The first week-end in July is traditionally Open Studios time in Brockley. I have been taking part every year since 1997 – that’s 19 years WOW! I love taking part because it prompts me to tidy up my studio and clear the hall so I can welcome visitors to my mini pop up gallery. This is a good opportunity to see a large selection of my artworks all in one place, and if you are looking for a bargain, much of the work will be at reduced prices to help me clear some space. This year I’m having a £30 “Clearance Corner” including some quite large framed pieces. The frames alone are worth more than that! First come first served.
Over the years, I’ve seen that many families like to visit the OpenStudios, and as an ex-teacher, I know kids can get bored while their parents look around so I always provide a “Creative Area” for kids (of all ages) to have a go at creating something.
My studio is at 45 Sprules Road Brockley SE4 2NL. The dates & times this year are; Sat & Sun July 2nd & 3rd 2-8pm and Monday July 4th 5-8pm. For more details go to the website: www.brockleyopenstudios.co.uk
GROUP EXHIBITION at St Peter’s: For the second year running, St Peter’s church on Wickham Road is kindly hosting a group exhibition where you can see samples of work from most of the exhibiting artists. This is a great place to start your tour, as you can then decide which studios you want to visit. The Private View is on Weds 29th June from 6-9pm
