Wandsworth Council presents:
Wandsworth Artists’ Open House – Take a peek behind the front door…
Wandsworth Artists’ Open House is back this October with nearly 150 artists across the borough inviting you into their homes and spaces.
Pique your interest in what happens behind normally closed doors and meet artists in a relaxed and informal setting, with no pressure to buy (although there is the added bonus of buying artwork without paying gallery prices!). Every venue is free to visit and offers you an insight into the amazing creativity that can be found within the borough.
The event takes place across the first two weekends of October (7/8 and 14/15) and is a real highlight in Wandsworth Council’s annual arts and cultural events programme.
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.”
