Lights of Soho: Second Annual Submission to Set Brewer Street Aglow

London’s premier showcase of neon and light art is proud to announce its second annual submission. New and established artists in the form are invited to submit. Their work will be curated by a special guest artist whose name will be revealed in due course. Last year’s submissions were curated by Robert Montgomery, the famous text artist, who works with fire, light and billboards amongst other media, so SEEN expects the standards to be very high. The exhibition will be open to the public from 28th September – 29th October 2016.

Hamish Jenkinson, Lights of Soho’s regular curator is clearly delighted to welcome submissions from all over the world: “After the amazing entries we received last year, which included artists from New Zealand, Israel and beyond, we’re thrilled to once again bring back our democratic experience which allows young artists to submit their work to the gallery. Lights of Soho is a hub for young creatives and we want to shout about these incredible artists and display their works on our walls and welcome in the next generation of light and neon artists.”

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
