L'art pour l'art

Redbridge Art Association

The R.A.A. was formed as a result of the demise of the Redbridge Arts Council when all funding was withdrawn by Redbridge Council in 2011. It comprises Redbridge Marquetry Group, Redbridge Art Group, Ilford Art Society, St. Teresa’s Art Group (U3A), Fullwell Cross Art Group (U3A) and a group of independent photographers. The Association is entirely self-funding.

In 2013 Redbridge Art Association will be holding its Fourth Annual Art Exhibition at the Dovecote in Valentines Park. The show will run for the three months of July, August and September with all six groups taking part. Two groups will exhibit for each month.

This small gallery has demonstrated some remarkable statistics in the past, and last year’s exhibition attracted over two thousand visitors over its three month run with sixty-two artists represented and a total of 282 works exhibited, many of which were sold.

Unless a kind benefactor comes up with a trophy or some other kind of tribute, prize-winners, as before, will be selected by a visitors’ poll, and the cash prizes will be provided by the small entry fee charged to each exhibitor. Public admission of course is entirely free. Further details will be published nearer the date.

Any lady or gentleman (or organisation) considering offering practical support to the above venture should contact me via my email address and I will be more than happy to talk about it.

  1. Perhaps we could persuade David Martin /Vision to donate the models of the Fairlop Waters Memorial as suitable trophies for the winners?
