Deptford Stories is more than an exhibition mounted by some very talented artists from the local scene. It is in fact a small arts festival celebrating the lives and legends of Deptford . It launched on Friday 31st October & and will continue until 16th November as follows: Thursd (6th) 3-5pm, Friday (7th) 10-12pm, Sat. (8th) 2-4pm and Thursd (13th) 4-6pm, Sat. (15th) 2-4pm and final day Sunday (16th) 2-4pm. Bringing together art, theatre, music and history of the past, present and future of Anthology Deptford Foundry, the festival will take place in the empty warehouses and workshops of the former site of Arklow Road Trading Estate.
Curated by experimental arts space, Harts Lane Studios, and produced by Greenspace on behalf of Anthology; Deptford Stories will be an eclectic array of mixed-media installations, sculpture, prints, light displays, textiles and tiling. From James Capper and Katie Surridge’s imposing industrial and structural pieces to Cedric Christie’s iconic light-boxes and Margot Sanders’ site-specific painting portraying the frail beauty of human bonds, the artwork is varied and engaging. The event is organised in collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London.
