River 2021

River is a multifaceted project. Beginning in summer 2021, members of RAG have responded to the theme of ‘River’ – as a direct response to the Thames, or a metaphorical interpretation. Part of the Totally Tames Festival 2021, 25 artists contributed to an exhibition in Cavendish Conference Centre in America Square, Tower Bridge, clay workshops were run in the London Museum of Water and Steam and a walk along the Thames explored the work of James McNeill Whistler.

A significant number of members have a vision of extending their exploration of ‘River’ for many years. We see the work of 2021 as the beginning of a creative journey.
