While the art world may take August off, Pete Gleadall (our resident non visual art based artist) has been hard at work. His track As You Like It with Smokin' Jo under the banner of TRNSSTR was released earlier in the summer and his new track with DJ Tom Stephan, Phreekn, is out on August 21st – it's number 19 in the Buzz Chart. You can read a review of As You Like It here, and you can check it out on Beatport. Keep checking the Beatport site for Phreekn when it is released.

The September issue of Vogue has managed to upturn my perception of a certain Great Western Studios artist. Hidden on the last page of the magazine was a piece of work by Paul Vanstone. I've always known Paul as a sculptor and stone carver, further evidenced by his near constant coating of a layer of stone dust - but here he is exposed as a painter.

The art world returns from its summer sojourn in late August/early September. Coinciding with this is an exhibition by Kate Gibb and James Brown at the Ada Street Gallery, E8. The exhibition opens on August 26th and runs until the 31st. Kate screenprints (pull) and James makes linocuts (press) - hence the title of their show Press and Pull.

The Tommy Penton quest for world domination takes another step forward in September with the exhibiton and sale of the hand printed, hand bound, slipcased version of his book. The exhibition takes place at the Menier Chocolate Factory space in SE1 and runs from September 1st to September 31st. Limited to a signed edition of 250 (10 of which are limited further by being leather bound and tooled) the exhibition is a chance to grab this high demand book. Alongside the book the exhibition will also feature other painted works by Tommy. The softback book already has its own website so it is only fitting that the handmade books do too.

Anthony Meier Gallery in San Francisco is holding a solo show of Katy Moran paintings from September 5th to October 3rd.

Julie Goldsmith has work in a show entitled Start Your Collection which is being held at Contemporary Art Projects on Rivington Street in the East End and runs until September 21st.

David Ben White has work in a forthcoming show at Primo Alonso, curated by Nick Kaplony, Sideshow opens on September 5th and runs until September 30th.

Lastly, heads up, on a solo exhibition for Jan Coutts at Quantum Art on Cork Street which runs from September 16th - 20th. There will be more information about this in the next blog.
