Desperate to share their work and dismayed at the cost of exhibiting in central London, young artists are taking to the waterways of the capital.
Help is at hand in the shape of Barge Fiodra, a floating event space touring London’s canals. Graduate illustrator Anna Chase-Roberts lives and works on board and has offered the space to young artists as a floating art gallery.
The idea has been taken up enthusiastically by fellow graduates and young artists. “I didn’t take long to come up with a plan and enough artists to fill the barge,” says Anna.
The first event is a multi-artist show focussed on young up and coming illustrators (7th-12th December) and the second a solo show by London-based illustrator Salome Papadopoullos (14th-22nd December)
From 7-22 December Barge Fiodra will be moored on the Regent’s Canal at Granary Square, Kings Cross, N1C 4UZ (next to the Book Barge ‘Word on the Water’)
