Blackhorse Lane Open Studios and Silent Auction
Two days when artists open their private studios to the public.
Featuring: painting, sculpture, drawing, textiles, design, illustration, installation, ceramics, animation, photography and book arts.
Part of the E17 Art Trail.
This is your chance to meet artists in their work environments, get insights into how and what they create, and even take home a work of art. Engage in one of the most exciting aspects of contemporary art by discussing art with the artists themselves. Stop by and enjoy, be inspired and perhaps challenged at this friendly, relaxed event.
It is also a good opportunity to purchase original works at pre-gallery prices! Visitors will have the chance to bid on an artwork by a Blackhorse Lane artist in the Silent Auction. You can see the artworks in the auction in advance by going to the website: http://www.artworksproject.com. The Preview Evening on Friday Sep 9th from 6-9 pm will include bidding for the Silent Auction, a donation bar and entertainment.
For children we will be running an Art Quiz with prizes donated by Jackson’s Art Supplies. In the same building The Artworks Project Space will have its annual Open Exhibition. On Saturday the 10th there will be poetry readings all afternoon by the Forest Poets. Michelle Reader and Mike Thorn will have sculpture on display in the yard.
