Artists open their doors
Published: Tuesday 5th September 17
Wandsworth Artists’ Open House is back next month, with nearly 150 artists across the borough inviting you into their homes and studios.
On the first two weekends of October you can meet artists in a relaxed and informal setting. Every venue is free to visit and there is no pressure to buy, but if you wish you will be able to buy artwork without paying gallery prices.
Pick up a local trial guide or create your own discovery trail of Open Houses to visit at wandsworthart.com. Base your trail on a particular postcode or by the kind of art your interested in there is a wide range of work on offer, including painting, textiles, sculpture, cards, bags and jewellery.
Wandsworth Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “Wandsworth Artists’ Open House is one of the real highlights in the council’s annual arts and cultural events programme. It provides a rare opportunity to visit the homes and creative spaces of local artists and makers, and is a valuable sales opportunity for our growing creative industry.”
See the full list of Open Houses at wandsworthart.com. Printed guides with a map of all participating venues will be available from your local library, and at various venues and organisations throughout the borough. You can also get one from the Enable Arts Team by calling (020) 8871 8711 or writing to Staff Yard, Battersea Park, London SW11 4NJ.
Wandsworth Artists’ Open House is coordinated by Enable Arts Team, part of Enable Leisure and Culture, on behalf of Wandsworth Council. The event is run in conjunction with steering committee of local artists.
