Riverside Artists Group was formed in 1986 at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith. Its raison d’être is to support and promote practicing visual artists based in West London.
RAG is run by its artists. It provides a network to exchange ideas and information. Since its creation, RAG has organised many exhibitions in public and commercial spaces, and has instigated projects in the UK and abroad. In the group there is tolerance, through an acceptance of difference, that allows individuality to flourish. Many of RAG’s exhibitions have been self-selected leaving it up to the artist to take responsibility for what they show.
The criteria for this exhibition was of one new work measuring 50x40cm. There was no given theme for the show.The result has a feeling of integrity, while displaying a diversity of styles and media.Using paint, collage, photography and other materials, the artists reveal their view of life. In different styles and with different starting points the exhibition shows how we perceive our society and acknowledges the state of our world. These are original works that allow the viewer the opportunity to understand, appreciate and enjoy.
