Out Of Uniform

Fill The Gap Gallery show

Back in September 2010 the capitals commuters saw the first art exhibition ever held by a group of talented London Underground staff. The public response was overwhelmingly positive. Where can we see more artwork, when is the next show and how do we contact the artists? There was no alternative but to meet the public demand to access their work and meet the artist. So here is Out of Uniform. This art collective has been active now for 5 years and over time, it's members have put on a string of successful shows.

Independently conceived by David Nevin, a Station Supervisor and Artist. Adventures don’t begin until you get into the forest. It all came about because David noticed the increasing diversity of backgrounds of the people he found himself working with on London Underground. ‘I have worked side by side magicians, musicians and PHD environmentalists not to mention a clairvoyant’. The most common previous life that caught my ear, eye and heart were the artists. They have a common story of people needing to make a living to support a family and their creative passion. They might work for a living but they create for the glory of God – they might even sell a picture or two along the way!. The happiest people do not pursue happiness.
These dedicated, friendly London Underground staff are showing a different aspect of their daily working lives. Modern people living uncomplicated lives who have exceptional and surprising hidden talents.

In fact, this art space you are now standing in is run by a trio of tube staff, who are also menbers of Out of Uniform. They offer the gallery, their time and assistance free of charge to the local art community- giving them an opportunity to get their work seen.
