In its debut jaunt outside of London, the Vending Machine Art Gallery III is being hosted by seafront music venue and cocktail bar Patterns in Brighton this April.
An exhibition and affordable art project focused on bringing art out of traditional gallery spaces and making it more accessible, prints are on display in the venue and available to purchase from the machine from just £20 a pop.
Working with a diverse collection of over 35 emerging local and London based artists, the return of the Vending Machine Art Gallery showcases artistic interpretations around the theme Views to audiences outside of the typical gallery demographic.
More on the theme from the curators Tom and Hannah: 'Brighton, the city that celebrates individuality and positivity welcomes everyone's views. Inspiration can come from anything from politics to sexuality or even something as simple as the view of the sea from your bedroom window.
Whether you look out or look down. Come see how our artists for The Vending Machine Art Gallery in Patterns, Brighton see the world.'
Recently shortlisted for Brighton Artist of the Year. 'A painting begins in so many places, whether its the seaside, a market stall, a lido, a swimming pool, local allotments or the landscape on a road trip. It's not what it is in a practical sense, but the composition, shape and colour that excites me. Its about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, and capturing that in a painting.' Sophie Abbott
