Hot on the heels of the nation’s love affair with contemporary art, Brent will be breaking down the barriers to the art world by launching its very own third Brent Affordable Art Show, just in time for the festive season.

Featuring work from emerging talent as well as established local artists, the Affordable Art Show will give visitors the opportunity to enjoy and purchase an eclectic array of artwork, from painting, sculpture to photography, to prints…etc. Many pieces on show will carry a price tag of under £100, making this the perfect hunting ground for the “next big thing”, or a chance to purchase an original and unique piece from a talented artist.

The exhibition will showcase some of Brent’s wealth of artistic talent, and visitors are encouraged to explore and engage with this new art in a creative and relaxed and environment. The Brent Affordable Art Show was conceived in order to inspire new audiences to familiarise themselves with contemporary art in the area, and to encourage the possibility of purchasing and collecting the art itself.

This is a unique opportunity to explore the hidden art of one of London’s most vibrant and culturally diverse communities.

Can you see us?
The College of North West London has been working with Brent Learning Disability Partnership with students who have learning disabilities and a wide range of learning difficulties enabling them to learn new skills, increase vocational competences and gain qualifications.

The Creative Crafts Skills Group, based at Stonebridge Day Centre, has worked with College lecturers, Lula Couling-Barreneche, Mary Anne Vaughan and Alison Rose to produce work collectively for the ‘Can you see us?’ exhibition. All the work demonstrates the range of techniques and skills learned, such as: collage, papier-mâché, printing, felt and paper-making and decorative effects.

The students have created work expressing their individuality and imaginative reflections on the theme of identity – Can you see us?
