For the first show of 2017, RISEgallery will be transformed into a radiant explosion of light and colour for its first ever light-only show, ‘The Light Within’.
The exhibition will present a cross section of who we feel represent a great selection of contemporary neon artists of our time; Lauren Baker, Lee Blackshaw, Jimmy Galvin and Illuminati Neon and Rebecca Mason.
From the strong in-your-face punk imagery of Illuminati Neon to Lauren Baker’s more personal aesthetic with handwritten neon signs, ‘The Light Within’ brings together some of the best examples of this medium. Each artist has a different approach to the art form, making it his or her own.
Expect cutting edge concepts and light art, fire eaters, DJs and some very special guests for the private view on Thursday 9th February 2017, 6-9pm.
10th February – 9th March 2017
Tuesday to Friday 10am-6pm, Saturdays 10am-4pm
RISEgallery, 7-9 St George’s walk, Croydon, CR0 1YH
