On April 8th 2018, The Show Room officially turned a year old. We celebrated this by organising our very first pop-up community art exhibition which took place last week Friday and Saturday. The 2 day event was well attended, even the sun made an appearance. Guests turned up to see the fantastic work of activist and artist Mark McGowan aka ‘The Artist Taxi Driver’, local photographer Tim Bourne, ‘kaleidoscope mosaic’ designer Edda Dirks and Artbox – a collective of artists with learning disabilities. We also featured Liz Atkin’s Compulsive Charcoal series and Ealing Mencap’s very own Matthew Coulam, whose depiction of Brent Lodge Park, ‘Ryk Shrine’ and ‘Soul Mining’ garnered quite a lot of attention.

The team really enjoyed the event and are looking forward to organising other events as well as hosting artist Edda Dirk for this year’s BEAT (Borough of Ealing Art Trail).
