Blackhorse Lane Open Studios and Art in the Corridor

Several of the Blackhorse Lane Studios artists have already contributed to the blog with details of their own work in the Trail but here is a description of the three day Open Studios event and the Art in the Corridor exhibition and sale. There also a jazz band on the opening night.....

As part of the E17 Art Trail the artists at Blackhorse Lane Studios will open their private studios to the public for three days: September 3-5 2010

The event will feature painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, sculpture, installation, ceramics, animation, video, photography and book arts.

This is your chance to meet 30 international 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.

Visitors will have the chance to buy artwork by a Blackhorse Lane artist at low prices in the ‘Art in the Corridor’ sale, with 15% going to the Barbican Arts Group Trust, that manages the studios, for the ArtWorks Public Programme. Details are available on the Blackhorse Lane Studios website.

For kids there will be an Art Quiz with prizes donated by Jackson's Art Supplies. In the same building The Artworks Project Space will have an exhibition showing the results of workshops with the community run by the artist in residence Natuka Honrubia. There will be a hop on, hop off bus service on Sunday run by the E17 Art Trail as there is a lot more art to see while you are in the area.
