Buy direct from artists in their own homes or studios at Putney Artists Open House
7-8 and 14-15 October: 11am-6pm
The 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.
Putney Artists group offers a diverse collection of paintings, sketches, ceramics, jewellery and sculpture and this year 50 of them will be showing and selling their work in 30 different locations around Putney.
Previous artists have included Alan Smart (1), 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. Sophie Cole (2) works in mixed media express the essence of the exposed female form while her sea and landscapes take on a more fluid and reflective vision. Artist, Joanna Bielska (3) has a background in textile design and a Masters in art education and uses non-traditional application methods and mixed media to her work. She has taught art in both London and New York and runs classes from her home. Alison Edwards’s work (4) ranges from delicate porcelain pieces to garden sculptures, using a variety of clay. She has exhibited across England and as well as being in private collections had a commissioned work in a Chelsea Flower Show garden.
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.
