This is London
By Andrew Stanford
A view from a bridge can elicit all kinds of emotions depending on the landscape; while a countryside bridge might make you feel at peace, a city bridge might make you feel energised by the bustling urban activity.
With high level walkways and an outstanding skyline, the view from Tower Bridge will give you a feeling of awe (or vertigo). Inspired by these views, members from the Southwark Arts Forum have been putting their creative talents to canvas, showing off the 'Landscapes and Elements' that make London such an impressive city.
These art works come in many forms: painting, photography, print, mixed media, and are on display at Tower Bridge as part of its fourth Art at the Bridge exhibition. The showcase can be found in the Victorian engine room until the 30th November, and features the work of Andrew Stanford, Jaykoe, Simon Thomas, Stephen Ritter, and Tony Berkman.
Admission to the Tower Bridge Exhibition is £8 for adults, £5.60 concessions, and £3.40 for children. It is the opportunity to compare and contrast different artists' interpretations of the city alongside a view of the real thing.
If you have a favourite, make sure to use your token to vote. The winning artist will then get the honoured reward of raising the bridge.
