A new, dynamic project got under way on Friday, with the launch of the Society of Gold Minds at the Laura I. Gallery in Barking. The Socieety is the brainchild of Laura Iosifesu, Founder and Director of the gallery, and her drive and vision. The purpose is to bring together people with a creative outlook from any angle, artists, experts and leaders in other fields and entrepreneurs, in an atmosphere of mutual respect, mmutual support and co-operation. By combining our strengths, expertise and ideas, we can realise individual ambitions and achieve unexpected successes as a group.

The launch was a very interesting evening. The work of artist members was on show and the artists and other experts and interested people gave talks about their work and its origins, then exchanged ideas and thoughts with each other. There will be monthly meetings where we hope to form solid avhievements from these beginnings. To find out more about membership of the Society visit

The exhibition continues until Nov 9 at Ice House Court, Abbey Rd., IG11 7BT
