Miquita Oliver came down to the launch on Thursday and loved one of Joe Rush’s sculptures so much that she scooped it up for cool price tag of 10 k. Miquita will be loaning the piece back to the gallery for the duration of the show so not to worry – the collection is still complete – for the time being………………!

The Shutters were lifted on the gallery at 7pm Thursday to a brilliant crowd of artists, press, friends and family. The building was reverberating with oohs and ahhs, with all ages loving the vast array of art on show. Thank you to everyone that came and we hope that you had a great time. Just a small reminder that everything in the gallery is for sale and price lists are available from press office – email@example.com
Kerri Davenport-Burton is one of the brilliantly talented installation artists on the second floor of Behind the Shutters. Originally an award winning film director Kerri has turned her hand to Art.
This installation is inspired by Innocence, although no ordinary take on the naive, the exhibition will push your perception and test your morality. Kerri creates an experience, which probes modern ideas of morality, perception and social change using film, music and experimental sound techniques.
A series of constructed rooms on the second floor each entered via a small passageway ‘The Journey of John ”Fun” Fare’ is no banal trip.
Viewers walk through the subconscious as they navigate these experiences.
Coming up in Nov is the launch of Ben Rayner’s Book ‘Little Buddie’ A private collection of Dogs large and small that Ben has come accross on his travels. How you make images of day to day Dogs interesting, edgy and addictively page turning I don’t know – but he has managed it! However with a list of clients that include Arena, Dazed, Vogue and having a flick through his website its little wonder.
Private view is on the 4th Sept with the exhibition then running until the following week.
We have just had pictures through of the ‘coffee bike’ – this will be the centrepiece of the cafe area at muTATEBRITAIN making all our hot drinks..!!!

The lovely Ruby Blues, ‘delinquent showgirl’ and mistress of Glastonbury Festival’s Trash City will be hosting The Performance Salon on the second floor on Saturdays with a whole host of performance artists.
