THE THAMES GROUP OF ARTISTS
The Thames group of Artists Is a collective of painters, sculptors, ceramicists, 3D mixed media artists, photographers, writers, performers and film makers all connected by the River Thames.
SWEET THAMES RUN SOFTLY
The Thames Group's first major show was a pop up art exhibition entitled Sweet Thames Run Softly. Inspired by one of the greatest poems of the 20th century, TS Eliot’s The Waste Land, this pop up exhibition appeared at festivals, and galleries from London to Southend during the summer of 2015.

ALL KINDS OF NAUGHTY
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. Named after an unrecorded Dury song, All Kinds of Naughty 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.
