My latest exhibition - Expansions - is now on in the Grapevine Bar at Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane, Ealing, W5 5BQ.

The exhibition builds on my previous exhibitions Luna and Moondance and continues the cosmic theme.

Some words about the lovely venue....

Questors Theatre is looked upon with great pride by its members and friends and greatly admired by those in the local and artistic community. It has a rich history that began over 80 years ago; throughout it has remained true to its ‘quest’ of being an independent and amateur theatre. Retaining the highest possible standards has helped Questors Theatre to become London’s most successful amateur theatre, hailed by The Observer as "the acme of amateur theatre".

Starting as a drama group in 1929 with just 17 members, the theatre's first production was 'The Best People' at Park Theatre in Hanwell. After a search for a permanent base they found a place to share with a local scout group. Questors remained in the prefabricated church on Mattock Lane after the scout group moved out and then raised enough money to purchase the land in 1952. Fundraising continued to be successful, and a new theatre complex was built and opened in 1964. It has been the home of art lovers and theatregoers ever since.

In its time, Questors has won many awards thanks to its contribution to the art world and the local Ealing community. Questors Academy is one of the largest youth theatres in the UK, with a passion for teaching theatre skills and sharing their extensive knowledge and theatre complex with students as young as six years old. 

Questors is always giving something back to the community, and it is no surprise that it has 600 active members and over 1500 in total who enjoy attending the theatre, the studio and the vibrant social club, run entirely by volunteers, The Grapevine Bar. 

15% of any sales that take place during the exhibition will be donated to The Questors - so all the more reason to pop along and support it!

The exhibition is being held in the Grapevine Bar, and the opening hours are:

Monday to Saturday 7.00-11.00pm
Sunday 12.00-2.30pm and 7-10.30pm
