Several of town's talented artists - including Kev Munday, Sian Storey & Bill Thorpe - stage ambitious group show
12:42pm Monday 20th January 2014 in Leisure News
SOME of the town’s talented artists are involved in an exciting new group exhibition.
All Our Own work, featuring Chineham’s Kev Munday, Bill Thorpe, XWWX, Bex Parker, Sian Storey, Kazland, Funns, Shaun Donohoe, Kev Winter and Katie Smith, will be open to the public daily at 2 Clapham House in Festival Place (opposite the Discovery Centre) and at 14 Hanover Buildings in Southampton.
The work will be on show from February 1 until February 28.
All Our Own Work is an ambitious group show which has been organised, curated, marketed, installed and staffed entirely by the artists, with all of the money from sales going directly to the makers.
The exhibition showcases work in a wide range of styles and mediums, with all of the artists sharing the fact that they reside in Hampshire.
With work available to buy and take away on the day, the exhibitions will be changing regularly throughout the duration of the show.
The shops have been kindly supplied for the pop up exhibitions by Moderna Art.

*Kev Munday will also open his free entry solo exhibition The Way I See Things at The West End Centre in Aldershot on February 3.
Kev, who is 27, started his creative career painting graffiti with friends. A decade on, his work still carries the raw energy of street art, blended with an intelligent graphic edge, gained through producing illustrations for clients including Walt Disney, Fracture Skateboards and Monster Energy Drink.
His unique creations have adorned merchandise products including furniture, skateboards and clothing and his art has been exhibited all over the world, in venues including The Southbank Centre, Summers Place Sculpture Gardens and Selfridges Ultralounge. His work has received praise from worldwide design press, including features in Elle Decor, Computer Arts and The Evening Standard.
Having recently been named as one of Artfinder’s top 10 artists of 2013 and collaborated with wallpaper giant Graham & Brown, Kev Munday is looking forward to many more years of watching paint dry.
Entry is free. The exhibition runs until February 28.
