SORTED London exhibition Private view

The crowds inside and outside the gallery
On the 9th of June at East Gallery in Brick lane London, The 'SORTED' exhibition had its private view and opening night. Having got a mention by grafikmag andAmelia's Magazine amoung others before the opening night, There was an AMAZING turn out and the whole gallery was buzzing with a fantastic atmosphere! for most of the night there were SO many people the crowds spilled out onto the streets.

The Exhibition features work by Myself/ Chetan Kumar/ Carne Griffiths/ Sean Burtenshaw/ Lucy Wragg/ Emma Cowley/ Jo Cheung/ Eleanor Bedlow/ Thomas Leadbetter/ Rosie Smith

Everybody was enjoying themselves, although at times, it did get a little warm and hectic as we rushed to make sure everybody had a drink!

It was such a huge success and we've had lovely reviews including one from Amelia's magazine (where you can see a photo of me standing by the door looking a bit crazy as I was in a bit of a panic trying to get hold of someone! lol)

The exhibition even managed to attract a celebrity! One of the artists Lucy Wragg (who is also my old classmate and friend as well as the organiser of this exhibition) was exhibiting a painting of Matt Berry from The IT crowd and The Mighty Boosh (among other shows) and he came along to the exhibit to see the artwork!

On the right is my sneaky photo I took of him in the gallery! He even tweeted about the show and had his photo taken next to Lucy and the painting she did of him.

I am so happy and proud. All the artists in this exhibition have worked really hard to create a vibrant, varied and exciting exhibition (even if I do say so myself. lol!) But don't just take my word for it, go see it of you can! Not to mention there is an amazing bagel and cake shop opposite the gallery which is a perfect post exhibition viewing snack!

Sneak peek!

Here's a tiny sneak preview of just some of the work on show:

I will post again when the exhibition is over with more photos of the work on show when it has finished. Until then, if you can see it, head down to East Gallery on Brick Lane and check it out! It's showing until the 15th of June open all day from 10.30 - 8.30.

Here's a photo taken of us artists involved by Amelia Gregory at the end of a rather busy, warm but fantastic evening!

The SORTED crew!
