Another Summer of Love

Oli Frape

Artcade is a brand new gallery concept, showing and selling the work of Sheffield's finest contemporary artists.

The popular Sheffield institution Forum Arcade will make space for Artcade to present a dedicated programme of new solo exhibitions from a wide range of artists. During these unprecedented times, Artcade will be a welcome support for artists to develop and showcase their creative practice.

Twelve Sheffield artists will work in the space over twelve months, experimenting and expanding their output and creating an original exhibition. All artwork will be for sale, from original paintings and drawings to prints and reproductions. There will be something for every aspiring collector or art fan.

Artcade’s first artist, Oli Frape, opens with his exhibition ‘Summer of Love’. Created against a backdrop of social distancing and a divisive political climate, this new collection of works celebrates unity, positivity and openness by using bold colours and optimistic language from summers past. Oli has spent the last decade crafting a career as a commercial lettering artist and working with a variety of prolific global brands.

Oli’s ‘Summer of Love’ exhibition opens on the evening of 28 August and will be on view till the end of September. Public access to Artcade will be every Saturday, 10am till 6pm.
