Putney artists open their doors to the public for the second year. Putney artists are opening their homes and studios to the public at the end of May giving art lovers a chance to visit and chat to local artists where they work.

Putney Open Studios is organised by the Wandsworth Arts Office in partnership with Putney School of Art and Design. The event will run from Saturday, May 31 to Sunday, June 8.

Over 50 artists will be exhibiting in their homes and studios around SW15, with a huge range to view including potters and hat makers, stained glass artists, furniture makers as well as sculptors, painters and printmakers. Visitors will also have the opportunity to buy original works of art below the normal gallery prices.


Entrance to all studios is free.

There will be a showcase exhibition of the artists opening their studios at Putney School of Art and Design in Disraeli Road from Tuesday May 20. This will give visitors to the Putney Open Studios a chance to choose their favourite artists before deciding which studios to visit. .
