'ART IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS...'

'ART IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS...'
Cultivate Vyner Street

21 December 2011 - 3 January 2012

Opening Christmas party private view: Tuesday 20th December 2011, 6-9pm


Our famous Art Is For Life slogan was created by Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive, in 1978 but is still as relevant today.

The longstanding campaign aims to raise awareness of the consequences of treating art as gifts or toys. Every year hundreds of thousands of children plead for the latest fad or top toy on the market, only to discard them a few weeks after Christmas when the novelty wears off. Unfortunately, the same perception is also apparent with art. We are continually seeking to change this.

While everyone else is busy flogging art for Christmas, we're carrying straight on through to the new year with a group show, with the Cultivate Christmas party and lots more.

Featuring artists: COS AHMET, CARL CASHMAN, ELLIE GREEN, ELLA GURU ARTIST, CARNE GRIFFITHS, TIM GOFF, INTERNATIONAL NOBODY, ANGELA BUFFONI, BEX MASSEY, MARIA SLOVAKOVA, GAYE BLACK, MADELEINE STRINDBERG, ROXANE GRANT, MIKE MACKENNEY, JONI BELARUSKI, SHARON REEVES....

Remember now, "Art is for life, not just for Christmas".

Cultivate, Vyner Street
Corner of Vyner Street & Mowlem Street
London E2 9HE
Open:  Thursday - Sunday: 11.30am - 6.00pm, or by appointment
