A guerilla art exhibition will hit Stirchley on Friday evening.

Organised by local artist and photographer Harry Starling, Preclusion will take place in Whitmarley on Ivy Road in Stirchley. The venue is an old factory which has been taken over by Birmingham Social Centre.

There will be a collection of visual art from local and national artists and the exhibition will run for a week from 29th July to 7th August.

“The show is really just a demonstration of what can be done with abandoned spaces in a true guerilla exhibition style. And it’s meant to help showcase the upcoming talent in Birmingham that’s currently lacking a real outlet for display or exhibition, especially with We Are Birmingham closing.” said Harry Starling.

Exhibitors include local photographers such as Jane Baker and art from the likes of urban artist Carl Booth  and drawings from Ben Waddington.

More artists are welcome – contact Harry via email or on twitter or just pop down on Friday morning with your work.

Times: open daily 11am-9pm until Sunday 7th August – knock for entry
