‘Having discovered a stack of records in the Community Centre,  Disk Jockeys Hannah and Daniel 
play tunes from the 50's to the 80's.  Lucky dip a record to dedicate to your nearest and dearest on 
the preview night’.  Presented by Hannah Simons and Daniel Lehan.

The Nunhead open exhibition now in its sixth year is an open exhibition in the truest sense. The range 
of work submitted is a vibrant collection of art from artist’s who are residents of Nunhead and 
Peckham and the surrounding area.  Over eighty artists both amateur and professional and of all 
ages have submitted work in various mediums but what brings this show together is a commitment 
and passion for images and ideas that is evident in all the work regardless of art training and age.

18 September- 4th October 
Five artists have been invited to make work for five Nunhead shop windows.
Jenna Collins’ poster series provides an absurd take on the eclectic and exotic locations – such as 
the Caribbean, the Grand Canyon and a Buddhist temple – depicted in the laminated images on the 
walls of the Baja Spice takeaway restaurant. ‘Mummy Superior’ Sarah Doyle’s window in the textile 
shop Mummy J Fashions works with the patterns on West African Hollandais cloth and is inspired by 
local folklore – the story of a nun beheaded on Nunhead Green. Miyuki Kasahara’s 'A home for 100 
Tufts' in the florist AG Flowers’s window is an installation of 100 tufts that resemble giant dandelion 
seeds but which are all made from artificial materials. Daniel Lehan presents ‘Butchers Boy’ in the 
window of the butchers P and J Baker. A photograph of the artist with the various cuts and joints of 
meat - Brisket, Thin Flank and Sirloin transferred to his own body, ‘Butchers Boy’ is a reminder of our 
corporeal and mortal existence. In the Na Pura Portuguese café, inspired by a global trade 
established between Portugal and China & Japan 500 years ago, Charlotte Squire has reconstructed 
traditional motifs from Jingdezhen ceramics and Japanese laquerware from recycled aluminium drink
