It's now eight months since Art House opened it's doors and began to welcome an influx of artists and makers. The purpose built studios with their bright and airy interiors immediately impressed as a strong contrast to much of the studio space available to artists in the Greater London area. The initial up take was slow as potential occupants weighed the possibilities but this soon quickened and now the studios are now 90% full.
ASC are to be commended for their enlightened policy of making studios available to new graduates by means of subsidised rents. And those new graduates have found that working alongside experienced and established artists has a very positive advantage, owing to the willingness to share advice and expertise. There is no hierarchy, witnessed by the easy and relaxed atmosphere in the communal breakout space and at the regular social get-togethers both within the studios and at local pubs and eateries.
We are in the process of planning our first Open Studios event in September, which marks our first anniversary. If you want to be kept informed about future events follow this link and supply your contact details..
