Open Mic & Art Show. 7pm, 3rd April 2014

This Thursday April 3rd from 7pm at The Windmill – 57 Cricklewood Broadway, Cricklewood, NW2 3JX

Featuring a new exhibition by emerging local artists Holly Stenhouse & Ranalph Kaine

Arrive early from 7pm to view the art, before the music starts at 8pm – with MC CALM CARL CHAMBERLAIN.  Performers should sign in from 7pm


Ranalph Kaine is a Kilburn based artist working in a range of media. His work deals with worlds both seen & unseen

The focus of Holly Stenhouse’s recent work reflects an ongoing engagement with surface and detail of everyday objects and artefacts. Having recently completed a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Barnet & Southgate College, Holly has continued to explore the use of traditional and non-traditional tools and materials and processes, in particular print-making and sculpture. The subject matter of her work concerns her attempt at recapturing an image or object by creating multi layers with a range of media and processes that obscures the original representation and becomes visually ambiguous. The pure physicality of manipulation and experimentation with mixed media is, for Holly, thoroughly absorbing and has been a stimulus for the development of her current work.

The exhibition continues through April. Any artists wishing to show their work in the future please email us for more details.
