PICK ME UP 2016
3rd Rail exhibited as one of the featured studios at Pick Me Up, the annual graphic arts festival held at London’s historic Somerset House. For the show we took the opportunity to develop a new collection of art prints and screen printed garments in partnership with some of today’s leading contemporary illustration, typography and street art talent including exciting new releases from Hattie Stewart, Archie Proudfoot, Mr. Penfold and Lynnie Zulu. The 3rd Rail exhibition space also provided visitors with the opportunity to experiment with the medium of screen printing by delivering daily tote bag and paper printing workshops.

LITTLE WHITE LIES AND 3RD RAIL PRESENT: THE GREAT GUILLERMO
Almost a year after our first exhibition we announced ‘The Great Guillermo – From Cronos to Crimson Peaks’ in partnership with independent film magazine Little White Lies. The exhibition comprised of a series of screen prints created by exciting illustrators all inspired by the films of Guillermo del Toro and re imagined as Victorian era book covers.

ARTIST BEER VISIONS
Our first exhibition titled Artist Beer Visions (ABV) was created in association with People’s Park Tavern. Synchronous with the booming craft beer movement, ABV is collaborative exhibition that unites the 3 creative skills of brewing, illustration and screen-printing. We worked with twenty fantastic artists, each one distinguished in the worlds of contemporary illustration, design and typography, and asked them to design a fictional beer label for us to screen-print.
The artists served up some incredible pieces, reflecting the powerful names, hypnotising slogans and inspiring mythology of those strange and spectacular brews that have intrigued and confused so many diligent drinkers. During our week long occupation of 71A Gallery we displayed all designs as large format screen-prints, with limited edition copies available to buy and an assortment of exciting peripheries for our visitors to indulge in. On top of that, our friends at People’s Park Tavern packed a punch with a special exhibition beer, free on launch night, and their head brewer shared some secrets of the trade at the ‘Talk & Taste’ closing event. The event was a spectacular showcase of beer, art and print.

THE PEOPLE’S PARK TAVERN
The People’s Park Tavern is a traditional pub with a modern edge of quality, from the food to the ales that are brewed onsite in their Laine’s Brewery. It’s already a favourite with Time Out, The Evening Standard and Refinery29.
“As a pub with a love of beer and a love of design we were extremely keen to be involved in ABV, especially when we saw the calibre of artists involved” – Rob Quirk, Manager at People’s Park Tavern
