Artists At Home reopen their doors
The popular West London cultural event Artists at Home returns to its usual third weekend in June this year, with artists and makers opening up their homes and studios from 17-19 June and online.
The open studios event is believed to be the first of its type in London and was started by Mary Fedden, OBE RA RWA and Julian Trevelyan RA almost 50 years ago. This year will be the biggest yet with 83 artists participating across 66 open studios and nine artists showing online only.
A record-breaking 17 new artists will be joining the event this year including Clare Burnett, President of the Royal Society of Sculptors, who will be showing her sculptures and paintings in W12, Karin Raab, who creates decorative and functional ceramics in W6 and AJ Coady who will exhibit his paintings in W4.

“After two years of disruption, we are all thrilled to return to our regular dates in June, with such a strong showing of artists,” says Kathryn Davey, Chair of the Artists at Home Steering Group.
“We have new branding and great enthusiasm as we approach our half century anniversary next year. We know this weekend is incredibly popular with visitors, who come mostly from the local area of course but also from further afield, to enjoy the unique experience of seeing and buying work directly from artists and visiting their studios.”
