Four cities, four continents, 17 beautiful pieces of art and the talent of a group of international artists.
Where can one get this unique opportunity to view all of these under one roof? Well, the world's first international exchange of homeless artworks exhibition is back again! This time, Cafe Art is pleased to welcome artists from Berlin, the art gallery of Europe and the capital of Germany. We linked up with Gitschiner 15 - an organisation that provides cultural and health services for the low-income and homeless in Berlin, which so happens to have a thriving art group too.
So if you happen to be near London Bridge station between now and 15th Jan 2016, do head to The Refectory at Southwark Cathedralwhereby they are proudly hosting our 3rd annual 'This is Where I Live 2015' exhibition showcasing urban landscape drawings of Berlin, London, Melbourne and New York as seen and painted by artists living in those cities themselves.
We are also pleased to be partnering once again with freshart in New York and Launch Housing in Melbourne in this annual exchange of artworks to show a solidarity of our mission to highlight the visual art of marginalised people in our cities. We are committed to raising public awareness and recognition of these artists’ work and talent, as well as promoting art as a tool for personal expression, creative growth and positive transformation. The artworks in this exhibition show the wide range of subjects when the idea of “this is where I live” is thoughtfully considered.
The artworks are for sale too. So if you wish to own a unique piece of art from one of these 4 great cities, do pop down to view them with your friends and families over the festive period ....
Many thanks to Southwark Cathedral, Chris, Jon and Nadine for the support!
