Prefix is 'Post' is the interim show of 2nd year BA fine art students from the University for the Creative Arts
With an abundance of information and a multi-layered reality - by which we refer to as the world around us - our response is to create within our own terms, taking a reviewing, self-inquiring and self asserting position.
The show is a reflection of a diversity of practice, perspectives, political and cultural attitudes, with work ranging from painting, where painting becomes a sculptural medium, sculpture as image, the experience of the present under the form of performance, moving image, installation and photography.

Lewisham Arthouse Project Space will be hosting an exhibition of paintings by Townly Cooke (1949 - 2016), a long-standing member of the Lewisham Arthouse studios who sadly died in June last year.
The exhibition will present a selection of Townly's last works, reflecting his preoccupations at the time of his untimely death. It will include the series of paintings Double Degas, a meditation on the 19th century French artist Townly particularly admired; Darkroom Tent, which poses questions about photography and reality; and on a more intimate scale, some sensitive drawings from his sketchbooks.

‘[The] simple act of tying a knot is an adventure in unlimited space ... an excursion that is limited only by the scope of our own imagery and the length of the rope makers coil.'
Clifford Ashley, The Ashley Book of Knots
From 27th April to 14th May, Lewisham Art House will present KNOTS, an exhibition of new work by Shiree Allen, Nancy Edwards, Jo Evans and Liz Workman.
Knots are everywhere in our daily life, often overlooked but always invaluable. Working in print, photography, sculpture and works on paper, each artist has responded to the theme of knots: the literal (tangled, connected, binding, tension, repetition); the psychological and emotional (stomach knots, ‘certain knot of peace’, tying the knot); and the mythological (Gordian knots, Heraldic knots). A collaborative sculpture forms the centre piece of the exhibition.
