Following the success of the recent Bodies exhibition I have been invited to exhibit my series of seven unicorn embroideries on black as a part of Cultivate’s next exhibition, Little Summer Benefits.

Little Summer Benefits is Cultivate Gallery’s two week long summer salon style show of smaller pieces of affordable art. No work is bigger than A3 (plus frame) and all work is on sale at no more that £200. Cultivate are anticipating a packed gallery full of work of all shapes and small sizes, walls alive with diverse contradictions, with careful blends of styles, thriving with a complete cross section of artistic creativity, contemporary mark making, complimentary flow and beautifully different pieces. There certainly will be something for everyone.

Explore some very reasonable priced art from artists who who have already benefited from exhibitions at Cultivate (as well as new artists showing for the first time). Artists who have shown their work over the nine months that the artist-run gallery space will have been running for by the time the show opens, as well as artist who will be showing as the team carry on cultivating new exhibitions and projects.

Cultivate expect the show to evolve over the two weeks as works leave the wall and new pieces arrive. 10% of the sales will go to support the gallery and help keep it alive (that’s the Little Benefits bit), 90% goes to the artists and keeping them alive and supporting their practice.
