If Not Now, Whenever: 7 Cambridge Artists Exhibit at the Gallery on Redchurch Street, London

Redchurch Street, one of East London’s up-and-coming streets, is home to many emerging arty enterprises including the Gallery in Redchurch Street. This week the gallery housed a show by 7 artists from the Cambridge School of Art. Shows at self-hire galleries can sometimes be a little dubious but this exhibition caught my attention because the caliber of all the work was so high. (It helped, too, that Jane Bradley’s wonderful embroidered artist’s book was just inside the front door… like a moth to a flame, I was.) Further inside, Robert Good’s bookcase portraits were a wonderful example of how aesthetically pleasing a good bookshelf can be, while artist Matthew Wilson managed to make a bunch of abject objects (medical equipment) into beautiful, graceful installations. The show was a brief one-week stint but here are some images from the artists and you can get in touch with any of them via their website.
