Preview: Camera City at A-Side B-Side Gallery

A-Side B-Side Gallery, one of our neighbours here at Spindle headquarters, is introducing a new exhibition this weekend. It’s based on the first floor of the studios and is run by artists Tinsel Edwards and Catherine Magnani. It has been the home to many exhibitions, events, classes and workshops for and by creatives in the past. And is sure to be so for others in the future!

In early September A-Side B-Side held an exhibition titled ‘100 Cats’, for those people out there whose hearts are driven by a feline counterpart, or several. The exhibition was a group project celebrating existing and emerging artists, much like the Rap-Art exhibition prior to it in July of 2014. This particular project brought together new and old artists on various artistic platforms to celebrate the underground music and photography scene in the UK.

As well as exhibitions, the gallery hosts’ workshops, some being weekly regulars and others are one-off classes that bring in artists and guest creatives to teach in their expertise area of art. Get involved with life drawing classes, Artist talk and toddler art classes on a weekly basis! Perhaps not in that order though…

This weekend is the second solo exhibition for Elena Cinquegrana, this project is titled ‘Camera City: Furtively Capturing London Moods’ and it’s being held at the A-Side B-Side Gallery until the 13th October. Capturing the beauty and essence of London through the lens of a BlackBerry Bold 9900. Combining the contemporary urban landscape of London with Elena’s passion for telling a story with one image, the exhibition incorporate a lot of Elena’s emotions, thoughts and dreams.
