Bow Arts’ annual Bow Open Show showcases the talent and diversity of art being made across the charity’s artist community, selected by a guest curator. This year’s curator, visual artist Lindsey Mendick, invited submissions with her provocation “A Personal Treasure”, and has gathered work from 33 artists, various in media and all distinctly precious for sharing a treasured notion.

Laid out in a museum style under the gothic arches of the Nunnery Gallery, this year’s show spans painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, video, and millinery, with small objects collected in intimate groups in vitrines. The exhibiting artists include some of Bow Arts’ brightest stars and growing talent, and the show is a chance to explore some of the most exciting art being made across east London. Read more about the exhibition here.

The Nunnery Cafe will be open through the evening, serving a range of tasty snacks and refreshments. Grab a drink and bring a friend!
