Skylark Summer Sizzle at gallery@oxo
Higos Chambos in the Sun by Trinidad Ball

Featuring more than 25 painters, print-makers and sculptors from Skylark, London's leading artist-run galleries, the show promises a huge variety of summer-inspired pieces, along with a series of interactive events to bring out the creative side of gallery visitors.

With exhibiting artists on hand every day, visitors will get the chance to chat to the experts about what's on show, techniques and inspirations.

The range of Skylark artists should mean plenty of conversation: whether you favour the photorealism of Trinidad Ball's exquisite prickly pears against piercing blue skies, the Pure abstraction of Eileen Martin's hot-palette oils, or the ice-cool beauty of Steve Yeates' recycled glass figures, there is definitely something for every visitor.

London's unique city atmosphere is celebrated in the bold, abstract citiscapes of Sara Sherwood and the more graphic lines of James Hobbs. Jo Hodgen captures childhood summers in her cheeky textural canvases of kids playing in rock pools, while Michelle Elwell's aluminium mounted digital flower prints have a fantastic romantic lyricism. Also featured are Gill Hickman's
Energy Cells, which explore the microscopic beauty of the human body in a riot of reds, oranges and golds.

Ben Mosley's bold football canvases offer visitors the chance to take home a souvenir of the agony and ecstasy of the 2010 World Cup or, for those whose thoughts are more attuned to summer loving, Sally Swingewood's series of bright kisses might be more appealing.

All art on show is for sale and can be taken away immediately, ..... and with prices for unframed work starting from £30 there's bound to be something for everyone.
