Cafe Art is truly delighted to be invited to exhibit at this fantastic and popular local Cafe at Camberwell SE5. Located on the busy Camberwell Church Street, the House Cafe & Gallery is unique in that it not only serves a wide selection of breakfasts, lunches, snacks and homemade cakes, but also features a dedicated exhibition space to give artists the opportunity to interact with both the community and the contemporary art audience. We already have a drawing exhibited there, and can't wait to add more.  Do drop by to say hi to David, the super-friendly Manager, and enjoy the artworks while sipping your freshly brewed cup of...

Why wait for 65 years?

Posted by on Jan 25, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Why wait for 65 years?

It was reported in the Guardian today that London had to wait for 65 years for both of Van Gogh's Sunflower paintings to be displayed side-by-side at the National Gallery. The last time this occurred was back in 1947 when they were brought together for a Van Gogh exhibition at what is now Tate Britain. They should have asked Cafe Art.

All good things must come to an end :(

Yes - I'm afraid so. The unique 'A Tale of Two Cities - London:New York' at Southwark Cathedral ended today, after having flown half-way round the world!  We hope all those who managed to make their way to The Refectory to view them since the show opened  on 14th Dec 2013, enjoyed this special exhibition of paintings and works on paper created by people in both New York and London.  Not just for the beauty and artistry of each and every drawing, but the story behind how they perceived these two great metropolis. As always, Cafe Art can't just end the show without a bit of fanfare. A simple get-together of coffee, tea and cakes to celebrate and thank the...

Where do we start?

Yes! They did it! The vendors managed to sell out Cafe Art's 2014 calendars (apart from a few that we're keeping back as samples/promotion). That's almost 3,000 calendars. Woo Hoo! They worked their socks off over the festive period - come rain, shine or wintry conditions, weekdays and over the weekends. And always a smile on their faces! Where do we start with our thank you's, apart from the vendors themselves? Well, humongous thanks go to: i. the many markets who gave us space to sell them in, including Spitalfields Market, Piccadilly Market @ St James's Church, Camden Market etc and Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. ii.the corporations who believed and...

New Year = New Website

As more and more of you are now logging in using your iPads, Kindle, Android tablets, smartphones etc, we thought that it's about time we revamped the entire Cafe Art website so that it is fully compatible with all these various devices. We hope you like the new site, but please bear with us if you spot any errors/typos as it's still a continuous process in the coming months ahead.  Any feedback or comments would, of course, be greatly appreciated by emailing us at info@cafeart.org.uk All the very best again for 2014, and wishing you a happy, peaceful and healthy year ahead from all of us at Cafe Art ........
