Lambeth Open 2015

Press release September 19, 2015 Event

Artists and makers open their doors to the public this October

LOpen rgb 2000

On the first weekend of October artists and makers across the borough of Lambeth will be opening their studio, work spaces and homes to the public. Doors will be open 3rd and 4th October from 10am to 6pm both days (check web site for dates and times of private views).

Started in 2009, the event promises a wide range of arts and crafts on show including painting, sculpture, photography, textile design, jewellery, ceramics and print making. Entrance is free to all venues and the latest updated map can be found on our web site at

This event showcases the fantastic wealth of creative talent tucked away in the borough and helps communities discover the various art workshops and studios that are too often hidden away in their neighbourhoods. It is also a unique way to meet artists face to face and learn more about the various technical processes involved in their craft. It is also a great opportunity to buy direct and support your local artists and makers.

Venues vary from artists home studios to our larger ‘Hub Venues’ at The Brix in Brixton and Portico Gallery in West Norwood. New this year will be our Showcase Central at Pop Brixton opening on Monday 28th September until Sunday 4th October. This will display a selection of Lambeth Open exhibitor’s work from across the borough as well as providing an information point for visitors to pick up this year’s Art Trails.

Organiser and artist Tim Sutton (who also organises the very successful Urban Art art fair in Brixton) explained that “this is an affordable way for artists in the borough to show their work and a very accessible way for visitors to see art and craft work, and meet the people who created them. Lambeth has a rich resource of creative people and we really should be showing this off to the rest of London. The fact that the event has been going so long shows there is a real need of this kind of event in the borough.”
