In 2009, the Contemporary Art Society launched a pioneering membership programme for individuals across the North of England, to bring the rich diversity of artistic talent residing in the region to the attention of new audiences and potential collectors. Over the last 4 years, Contemporary Art Society North has organised studio visits and exhibition tours with over 60 artists.Tip of the Iceberg: Art from Up North presents work by a selection of these artists, to inspire more people to venture to the North East, North West and Yorkshire.
Curated by Mark Doyle and Rebecca Morrill (Heads of Contemporary Art North) the show includes work by Iain Andrews, Eric Bainbridge, Catherine Bertola, Pavel Büchler, Rachael Clewlow, Graham Dolphin, Leo Fitzmaurice, Susie Green, Matthew Houlding, Nick Kennedy, Laura Lancaster, Paul Merrick, Anne Vibeke Mou, Michael Mulvihill, Emily Speed, Matt Stokes and Rafal Topolewski. All work will be for sale with a percentage of the proceeds going to the ongoing programming of the Contemporary Art North.
Members are invited to join us for the preview.
