New Exhibition by BowHaven’s Art+ Group…
Private View: Thurs 16th August 12-4:30pm
Exhibition Runs: 9th – 31st August
This is BowHaven’s Art+ Group’s second exhibition at Muxima and we are excited to showcase the development of the group and the work of their artists. BowHaven’s Art+ places an emphasis on the individual creative journey and every member is encouraged to develop their own unique voice, for some this is abstract painting and for others it is artwork based on their life experience.
BowHaven is a local, community based, mental health charity situated in the heart of Tower Hamlets, and a stone’s throw away from the famous Roman Road market. We have been running a successful Mental Health Wellbeing and Recovery Centre since 2003, and our way of working is completely person centred. This means that there is a high level of focus on choice, self-expression, support, opportunity, positive ownership and responsibility. Along with One to One support we run a series of weekly groups that include creative groups such as Art+. This year celebrates the 4th birthday of Art+ and we are very proud of the growing confidence and self expression of members. Each piece of art is unique and reflects well that individual journey but when brought together the work sings in unison. Because this is a Mental Health context, care is taken to provide a therapeutic space that also offers a dynamic and experimental approach to creativity. Our group has approximately 17 regular members many of whom are exhibiting here.
