Artists at Home
Friday 15 – Sunday 17 June 2018
Every year in June the ‘Artists At Home’ open their doors to show off their work over one weekend, starting on Friday evening and continuing until Sunday afternoon.
Each year Artists At Home publish a little booklet and show on their website a map of all the participating artists’ studios – as many as 60 locations.
If you’re at all interested in art and you live in West London, one of the nicest things to do in the summer is to spend a happy weekend wandering around visiting artists in their homes and looking at their work.
Within three square miles, between Brook Green and Strand On The Green, Uxbridge Road and the Thames, there is a surprising diversity of artists – painters, sculptors, ceramicists, photographers, print-makers, textile and fashion designers and glassworkers. Many of them come together under the umbrella of Artists At Home to open their doors to the public in this annual open studio scheme. Some show alone, some with one or two others.
The booklet, which you can pick up from many of the shops in Chiswick, and the Artists At Home website will help you narrow the field of interest and personalise your very own art trail. What makes this special is that you get to meet the artists in their natural habitat as it were and talk to them about what they do, learning about their process, how and when they first began and what inspires them. You are welcome to buy, but there is no pressure – just go and visit.
Admission is free.
