For immediate release:

Turnaround - 11 exhibitions in 12 weeks
Turnaround is a series of 11 exhibitions in 12 weeks by members of the Waltham Forest Arts Club in a pop-up gallery in an all-windowed kiosk at the Wood Street Indoor Market February 4th to April 27th.

A group of over 30 artists has created a series of exhibitions in a shop at Wood Street Indoor Market from February 4th to April 28th 2012. The pop-up gallery will host 11 exhibitions in 12 weeks. The project is called Turnaround – referencing the hoped-for regeneration of the Market, the fast turnaround time of the exhibitions and also the idea of saying “come over here and take a look”. Because the space is completely made up of windows the title also alludes to seeing both the front and back of the hanging works. The artwork for the exhibition series includes painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance, video & sound works, installation, textiles, mixed media & crafts, bookarts, music and poetry.

The artists are all members of Waltham Forest Arts Club, a group of over 300 amateur & professional artists, writers, creatives and musicians based in Waltham Forest that meets monthly to organise exhibitions and community projects.

Because art regenerates and creates cultural and social opportunities this series of exhibitions has made for fantastic promotion of the Market and the Wood Street area as well as giving much needed exposure to the Arts Club and the individual artists.  20 other creative practices and cafes have joined the Market in this regeneration.  The place is buzzing with new-found energy!

Turnaround is a curation project by Julie Caves, Julian Beere and Helen Porter.
