Buy direct from artists in their own homes or studios.
Putney Artists Open House is once again being held this October, giving art lovers the chance to visit artists in their homes, studios, workshops or sheds. Putney is part of the bigger Wandsworth Artists Open House, being run across the borough.
The Putney Artists group offer a diverse collection of paintings, sketches, ceramics, jewellery and sculpture and this year around 50 of them will be showing and selling their work in 30 different locations around Putney.
Artists in the group include Alan Smart, who left advertising to study painting in St Ives in the 1960s. He has had shows at Chelsea Art Society, Mall Galleries and Affordable Art Fair.
Alison Edwards’s work ranges from delicate porcelain pieces to garden sculptures. Ann Hawskley taught art in Leeds and how worked as a storyboard artist. She often paints portraits with a degree of ambiguity. Bill McCombe trained at Wimbledon and City and Guilds of London art schools. His recent work focuses on land and town scapes.
15,000 Trail Maps will be available from early September – they can be picked up from one of the purple bikes dotted around Putney or from various locations, including Putney School of Art and Putney Library. Open 11am – 6pm.
