OPEN 06 is a great opportunity to view and buy a wide range of high quality and innovative contemporary art by 10 established artists. This annual 3 day Open Studios event is fast becoming an integral part of East London's cultural calendar.
3-11 Westland Place is home to painters, printmakers, illustrators, sculptors, designers, installation artists and writers. The building represents the creative diversity associated with Hoxton, and demonstrates the breadth of talent and artistic accomplishment within London.
The artists at Westland Place Studios have been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally. Jan Goodkin, Edith Gubbay, Teresa Narduzzo and Richard Sharples have all had major solo shows in the last year.
OPEN 06 gives an insight into the more intimate world of the artist’s studio. Nine spaces will be open, allowing the public to view and buy a wide variety of artwork, talk to the artists directly, and experience the artists’ work environment.
The artists’ studios are spread over three floors of a turn of the century industrial building five minutes walk from Old Street underground station, round the corner from the iconic Shepherdess Café, and sandwiched between Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen and the fashionable fireplace shop Renaissance,
Tube – Old Street on the Northern line. Local buses – 243, 55, 43, 214, 205, 76, 21, 141.
