Established in 1893, Woodford & Wanstead Photographic Society is one of the oldest clubs in the UK and in 2018, will be celebrating their 125th birthday.

In the build up to next year, and as part of the Wanstead Art Trail fortnight, WWPS are exhibiting at 2 venues. The 1st will be at Wanstead Underground Station from the 5th September and will show a wide variety of members work.

Then on Sunday 17th September, WWPS will be exhibiting at the Wanstead Festival on Christchurch Green. Again, a wide and varied example of members work will be on display.  Club members will also be around to answer questions about the display, the club and will be happy to offer advice on how improve your photography.

In addition, members of the public are invited to enter a free prize draw by selecting their favourite photograph from the Wanstead Festival display. The 1st randomly selected entry will be offered that photograph, framed, as a gift.
Not only that, a 2nd free draw at the Wanstead Festival is offered to those whose hobby is photography. (Sorry, minimum age 18 years). They need to correctly identify 3 objects and if their entry is the 1st randomly selected then one year’s free membership to WWPS is the prize.
WWPS is a very friendly club and this will be the perfect time for anyone thinking of joining  to ask for details.

As an artist I am inspired by so many things, related to my life, especially current affairs, religion, unusual happenings, music and fun Stuff, especially the beach. I often have an idea and from that idea several further ideas unfold. I always have my camera on me and sketch book too. For sketching I love to use charcoal. I can then recall images and work from them.

Cows that once used to wander round the local streets have been depicted in jolly narrative paintings at Cafe Chicchi. A nostalgic trip for some, a surreal experience for the unaware! On a more sober level, watercolours of Wanstead House & St Mary's can be seen at Petty Son & Prestwich.

Eliyah is involved  in a wide range of community-based projects and create commissioned work for organisations, charities and individuals. Much of the artist's work is based around helping children with SEN as she strongly believe in inclusion, and aims to promote this within schools and the local community through creative services.
Being part of the Wanstead Art Trail is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen the ties between the local community. Artists should regularly come together and collaborate to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Eliyah encourages anyone else who has something to offer to get involved in this community project and to promote inclusion within the art trail. Through Eliyah's collaborative effort positive changes can be made within the local area such as building a thriving art culture.
Where you will be exhibiting:
Eliyah's Solo exhibition ‘In search of Gold’ will feature twenty-five artworks at Valentines Mansion. This exhibition explores the artists own personal journey battling with health conditions and the feeling of vulnerability.
Stow Brothers will be exhibiting seven original artworks from the 'Portraits' series. Eliyah challenged herself to produce 150 portraits within the short timeframe of 16 days.
The ‘Gold Standard’ exhibition will be displayed at St. Gabriel’s church. This series exposes racism in society, depicting how society can collectively build bridges towards peace and unity.
Eliyah's exhibition at Images & Frames will be a collection of seven prints taken from the original 'Sketchbook project' which is part of the Brooklyn Museum, NY.

We collaborate in our work with various materials and up-cycle re-using glass and tiles. Our mirrors can date from as far back as the thirties. And so we create new pieces of work which explore and reflect nature in all her forms. We believe in playing our small part in helping to sustain our beautiful planet when creating our mosaics and stained glass pieces.

I love  the landscapes of East Anglia and Essex. I paint places which give a sense of peace and stillness, in which time seems to stand still. I was initially inspired and encouraged by the art teachers at Wanstead High School, then trained at Sir John Cass School of Art, gaining a Diploma in Illustration. My work has been shown at: The Association of Illustrators Gallery, Charlotte Street, W.1.

I love creating cartoons and painting murals and since my last time on the trail in 2015, I have been very lucky to have won two national art competitions. Art is my happy thing - I love doing it and sharing it. Always delighted to get my hands on some felt tips and let my paint brush dance away.

Read more on this artist
Patrick Michalopoulos
Patrick Michalopoulos focuses on process and gestural mark-making to build up layers and accretions of paint that begin to ‘speak back’ to the viewer. Working across the abstract-figurative divide the artist attempts to produce an imaginative ‘language’ that draws the viewer into ‘looking’ and ‘thinking’ journeys. Slow and ambiguous, these journeys often have as their starting point strong memories or emotional reactions that the artist uses to propel compositions and images into being. As the compositions advance they develop their own type of picture-logic that in turns produces new images and stories.

I love bangles. Always have. Don't get me wrong, I love other jewellery too, but unlike pendants and ear-rings, you can see them, touch and play with them, wear multiples and listen to the music they make as the jangle together. But, with small hands and wrists, most were too big. By chance a few years ago I saw a beginners evening jewellery-making class, signed up, made a copper ring the first week, a spinner ring the second week and in the third week set out to make my very first bangle. I'm now in the early stages of setting up an online shop, Fridays Child Jewellery. The saying goes "Friday's Child is loving and giving" - I'm hoping people will enjoy giving and receiving my jewellery as much as I love making it.
Emma Ivanovic

Remembering dedicated artist Emma Ivanovic

A sample of artwork by Emma (Emira) Ivanovic is being displayed in the foyer of  Wanstead Library. Art Group Wanstead member and local resident Emma sadly passed away in January, aged 67, while visiting her home city of Zagreb, Croatia. Emma studied fine art in New York and Paris, and showed her work in many galleries, including in Covent Garden, London.
Art Group Wanstead is grateful to her husband Nenad for lending us an array of her work.
