Venue Spotlight: The Sunday Painter
SLAM: Q — Who is The Sunday Painter and how did the gallery come about? The Sunday Painter: A — We established the gallery in 2008 whilst studying at Camberwell. It was originally housed in a tatty old pub function room (which we spruced up) for 6 or 7 months. We then built a straight-to-the-point white cube as part of Bold Tendencies III, and after that we took 7 or 8 months off whilst we worked on finding a more permanent location for the gallery. That turned out to be a 1st floor office in Peckham, which is now home to The Sunday Painter gallery and 12 artist studios. Q — What exhibitions have you held so far? A — Since opening the new gallery in May 2010, we gave Stuart Middleton his first solo exhibition and Howard Rogers his first exhibition in 6 or 7 years. We also exhibited Dark Matter - a group show that explored the monochrome, with work from Andy Jackson and Tom Hackney, and the well received but short-lived rooftop film screenings from Sam Austen, and Grace Schofield. Q — What do you have planned for 2011? A — We're excited to be working with a new group of artists for our February exhibition Ready Meal, in particular Ben Wheele whom we'll be working with on a solo exhibition for late 2011. We've got a couple of big group shows in the pipeline and our first 2 person exhibition, which is set to open in April 2011. Q — What's your favourite thing about Peckham? A — The Jamaican Patties, and of course the people that live and work here.

Review: Gravity / Apogee
Lewisham Arthouse, Deptford Having been drawn back to the Arthouse during Deptford X in 2010 for Natasha Rosling’s ambitious Ruffle installation (not to mention some specially commissioned Mark Titchner banners draped casually from it’s façade), it was a relief to finally see a work in this space that wasn’t dwarfed by the majesty of its baroque surrounds. Over the past couple of years the exhibition programme has gone from strength to strength, hosting both group and solo shows by emerging and established artists. The recent Gravity/Apogee by Sol Archer was testament to how a space with historic roots can be used to maximum effect by artists using new media. The Arthouse is increasingly becoming a platform for new graduates and emerging talent to show ambitious projects in a challenging and unique space. Look out for Jason Smith’s Excavation opening this week.
