increase understanding of their work and engagement in the arts. There are still two residency spaces so feel free to send over your work, bio and a statement to info@nicegallery.co.uk.

About to send off our Arts Council application, so wish us luck!
