Blink Events- First Thursdays

The first Thursday of every month the galleries of East London’s Vyner Street open their doors for an evening of browsing, mooching and possibly even purchasing!  We hadn’t been over this way since December so thought it was a good opportunity to get back and see whats going on.

From around 5pm until late you can wander around and enjoy a diverse selection of art across the multitude of galleries set conveniently side by side in what has been coined London’s Contemporary Art District.  The galleries on Vyner Street are all showing young, innovative, international artists. The small street gradually filled up with a stylishly, arty crowd as the evening wore on.  Beside the attraction of the cultural fix, it’s a good place to hang out over a cheap beer with friends.
The next First Thursday will be on the 3rd of June. By then we should have lots of sunshine so it could be a great way to spend a warm summer evening. We’ll see you there…

Blink Events- Intense Arts

Thanks to our intrepid “Blink” contributors, Tilly and Natalie for this post-

In December we took a trip to Vyner Street in Bethnal Green to take a look at the latest exhibitions. This is a location for all interested in seeing up and coming artists in lots of different and intimate gallery spaces. This locale has been coined London’s Contemporary Art District with a variety of galleries set side by side, all catering to those interested in contemporary art with an edgy flavour. Last month’s shows saw artists take a scaled-down approach, creating small paintings, sculptures and films with humorous overtones.

Once you have had your cultural fill of free art, why not pop round the corner to Broadway Market for great food and vintage goodies. If your in the mood for something a little more upscale, why not have a cocktail in our favorite East London locations, Bistroteque.
