Candid Arts Trust

If you’re in the mood for some art but aren’t prepared -perhaps understandably- to pay, then the Candid Arts Trust may be the thing for you.

Based in a Victorian warehouse in Torrens Street, behind Angel tube station, the Gallery is exhibiting the work of contemporary UK artists and designers for the whole of October- or, to be precise, every weekend this month.

Coming up this Friday is the Fashion, Textiles and Jewellery show, whereas next weekend it’ll be the turn of Furniture, Ceramics and Glass. Personally, I’ve been to the Graphics & Printmaking show and I can safely state that, while comparing to other fairs this is certainly “small potatoes”, it still retains a certain interest, particularly if you’re after a special Christmas present- though I’m sure you’re not, given it’s only October and there are plenty of other things to get excited about for a while more.

The Trust also runs a small caf

    I went to a couple of the exhibitions last year and thoroughly enjoyed them. I didn’t know they were back again – thanks for the heads up Edwina.

    The cafe is a fabulous place – and there are plenty of social entrepreneurs hanging out there. for anyone who wants to use some office space check out the The Hub on the same street.
