The Lambeth Open is coming up fast and it’s keeping me busy preparing some new paintings for the event as well as sorting out prints and cards. Again I plan to take a mix of Croydon and non Croydon paintings including a couple of new paintings inspired by this year’s rainy London Pride.
I’m rely looking forward to showing in a new venue and meeting lots of new artists. The work showing on the online gallery is wonderful in its variety always a good sign in my opinion. One of the great things about taking part in events like this is to meet all the other artists and find out how they approach their work.
I’m a bit sad though to be missing the chance of visiting all the studios which will also be open during the weekend. Peeking into someone else’s work space is always good for chatting about techniques and materials.
I will be showing at the Portico Gallery in West Norwood, 4-5th October 10am-6pm alongside a whole host of other exciting artists http://www.lambethopen.com/portico-lower-gallery/
There are also a host of artists and crafts people with open studios that weekend, take a look at http://www.lambethopen.com/ for the map and full details of all participating artists.
