who we are . . .
THE THAMES GROUP OF ARTISTS is a collective of painters, sculptors, ceramicists, 3D mixed media artists, photographers, writers, performers and film makers connected by the River Thames. The group's first major show was SWEET THAMES RUN SOFTLY, a pop up, touring exhibition inspired by one of the greatest poems of the 20th century, TS Eliot’s The Waste Land.
For its second project, the Thames Group has turned to another pivotal wordsmith of the 20th century, the iconic post-punk musician, lyricist and artist, Ian Dury. Entitled ALL KINDS OF NAUGHTY (after an unrecorded Dury song) the show has been inspired by the lyrics and songs of the great Lord Upminster himself and will be travelling to galleries in London, Essex and Kent throughout 2021.
