Gillian Best Powell 1955-2016

Last week we were shocked and saddened to learn that Gillian Best Powell, a trustee of Deptford X since 2014, had passed away.

Gillian was an artist who trained in the US and her native Uruguay before moving to London where she was a co-founder of Cor Blimey Arts and Core Gallery. Gillian had a studio at APT and since 2012 had worked with Nolia Devlin to organise and curate exhibitions. She made a huge contribution to the local art scene over many years, was an active member of South London Women Artists, and brought her charm and positive outlook to everyone she encountered - she was much loved and respected. We will miss her very much.
