Bow Arts runs one of the most vibrant and well attended Open Studios in London with an expected turnout of over 2,000! This community embraces visual artists, sculptors, designers and craftspeople. The event provides an excellent opportunity for members of the public, curators and collectors to see a huge range of diverse art forms and artists at every stage of their careers.
Over a Friday evening and a Saturday afternoon, our artists will open their studios and invite you in. We have a number of studios in the landmark industrial buildings in Bow Road as well as the nearby state-of-the-art converted biscuit factory at P1 studios (P1 open Friday only).
This means that you can wander from studio to studio, all within a couple of hundred metres of each other Once you’ve found your way into one of our artist’s creative spaces you can have a bit of a nose round, discuss, make contacts, view and, should you so wish, even buy a piece of original art work. After that you can go and see another studio... and another... and another. As many as you like really – bearing in mind that we have about 150 artists at Bow Road and P1 and we’re only open for two days!
Throughout your visit you are invited to have a wander into the court yard where you will find performance art, food, drink, DJs and market stalls plus educational workshops from our Education Team. More than anything through this event we’re creating an opportunity for artists and non-artists to come together in an act of community. The only requirement is your curiosity...
