Introducing E17 Art House

A little bit of magic has happened in E17. At the end of Stainforth Road, opposite the Church Hill Post Office Depot, where once there was a brick wall and weeds, appeared a little path and then a door at the end of it.

The door is now pink and the weeds have been replaced by a pretty garden. This is E17 Art House, a new art space and picture framers for Walthamstow. The dark storage rooms have been transformed into a bright and friendly gallery and workshop, where frames are handmade by the owners, artist Kirsten Schmidt and graphic design graduate Elaine McCloskey.

They framed together in Notting Hill for many years, but lived in Waltham Forest so they decided to set up on their own closer to home.

For the E17 Art Trail they are presenting ‘WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS’ an exhibition of fresh art and design talent. It’s a great line-up of East London artists including Pure Evil (very nice chap, exhibits with Banksy), Iain Hector (incredible screenprints!), Francis Long (Ketchup King) and other fabulously talented girls and boys.
