Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water
A New Exhibition of Paintings by Valerie Irving
Opening 23 October 2014
In Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water Valerie Irving records a fascination not only with the subtle varieties of surface according to weather and light, the movement of barges and wildlife, but also with the looming architectures - built at different times and for different purposes - that fringe this section of water from Broadway Market to Mare Street.
'... this artificially created product of the industrial revolution, built for commerce, now provides a space for nature in a city, many of whose rivers now flow underground...' - Valerie Irving.
Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water will run from October 23 to December 24.
We regularly hold events at our bookshop such as readings and book signings.
EVENT CANCELLED... Art Rules! (And How To Break Them): Book Launch with Mel Gooding + Redstone Press
Tuesday, 25 November 2014 at 6.30pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED... WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE
You are invited to celebrate the launch of Art Rules! (And How To Break Them) - a new box set that demystifies modern art - with author Mel Gooding and arch-collaborator Redstone Press on Tuesday 25 November. A great fan and long-term stockist of Redstone Press and its idiosyncratic backlist (Psychogames, anyone?), The Broadway Bookshop is delighted to be involved in the arrival of their latest creation. The event, of course, is free. Drinks will be served from 6.30 p.m.
From the publisher:
It is one of the great liberating ideas of modern art that everyone is capable of making art. But all too often a mechanical education stifles the creative impulse, induces anxiety and represses the imagination. ART RULES! offers a completely new key to enjoying and understanding art by showing how it is made. The box contains: 42 illustrated, interactive cards with images and informative texts and an original 64-page book MODERN ART: INSIDE OUT with chapters on the role of critics, drawing, art and nature and much more.
Signed copies of Art Rules! will be on sale. Price £19.95.
