Private view 31st July 5-7pm
A Cubitt Education exhibition
Those that can is an exhibition of art and design teachers from across Islington’s secondary schools and City and Islington College.
The show grew from Cubitt’s Secondary Art Network, which is a forum of secondary school art and design teachers. The group meets regularly to attend gallery visits, skills-sharing sessions and to discuss current issues within art education.
The works on display ranged from printmaking to installation and gave a rare collective insight into the private practice of art teachers. The majority of the artists involved regularly exhibit alongside their teaching work and maintain a strong art practice.
Whilst some artists chose to incorporate educational themes into their work, such as Phil Diggle, Head of Art at Highbury Grove School, who exhibited the motivational slogans that fill his classroom, others focused on unrelated themes, such as nature.
Exhibiting artists: Brin Thomas, Rob Coyle, Cathy Heath, Laura Adamson, Dionne Sparks, Bruce Ingram, Phil Diggle, Sarah McDonald, Johnny Lofts
Exhibition dates: 1-10 August 2014 Opening times: Wednesday-Sunday 12pm-6pm
