Brockley Open Studios returns this Saturday for its 20th anniversary. The organisers say:
Fifty artists are taking part in this year’s Brockley Open Studios. Recent graduates and established artists are opening their homes to art lovers, showing a huge range of media from painting, sculpture and prints, to wooden animals, ceramics and graffiti art.
The weekend gives the public a chance to browse a stimulating variety of art in a friendly atmosphere, in interesting workspaces and houses. With studios within walking distance of each other, you can leave the car at home and join hundreds of local people out on the streets of Brockley’s leafy conservation area to meet and buy directly from the artists that live and work in their midst.
Since its inception the Open Studios weekend has grown and grown, becoming one of the highlights of South-East London’s cultural year. Its success is partly due to the high density of artists living in the area, many of whom are graduates from Goldsmiths and Camberwell. The beautiful Victorian houses provide a stunning backdrop to the art, and the opening of the London Overground has brought more new visitors to this treasured local event.
