ArtWest Open Studios Weekend
19 August 2013
ArtWest is a collective of artists based in West London working out of Acava, Acme, Light Factory, Northwest and NW10 studios. On 28th - 29th September, the artists and designers will open their usually private doors and invite members of the public inside for a special Open Studios event! This behind the scenes tour offers you the chance to discover over fifty artists working in a creative hub across painting, print-making, photography, sculpture, ceramics, fashion, glass and furniture. Visitors will also have the opportunity to collect unique work direct from the artist's themselves, with prices ranging from £20 to £2000. The studios will also be showcasing a series of mystery postcards produced by ArtWest artists, celebrities and local politicians sold anonymously for just £20. The weekend aims to strengthen links between West London artists and the local community and is great opportunity to view busy working studios in action.
“It really is a thriving, exciting, place to be making art … Building links between the artists and local people and locally-based organisations can only be to the benefit of everyone involved” Caro Millington, Open Weekend organiser and Shepherd’s Bush artist
