Open House At Wimbledon Art Studios

Chance to buy from local artists

Wimbledon Art Studios will being hosting one of its twice-yearly Open Art Shows from May 15-18.

The complex of studios just off Plough Lane in Riverside Yard, Riverside Road, is home to more than 200 artists covering fields including printmaking, furniture, painting, photography and ceramics.

It's the largest single site art studio complex in Europe. The two buildings form a massive maze of studios, but friendly staff will be on hand during the event to point you in the right direction and it's very well sign-posted. No tickets are necessary.

Visitors will find some pieces displayed in the main entrance, but the majority of the artwork is shown in each artist's own workspace. There will be the chance to interact with 150 artists.

Last November's Open Studios art show attracted more than 4,400 people, offering the public chance to buy directly from the artists.

If you would like to attend, visit their website to get an email invitation, or call Isabel Garcia Imhof on 0208 947 1183.
