St Jude's in the City - Ends Thursday

St Jude's In the City

Despite heavy snow and transport cancellations St Jude's exhibition at the Bankside Gallery (next door to the Tate Modern) seems to be getting on for a sell out show. (although I think they are sending out for more prints, so a visit wouldn't be a waste of time).

St Judes in the city shows the work of mostly print-based artists - Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld, Jonny Hannah, Jonathan Gibbs, Alice Stevenson and Christopher Brown as well as Letterpress items from Hand and Eye Letterpress, Clothes by Old Town and Vintage furniture upholstered in Angie Lewin Fabrics.

It's a great show, with a good selection of artists who are proud to be doing what they are doing without blindly following trend, and who have an eye to the history of art and printmaking whilst moving it on.

If you haven't made it yet you've got till Thursday to do so. You can look at some work on their website but it does all look better in the flesh.
