“We are such stuff as dreams are made on.” Prospero, The Tempest

Riverside Artists Group (RAG) is holding its main annual exhibition on the theme of ‘I Dreamt I Woke Up’. RAG Annual 2021 is taking place in the top-lit Central Space Gallery on Faroe Road in Shepherd’s Bush from 14-31 July (Wednesday - Sundays, 12-6pm).

The organisers say, “Here 33 artists will contemplate the awakening from the dreamlike times that have confronted us. For the visitor, the excitement of a real exhibition is intensified through the textures of paint and the feel of real-space sculpture and assemblage. With each artist providing up to four artworks that are also for sale, it is an opportunity for our increasing audience and collectors to enjoy a range of small to medium sized works. “

In case covid limits the physical exhibition and to broaden coverage for those not able to travel, it will be fully covered on the RAG website along with an audio presentation. RAG’s social media will also show artists’ images with postings through July.
