115 is a collaborative exhibition at the OXO Bargehouse in London formed by soon to be graduates from Fine Art, Contemporary Arts Practice and Creative Arts courses from Bath School of Art and Design.
Our fundraising team has been busy raising money through bake sales, clothes sales and film evenings which has already raised £1500. We are currently organising a Jazz night as well as an art sale for the future. Furthermore, the 36 Artists partaking in this project have invested £200 each to cover the venue hire. But we are still in need of your help! We are aiming for £3500 to cover extra expenses such as website set up, transport of artwork and providing a professional and enjoyable Private View evening.
Our show consists of students from BA Contemporary Arts Practice, BA Creative Arts and BA Fine Art. The exhibition has provided us with an exciting opportunity to work with a variety of multi-disciplinary practices. This show is a brilliant platform for us as recent graduates to display our work in a professional setting and give us the opportunity to show our work to a wider audience.
To be able to display our artwork at the fantastic venue of the Bargehouse along London's South Bank is a phenomenal prospect for us as artists. Situating our work within the creative hub of London alongside its vibrance and culture, will enable and challenge us to experience our art at a professional level.

Where will the money go?
We require funding in order to transport our various artworks from Bath Spa University to London, so a priority for our spending will be ensuring the safe travel of our work. Each artist is contributing £200 towards the hire of the building, extra funding will be used for the general upkeep of the building such as electricity and security. We will also need to fund our private view, ensuring we have an online catalogue for people to view our work, as well as refreshments and catering for the event. We are currently working on an online catalogue of the show but if we were to exceed our target we would be able to print a physical catalogue of works as well. Progress of our fundraising will be updated on our group Instagram page @115exhibition which will also feature up to date fundraising events.
