Plumstead’s Evening of CONceptual Art

At The Volunteer

130 Plumstead High Street, Plumstead, London SE18 1JQ

Monday 4th September 7 – 9pm


Plumstead Needs You – Don’t let her down!!!!!!

A Play on Words

The American artist Sol LeWitt is quoted as saying that “All of the significant art of today stems from Conceptual art.”

Whether you think this is true or just consider it banal rubbish we believe that it’s time that Plumstead explored the idea and so Plumstead’s own Evening of Conceptual Art was born.

When looking at Art we have all said on occasions, “I could do better than that” and now is the time for YOU to prove it.

We are asking any Plumstead resident to bring along their Conceptual artwork(s) to The Volunteer, between 6.30pm and 7pm on Monday 4 September. Then from 7pm you will be asked by the former and yet to be replaced, Queen of Plumstead, to explain your work to the gathered throng. All you need is an idea, concept or cause that you feel strongly about and objects to arrange or assemble to get your idea over to the public on the night.

There will be no prizes on offer but, of course, it will give you the opportunity of selling your creation to the serious art collectors, who could well be in the pub that evening.

Anyone wishing to take part please email us at to book your spot in the pop up exhibition space.

Let’s prove that Plumstead is at the cutting edge of art in London and not just a collection of Betting Shops and used mattresses. That is, unless they form part of your artwork.
