West Bank Gallery, 133-137 Westbourne Grove, W11 2RS
The West Bank Gallery will be hosting its final Collective art exhibition this April/May, before the stunning venue closes to be redeveloped into flats. This means that Collective 2015 will be the last ever exhibition of its kind at this venue.

Events in Notting Hill - Collective 2015 at the West Bank Gallery

An eclectic mix of work by a number of critically acclaimed artists will be exhibited – including pieces from photographers, ballpoint artists and sculptors. These include Kimberley Thomas, Robin Easterby, Marcus Sprigens, Georgi Liberty Lingwood, James Mylne, Raul Eberhard, Simon Stocken, Venetia Dearden, Lauren Baker and Claire Bentley-Smith. The exhibition will also feature a David Bromley original of Lily Allen that was painted for a front cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

The Collective is a social enterprise; the gallery is dry hired and paid for collectively by all the participating exhibitors, meaning that they utilise the space entirely and run it for themselves, by themselves.

Organiser Danny Rose, who has been co-curating the event for four years with artist Kimberley Thomas, says:

“It is a sad day for art and for London that this building will never host another exhibition. What makes our Collective so special is that we take the power from the gallery and put it into the rightful hands of the artist. We are incredibly proud to be working with the exhibitors at this year’s event. It looks set to be our best yet.

This eclectic set of artists, which counts illustrators, ballpoint photorealists a South American abstract artist and the jigsaw maker to the Queen among its figureheads, makes this exhibition a celebration of art befitting this venue’s historical association with culture.”
