“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase their knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace's definition of the aims of poetry, either to please or to educate” [Salon (gathering). Wikipedia]
We're asking people to arrive at 4:30pm (both artists and interested parties) so we can discuss the work that has been presented.
Each artist will spend about 10-15mins on each piece then follow up with casual discussion during the private view.
There are two shows opening the same evening and the PV starts at 6pm.
We would like to encourage anyone working in video to submit as soon as possible as we are putting together a show reel and would like to include more work. For anyone who would like to submit please send a vimeo link (w/password if necessary) or send a .mov file via www.wetransfer.com
Also, the space is excellent for performance so anyone interested in doing so, please let us know.

Sophie O'Neill studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, then went on to complete a BA at Central St. Martin's College in Graphic Design. Her move to study Design was prompted by the feeling that it could provide a practical way to earn a living as a creative practitioner. Inevitably O'Neill returned to her first love – the world of Fine Art. Over the past two yearsCoreArts has been the catalyst that has enabled her to explore herartistic potential and develop as an artist.In Concept PaintingO'Neill experiments with the borders between figurative portrait painting, abstraction and the ideas that link the two.

Licensed bar, proper community vibe COREARTS:Forging its own path in largely uncharted territory between arts centre, community space and commercial art gallery, CoreArts is first and foremost a creative hub with strong links to the local community. CoreArts is run exclusively by practicing artists and musicians, for artists and musicians who have, or have had, severe and enduring mental health issues. Artwork or performance at CoreArts is not judged or displayed on these terms. Pigeon-holes that categorise into ‘outsider’ or ‘therapy’ are strongly avoided. Individuality and creativity are respected and nurtured; artists are encouraged to develop their own strategies. Often, professional artists, musicians and writers share the same wall, stage and page as CoreArts members, without hierarchy. The results are exciting, refreshing and challenge both artistic and mental health preconceptions and clichés. This show, with a host of exhibitors including many highly respected professionals from all areas of the arts, reinforcing and supporting CoreArts philosophy, is an introduction to the pioneering approach that CoreArts has pursued since its conception some 20 years ago.
