Cafe Art has been given the Arts Market in Spitalfields once again! They will be there from Monday 9 September to Sunday 15 September, 10am to 5pm every day.
HSoA artist student Geraldine Crimmins
with be one of the main artists along with Michael Crosswaite and James Gray. All three of them have previously been homeless, but have started working for themselves. We are very keen to help them succeed.
Geraldine Crimmins started painting 10 years ago when she was in prison for a drug offence. She has since turned her life around and now mentors artists for Cafe Art as well as selling art and the MyLondon calendar.
Michael Crosswaite is one of Geraldine's mentees - he had a hugely successful art exhibition in Outpost Gallery in Islington and many of his comical paintings will be on sale during the week we are in Spitalfields.
James Gray has come a long way since he was sleeping rough. Now working part time for Cafe Art responsible to curating the art in cafes, he recently was in an exhibition in Gallery 54 in Mayfair, with many new paintings in his I Dream In Colour series.
