Dolly Mixtures is Notting Hill Housing’s biennial art exhibition, the fourth exhibition to present artwork from their tenants.

About

Dolly Mixtures – cockney rhyming slang for pictures – plays on the Nunnery Gallery’s east end location and the roots of the original Londoner.

Dolly Mixtures presents work by tenants of all ages from hugely varied backgrounds, all of whom express themselves through art. The exhibition covers many genres in painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and installation, showcasing a diversity of styles and approaches. Many of the artists create to relax or escape, using creativity as a response to life’s difficulties and as a vehicle to express themselves in an increasingly isolating and lonesome world. Other artworks tell the stories of the makers themselves and the relationship they have with London.

Notting Hill Housing celebrates partnerships with The Gate, supporting people with learning difficulties, The Mildmay Collective, Cubitt Arts, Mary Ward Centre and SMART, helping people  recover from mental illness.

Curated by Mandy Worster, artist and Notting Hill Housing’s Volunteer Coordinator.
