ARThouse Open Studios Festival features the work of local artists and craftspeople, as well as some of the younger budding artists from the borough’s schools. The principal aim of ARThouse is to promote the wealth of creative talent within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and to provide visitors with a unique experience of viewing an artist’s work in the very space that the work was created. ARThouse 2009 will take place over two weekends from Friday 26 June - Sunday 5 July 2009.
With over 110 local artists, three community groups, and 10 of the borough’s schools all exhibiting, this year’s Open Studios Festival is set to be spectacular. All participants will be showcasing their work to the public in a range of unique venues. With free admission to all, you are offered the chance to meet some of the area’s finest creative craftspeople, and buy your own original pieces. We hope you find the time to experience a variety of the artists participating in this year’s ARThouse and learn about the creative communities within the borough.
