Friday 13th December 6-9pm Elephant & Castle, London
"Hotel Elephant Gallery launches its new shop and coffee bar on Newington Causeway, SE1.
In this new space Hotel Elephant Gallery will provide a platform and shop window for Southwark artists and designer-makers, giving them the opportunity to sell their work in their neighbourhood. We will also be including works by makers from outside the borough. Hotel Elephant Gallery hopes this will forge the beginnings of a diverse network of artists and makers from across London enriching the cultural life of the Elephant and Castle.
The shop will be open daily, where visitors can enjoy a coffee, browse and purchase artworks. This intimate space will host a range of events catering for the local residents, students and newcomers to the area; complimenting and running alongside the programme of exhibitions and events held in Hotel Elephantâ€™s 15,000sqft gallery space, also located on Newington Causeway."
"Hotel Elephant is an Art Gallery, Project and Studio Space. Established in late 2009 as a creative space for an individual Artist, it has grown with the desire to bring creativity to the area. Hotel Elephantâ€™s relocation to the midst of the Heygate Estate sees the continuation and development of Hotel Elephantâ€™s dedication to enrich the cultural life of the Elephant and Castle."
