Northern Line Exhibition
The Gallery Highgate Literary & Scientific Institution Pond Square N6 6BS
Start date | 12 November 2021
End date | 25 November 2021
For their next HLSI exhibition ‘The Northern Line’, East Finchley Open Artists are creating images that relate to a Northern Line station of their choice. Each work will respond to the chosen station’s name, and artists have already selected a wide range of Northern Line stations for inspiration including Colliers Wood, Oval, Angel and High Barnet. Expect some interesting interpretations and commentary! The exhibition will comprise an exciting variety of wall-hung work including paintings, pastels, prints ceramics, glass, textiles and automata.
All artists have prepared new works specially for the exhibition. Among them, Pat Marvell has created an exciting glass piece titled ‘White hot embers in Colliers Wood’ which was originally the site of charcoal-making kilns. Laura Fishman has made an abstract acrylic painting, ‘Golders Green, Green to Gold’, exploring the richness of greens and yellows mingling with swirls of red which hint at the richness of the foliage of the nearby Golders Green Park. Meanwhile, Cathy Burkinshaw has chosen Woodside Park as one of her inspirations. She has many fond memories of the station “It was so pretty when we first moved to Woodside Park, surrounded by trees with a really large tree in the forecourt.” How times have changed!
Here are a few of the exciting interpretations of the Northern Line theme.
