We began at The Vyner Street Gallery on, Vyner Street featuring the works of graduates from the University of Huddersfield.
In this first picture we are sitting on a beanbag with some headphones of people giggling admiring the rest of the exhibition.
Andy Murray is Massive in Huddersfield, often when bands can’t make the hectic run of Freshers Week Parties the British Number One often steps in.
In this picture we are sitting on the 1st floor of the Vyner Street Gallery, to our left we gaze a Golden London Sky, to the right some rather fetching carpentry. Another audio installation we’re listening to morphed chants from a football match, the team in question is Leeds United. We’ve checked with the sports guys and there happens to be a popular soccer chant of ‘We All Hate Leeds’ while in the Art world we rather like them.
With several gold stars to their names, the London & Newcastle gallery on Redchurch Street is looking in solid position to take the crown in 2013 for the most encapsulation performance.
This month the whole gallery is dressed in the scribing of Steven Walter who has created loads of huge maps of London’s capital city. In them he’s tweaked with a few of the place names, added a few of his own and created a new city within the city.
The above etcha sketch was part of around 20 separate framed drawings mounted on the wall which shows London as the world. The city is surrounded by sea’s with Esher a mere island floating alongside.
This is a picture of many people looking at the collection of pictures of London World. Next we went to KK Outlet who have entered into a Lib-Lab Con-Dem coalition with Motto Books of Berlin so we stopped for a bit out front to see which party we’d swing for.
From First Thursday August you’ll see Motto in Berlin stocked from head to toe in KK Outlet creations so if you fancy a stay-cation on the continent then head to Germany where you’ll feel right at Hoxton.
This picture in their secret back room proved popular with many bands in particular the Ordinary Boys where lead singer Preston was seen gazing after spending an early evening drink at the Electricty Showrooms with his boys will be boys. We continued to follow him for the rest of the night and will tell you where he went next after you follow Friday.
First Thursday is a monthly celebration of Art across the East, its organised by Time Out and the Whitechapel Gallery. Over 150 venues take part, everyone is welcome and there are free drinks throughout so check back in on August One for some #FirstThursdays fun.
