Previous Exhibitions - Wimbledon Art StudiosSummer Open Studios Art Show, May 2011
The Summer Open Studios Art Show in May was a huge success for all involved and attracted just over 4000 visitors during the 4 day event. A new approach to our marketing of the show resulted in a high percentage of first time visitors of which a fair number had travelled some considerable distances, including some overseas journeys. It was great meeting new faces and hope they will soon become regular old friends.
We always have a prominent figure from the art world to officially open the show and PelĂ© Cox, Poet in Residence at the Royal Academy of Arts not only opened the show but also generously performed one of her pieces titled, âKiss, Kiss, Kissâ. In the past we have had William Packer, artist and former art critic to the Financial Times, Razia Iqbal, Arts Correspondent for the BBC and Maurice Cockrill, Keeper of The Royal Academy Schools. We will keep you updated as to who it will be for our November 2011 show
Sunday was family day and was by far the busiest. An art treasure hunt and interactive story telling for the kids kept both children and adults entertained through out, while refreshing tea and delicious cakes from the Studios CafĂ© kept everyone happily fed and watered.
Considering the current economic climate and funding cuts in the Arts sector it was wonderful to see that such an enthusiastic response translated into sales. There was many an interestingly wrapped shape cradled under an arm, accompanied by a smiling face as people departed after a couple of happily lost hours exploring.
If you would like more information or would like an invitation to our next show 24th - 27th November 2011 then please 'Contact Us' or call Emma Campbell on +44(0)20 8947 1183.
