Hand Maid, our latest exhibition brought together strong and challenging body of art work all about the feminine.
After having an amazing turn out for the Hand Maid exhibition, for those who didn’t make it down to Hoxton Arches, here is some reminiscing. Striking artists such as: Holly Rozier, Laura New, Sal Jones and Jane Fairhurst, came together to explore what it is to be female, feminism and to celebrate International Women’s Day with Sweet ‘Art. With vagina cup cakes and an exhibition which was accessible to everyone over the course of 5 days, weplaned for Hand Maid to be our most ambitious event to date, continuing our ethos of making art accessible to all, and I think we did just that!
The private view night was a huge success! Inviting over 300 guests into the Hoxton Arches Gallery in Shoreditch, where artists, family, friends and enthusiasts could be seen admiring, interacting and, for some, buying the influential and diverse range of work the Hand Maid exhibition had to offer. There has been an endless stream of positive feedback both during the private viewing and after, which makes all the hard work worth it for us here at Sweet ‘Art!
“I really loved taking part in Hand Maid, an amazing collection of art celebrating International Women’s Week. Not only was the art of an incredibly high quality, the whole exhibition was made easy for all of us artists chosen to take part, as Sweet ‘Art handled every part the exhibition with such professionalism. The opening night was rammed with folk and the atmosphere was so friendly and inviting. I look forward to exhibiting with you in the future, you’re a fabulous organisation! Well done everyone!” (Jane Fairhurst)
