All My Best Friends...

Tonight is the next installment in Art Is Proof's continually brilliant screen printing exhibitions.
This is ripped from their events page on Facebook because I'm lazy...

A pop up shop and gallery of affordable art, screen prints, books, zines and more from a selection of our favourite independent illustrators, designers and makers, curated by the Art is Proof Press. Featuring work by Mark Pavey, William Exley, Leah Stewart, Charlie Duck, Hannah Waldron, Andy Forshaw, It's Nice That, Owen Richards, Jiggery Pokery, Jess Bonham, DIY Couture, Fever Zine, Shebang, Francesca Bunny Williams, We Are The Friction, Sally Hancox, Chloe Bell, Sarah King, and more!

The Art is Proof Press is a small collective of designers and illustrators. For the past two years we've put on annual exhibitions of screen printing and print sales, and this time we're getting all our favourite creatives together for an ace show in a brand new venue.
We're taking over Superette, a new exhibition and events space just off Brick Lane in the heart of East London for 2 weeks. Run by Leona Baker, we're excited to be the very first people invited to host a show in the new Superette!

Come on down to our opening night on Thursday 18th March 7-9pm for drinks, music and nice things to look at (and buy!)
