As a couple of artists surrounded by art folk living in London, we’ve all too often come across that age old problem preventing new artists from getting their work seen: The extortionate price of gallery space in Central London!
As part time staff at The Retro Bar we began eyeing up our lovely upstairs space and thought, ‘What a nice gallery this would make if we just added a few curtains, some spot lighting, and a hanging system!’
Then we hit the good old money problem again, this time though the bump felt a little more manageable: To transform the space all we need to raise is a one off sum of roughly £900 for materials and installation.
Once the space is up and running we hope to be able to play host to a variety of artists from all walks of life all across London and the UK for the grand price of absolutely sod all!*
So throw us your change, come to our fundraiser Retro Space Discoteque and let’s make this happen! For better visibility for the arts in London.
*Free to hire. We will charge commission on art sales to keep ourselves in bread and water. For this we’ll work on promotion, press, posters, and curation for each show.
