Riverside pictures & mystery photos in the Garlands’ first joint show.

Tomorrow sees the opening of a new joint exhibition by painter Wanda Garland and designer / photographer Ken Garland, who met in London, 60 years ago, at what was then Central School of Arts & Crafts.

It’s the first time they have ever exhibited their work together. Wanda’s show is called ‘Thameside reflexions’, and depicts London’s river between Vauxhall and the Thames Barrier. Ken’s is entitled ‘Looking closer’, a collection of ambiguous photographic displayed without captions.
