STRAY was founded in 2011 with the unifying aim to 'stray' beyond visual and idealogical comfort zones and to promote the artists' work to a wider public audience. The collective artists are based around Cambridge and London and have exhibited as 'Stray' in East Anglia and in London. Their exciting show kicks off with a public launch party on Friday 13 September from 6-8pm with the exhibition running to 28 September.
Building on their success at The Undercroft Gallery in 2016, guest curator Sue Law delights in hinting at the bigger and better show she’s got planned. “I loved the way reknowned Norwich artist Gennadiy Ivanov curated our last show and will be exhibiting his work again this year. The range of work planned is both dynamic and fully engaging. Artists featured include specialists in sculpture, textile art, painting, print, video and public interactive artworks – it really will be visually spectacular as well as a lots of fun”. One member of STRAY is working on a Kimono Cat Walk Show; an extravaganza of colour, with billowing hand-emblazoned textiles – drama and the WOW factor guaranteed. This exhibition promises some surprises as well as being a treasure-trove of artwork rarely seen displayed together in one place. It promises to be visually spectacular as well as lots of fun!
