LOVE IN THE TIME OF COVID

Lockdown Zine

 

​The past four months have been a strange and uncertain time. We sadly weren't able to open our doors as planned so instead, we sent out a call to artists to create an online publication to showcase the fantastic artwork people have created during lockdown. 

The pieces are a tribute to creativity and how we can turn to art in distressing times. We will be donating all of the proceeds from this project to Social Bite's Feed the Nation in Isolation fund and the Black Scottish Business Fund.

Update: 

The Crowd Funder for our "Love in the Time of COVID" project has now ended. You can still donate to the project here.

We have decided to donate all of the proceeds from the Crowd Funder to the respective charities. This includes the considerable printing and delivery costs associated with the zine.

 

We have had a smaller reprint which we will sell via our Store here. The proceeds from the copies sold on our site will go towards covering some of the printing costs. Copies sold in bookstores and elsewhere will continue to go towards Social Bite and the Black Scottish Business Fund.

ABOUT

The Alchemy Experiment is a new, inclusive exhibition and events space with an internal coffee house opening on Byres Rd. Find us here.

 

The unit consists of two floors totalling 1,185sq.ft of space and will host art exhibitions, talks, workshops, film screenings, live music, tuition, poetry and more. 

Our goal is to provide a platform for artists and creatives to exhibit their work, collaborate and express new interests in Glasgow's established art scene.  

If you are interested in using the space, please contact us here for more information on pricing and rates. 

THE SPACE

We completely stripped the space back to highlight the features of the original building. Exposing the brick walls, timber floor, iron columns and a tall pair of windows at the back which allows more natural light to come in, removing the low ceiling to show off the original cornicing and creating extra height.

We have also designed and built a stunning pink concrete coffee unit that harmonises with the existing materials as well as some clever joinery and splashes of colour to bring the whole space together.

Additional features such as a high-quality sound system, projector, adaptable furniture and the option for plasterboard to create a white-walled gallery effect ensure that the space is fully flexible and able to accommodate almost any type of event. The basement can be closed off for classes, screen printing facilities or used as an extension to the exhibition space. 

The diagram to the right highlights the ability to easily transform the space from coffeeshop to exhibition space.

AFFORDABLE ART AUCTION  

28.2.20

Earlier this year artists Molly Hankinson & Michaela McManus hosted an art exhibition and auction in aid of the Australian bushfire relief efforts. The night was a huge success as the pair raised over four thousand pounds for their efforts. The night featured music from Van Ives and DJ Caitlin as well as free beer thanks to Williams Bros. Despite not being ready to open the event acted as an "unofficial" opening night and was certainly one to remember.

ALCHEMY PREVIEW DAY

08.12.19

In December 2019 we hosted a small "Preview Day" to exhibit the space. This included a screen printing session with artist Hazel Blue, live mural painting and music. This was a great opportunity for people interested in the space to have a look at the progress and discuss future projects.
