Threesome & 3×3 Finnisage

Threesome & 3×3 featuring Lots Road Group artist Sarah Jane Moon and two artist friends – Roxanna Halls and Sadie Lee – at New Art Projects are coming to an end this week.

The Private View early in January was full to bursting and since then they’ve had a number of significant reviews in Studio InternationalWallpaper*BUSTAll About Shipping and DIVA magazine. They’ve been interviewed for Radio DIVA by Rachel Shelly, been thoroughly grilled in an in-depth Q&A with Curator Anna McNay (now printed online), hosted a Be Smart About Art networking event and the work has also been the impetus for some wonderfully evocative new poems by writers Julia Bell, Sogol Sur & Dr Laura Bridgeman.

The exhibitions continue this week until 3rd March and the artists would like to go out with a ‘Pop’ and so warmly invite you all to join them at their Finnisage Closing Event from 5 – 7pm this Saturday. All welcome. Please feel free to bring a bottle of your favourite tipple to toast all those who have helped along the way.

They also have an event on Friday 2nd run by the luxury lesbian event company HFL that promises to be something quite special. The infamous & glamorous Stav Bee will be serving up a specially concocted Threesome cocktail based on the artists’ unique tastes. Come & mingle with other professional women from across all industries & chat with the artists & curator. Tickets available via hfl.events.

Queer Artists’ Versions of Themselves, Salisbury
‘In Your Face’ is an exhibition of differing approaches to portraying a sense of self and interpreting identity and sexuality. It coincides with this year’s 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act, the landmark moment when private homosexual acts between men over 21 in England and Wales were decriminalised in 1967.
Sarah’s self portrait ‘In The Studio’ 2015 will be on display along with others by various artists including Roxana Halls, Matthew Stradling and Michael Petry.
Curated by Sadie Lee, the exhibition opens at the Salisbury Arts Centre on Saturday 23 September and runs until 4 November (10am – 3pm Tues – Sat).
