Launch Invitation: 03/10/13, 7pm
Stour Space – art gallery, studios and creative business venue opposite the Olympic Stadium, has opened a new on-site ‘SHOP’, based in the extraordinary community of Hackney Wick.
The bright, glass encased, industrial venue has become well-known for its exhibitions, markets and creative initiatives since its launch in 2009. Devoted to the promotion and production of creative enterprise, Stour Space is once again accepting applications to stock and profile the work of up and coming designers and makers.
Aiming to platform talent from London’s East End, Hackney Wick and beyond, SHOP stocks exclusive one-off pieces. Explore and buy new works in furniture, jewellery, sculpture, photography, art, books and more. SHOP also houses a wide range of art materials courtesy of The Wick Art Store.
A five minute walk along the canal from Victoria Park, Stour Space is a wonderful reason to venture East off the beaten city track. The renovated warehouse gallery also houses the stylish Counter café – a more than popular hangout for East End coffee enthusiasts. Visitors will be able to browse the wares on sale, peruse the art gallery, and then fill up on delicious brunch sat on the venue’s stunning riverside terrace.
SHOP is open daily 10am – 5pm.
Official Launch: 7-11pm, Thursday 3rd October 2013.
