This year’s bi-annual exhibition of the Bermondsey Artists’ Group is COMMON & GARDEN consisting of works selected by Anna Barriball and Anne Bean, exploring correspondences within the urban environment, between public space and more private green spaces whilst resonating with CGP London’s unique park location.

Key is the exhibition’s sub-theme of Beautification, drawing inspiration from the original Southwark ‘Beautification’ projects launched by Ada Salter in 1920.
