Riverside Art Exhibition at the Brunel Museum

Review Riverside Exhibition - Brunel Museum

Review Riverside Exhibition - Brunel Museum

Riverside is an exhibition of the work of 16 artists who we support at the Riverside Centre in Bermondsey, showing work created specially for the show on the theme of the river.

It is taking place at the Brunel Museum by the river on Railway Avenue, just a short walk away from Rotherhithe Overground station – a unique venue at the entrance to the shaft to the first tunnel to run under the River Thames.

The paintings, drawings and sculptures on display were created by service users of the Riverside Centre with the support of its artists Gail and Justine, and are in very different styles that reflect the diversity of the artists taking part.

Works include David’s very colourful paintings of Tower Bridge - two of which sold as soon as the exhibition opened! Peter’s black and white drawing French Revolution, depicting a guillotine, has a much darker feel to it.  Adora’s colourful painting Brunel Tunnel accurately portrays people walking through the tunnel that the Brunel Museum celebrates. It is one of many images of London and Brunel in the exhibition making it very relevant to its location

Gail, who organised the exhibition, says: “The artists at The Riverside work with their individual abilities, personal expression, style and approach. In all their work there is a direct and unique sense of observation or exploration, which is full of character and individuality and can lead to a visual or tactile poetry.”


Half of the money from the sales will go to the artists with a learning disability and the other half will be donated to The Camden Society. So do go along to this wonderful show in this very interesting area of London. You may find a little gem for your own art collection!


The exhibition runs until the 31st May open daily 10am to 5pm
