Whether you have visited before, or are new to the 
event, we have no doubt that you will be inspired, 
delighted and very tempted to buy from the 
wonderful range of artists who take part in our open 
house weekends. 
Over 200 artists, working in a variety of art forms 
from ceramics to painting to jewellery, are throwing 
open their doors across the borough. It’s the perfect 
opportunity to see what happens on your street, and 
to explore the borough. 
Big Draw also takes place in October and we have 
included exhibitions and activities that are happening 
in Wandsworth as part of this nationwide celebration. 
We urge you to visit them and get involved.

Collectors preserve and help to reveal the great mysteries of previous civilisations; without collectors, the world's cultural artefacts would be consigned to the rubbish heap.

This summer, Contemporary Art Projects invites you to Start Your Collection!

Taking place over the quiet period of late summer, this annual gathering of highly collectible artworks by over 70 emerging contemporary artists takes the form of a mini-Fair and includes drawings, watercolours, small paintings and sculptures, limited edition prints and photographs. Intended to aid collectors to start or extend their collection of contemporary art, all artworks have a ceiling price of £200 exclusive of any additional framing costs.

All participating artists have been educated at top international art colleges and form part of the contemporary art matrix. This exhibition is an exciting opportunity to survey current thought and upcoming trends and see early stage development of a number of interesting artists and their ideas.

Many artists have made work especially for this event in order to make it possible for new collectors to make acquisitions of their work.

Gallery opening hours will be extended to 12 - 8 pm daily, including weekends, throughout the exhibition. Due to the high volume of participating artists, works will be displayed on a rotating basis, and may be collected from the gallery at the time of purchase, which is especially helpful for visitors. We will have an entire list of available works along with artist bios, in the gallery and on the comment website www.commentart.com. Please contact us for images of works or other information.

The Life of kings

Article ImageMadeleine Hunter will be exhibiting installation photographs in Scenery: Chewer's  'the life of kings'.

On Aug 27, 2009 at Vibe Bar, Old Truman Brewery, leave behind the toil and trouble of the city streets and escape up to where the air is infused with the majestic artistic talents of London’s little known but promising musicians and photographers.

Inspired by a quote from renowned journalist H.L Mencken and famously used in the final ever episode of The Wire, this musical performance and photography exhibition is all in the name of the fantastic charity Youth Music (www.youthmusic.org.uk), set up in 1999 to promote and support music-making opportunities for underprivileged children with the least access across the UK.

The night will be an original mixture of photographic art alongside performances from live bands and DJs, which will all be exhibited in the cosy confines upstairs at Vibe Bar, Brick Lane.
