Last weekend – 3rd & 4th October – was the annual Lambeth Open. It’s a great opportunity to go and visit artists in their studios, see their work and have a chat with lots of interesting people.
This year there were several dozen venues all over the borough – stretching from the Southbank to Norwood – and at least a hundred artists showing their work. We managed to get to about half a dozen shows, some in Loughborough Junction some in Herne Hill and some in people’s houses in neighbouring streets.
Warrior Studios took part – although I failed to organise any work to hang… – and we had a great turn out. A new edition of the Warrior Press was put together for the event – we all supplied a small piece of work along the theme of An Artist is Never on Holiday. You can order one for £20 via the Warrior website or by emailing me – a dozen original works for the price of a round of drinks seems good to me!
There was also a BBQ in the evening…Federica made some sweet lights with brown paper bags, some sand and tea lights..
