We are delighted to invite you to our Autumn art exhibition of 2018 by artists from Studio Upstairs. This includes a Private View, an introduction by David Fried and studio artists about Studio Upstairs; and a talk by Morris Nitsun, starting from the following quote.
“every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and it's ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper."
(Isaac Bashevas Singer).
This will be followed by a large group.
Studio Upstairs was founded in 1988 by art therapist Claire Manson, and art therapist/ psychotherapist Douglas Gill, who recognised the need for people moving out of the psychiatric system, to have an opportunity to communicate their experiences through making art in a supportive community-based environment somewhat removed from the conventional clinical setting. It has been running for 30 years and now has 3 sites in London, Croydon and Bristol.
“For those of us who struggle to find a way to be with ourselves and others, this can be the breathing space we need”.
The working team are experienced HCPC registered art psychotherapists who are also artists. A number of them have also trained with the IGA.
