LUXAC will be presenting their luxury backpacks from Monday 17 to Saturday 22 November 2014. Special discounts and samples will be available to purchase from designer Louise Bangay. Join us for a drink on Thursday 20 from 6pm.

Recent work by Yael David-Cohen

For this exhibition Yael presents a selection of recent work in three separate but related areas: fibre art and painting, artist's books and printmaking (etching and linocut). The works follow the theme of process of change in form and situation. Sometimes this is achieved in a series of works.

One of the connections between the works in the different media is recycling. For the fibre art Yael uses found fabric as a basis for painting and etching. Similarly, the artist's books comprise old carte de visite albums and photographs with added etching and occasionally fabric. Yael is showing representative pieces together from her practice because of their interrelatedness. The separate but related areas of work form an interesting combination to showcase reused and found objects inspired by natural processes of growth and change.

The exhibition runs from Wednesday 5 to Monday 10 November 2014. Open Monday to Friday 10am-6pm. 
The private view will be Thursday 6 November, 6-8pm.

Head for the Horizon, I'll meet you there: A solo show by Alice Stallard

Alice Stallard  presented her solo exhibition 'Head for the Horizon, I'll meet you there' at Nancy Victor this October. The objects that people carry with them are investigated and interpreted by Alice in this solo exhibition. Loved and weathered, these often ordinary and everyday objects, carry great importance for their keepers and trigger memories of past adventures, hopes and dreams. Stallard delves into this notion weaving rich and colourful narratives around the objects, hinting at or exposing their talismanic presence. 

For this series of mixed media work, Stallard taps into popular and domestic culture with her use of printed ephemera, layered between hand-drawn images, paint and print. Traces of folds, etched and stitched marks are also found in the tactile surfaces reflecting the hidden or secret histories the objects portray. Colourful and composed, these cryptically titled pieces invite the viewer to look, stare and wonder. 

The exhibition ran from 28th October to 3rd November 2014.

Shop Formula is back for Christmas!

'Satirism - sat??? ?z(?)m' a solo show by Nick Smith

Presented by ArtDog London, 'Satirism - sat??? ?z(?)m' will be exhibited from Monday 13th - Saturday 18th October. Opening times 10am-6pm, Saturday 12-6pm
Nick Smith has an MA in product design.  He originally started his degree designing cars but wanting something with a wider scope moved to product design. He has a successful career as an interior design architect for hotels, bars, restaurants and ships. Working with Patone Colour samples in his day job ignited the idea of reductive art down to the basic elements while leaving intact the iconic recognisability. 

In Target Practice Nick has taken the soup can making a Warholian screen print and shooting it full of holes with a shot gun (which had to be done in Canada as he could not get permission to do it anywhere in the UK).   Hence, taking pot shots at Warhol in the form of what is most commonly used as practice fodder for gun enthusiasts, soup cans.   

Private View: Thursday 16th October, 6-8pm.

Questions to ask when hiring a venue for an exhibition, pop up or event

When looking for a venue to host an exhibition, pop up shop or event choose a space that reflects your brand and ethos. Set a clear and realsitic budget for your exhibition or pop up and look around to see what locations and venues best suit. Prices vary depending on the location and size of the space. 
Before contacting a venue, ensure you know details such as dates (can be rough), length of hire and what you intend to show to give them an idea of your requirements and to get a quicker response.

Ask about the footfall of the area and what types of exhibitions or pop ups have been succesfull in the past. Weekends are generally retailers busiest times so ask how busy the area gets and decide on whether a weekend opening suits your event. 

When visiting venues, keep the following questions in mind:

Is the venue location easily accessible?
How and when can I book the venue?
What’s the capacity?
Do I need insurance?
Can I decorate the venue?
How long can I hire the venue for?
Is there a kitchen?
How do I cancel my booking?

If you want to inquire about hiring Nancy Victor, get in touch with Rachael via email or call 020 7813 0373.

Comedy Snaphot book launch by Steve Best

Comedian Steve Best has just released his first book 'Comedy Snapshot', a behind the scenes record of life on the comedy circuit, its characters and performers, from their own perspective. Steve has spent the last seven years documenting his fellow stand-ups backstage – some old, some young, some famous, some 
established and some just starting out – a real mixture, a comedy snapshot. 

Steve held the book launch at Nancy Victor last night, which coincides with a mini exhibition. Catch him for a tea and a branded biscuit until Monday 7th April. The book has a whopping 440 pages for the tiny price of £7.99 and can be bought during the show.

In later years, he was Head of Department at the University of Westminster (formerly Harrow School of Art), having also worked at St MartinĂ­s, Chelsea and Maidstone Schools of Art. In the 70s and early 80s, he was involved in documentary film-making and feature script-writing.

Memories of a child by Olatunde Oyinloye
PV: Friday 21st February 6-8pm
Saturday 22nd - Thursday 27th February 2014

Memories of a Child represents a childhood filled with happiness, playfulness, exploration, learning, and socialising. Many will find this revealing and Olatunde feels people of a similar background will identify with this, while the older ones may find it a bit nostalgic. Olatunde's approach to painting involves a wide variety of influences, sometimes expressed in his Landscape, Wildlife, Still life and Portrait paintings. But it is a strong desire to interrogate public persona with an objective view that singles out Olatunde's depictions as a visual narrator, a message that particularly comes across in this new body of work.

Open Monday - Friday 10-6pm, Saturday 22nd 12-6pm / /
