S1 Studios artists are launching the first annual S1 Studios General Store, a temporary artist-led shop selling a wide range of affordable artworks by emerging and established artists in support of S1 Studios.
S1 Studios General Store will occupy the main reception at the heart of S1 Artspace which will be transformed into a pop-up shop presenting for sale a variety of new and affordable artworks, limited editions and unique work by studio holders, local artists and S1 Artist Patrons in order to raise funds in support of the studios.
The General Store will include a pop-up cafe hosted by Tamper Coffee and will present varied daytime and evening events including Saturday film screenings such as Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present, A Pub Quiz, and Festive Parties.
Artists who have contributed artworks include Simon Bill, Simon and Tom Bloor, Tim Etchells, Sara MacKillop, Haroon Mirza, Paul Morrison, Ryan Mosley, Giles Round and Sarah Staton.
S1 Studios will also launch their first collective Print Portfolio which presents limited edition artworks created by eleven studios artists based at S1 Artspace. The Print Portfolio has been produced in a limited number of 50.
Each week during December the S1 General Store will transform as we present rotating mini exhibitions by a selection of S1 Studios artists and special pop-up guest stores from Hantu Collective, Article, and The Designers Republic. Items will be available for purchase for one week only.
Each Saturday from the 8th of December Tamper Coffee will be hosting a very special pop-up café providing the best coffees this side of Yorkshire at S1 Artspace.
