Great Western Studios News - December

Six weeks after the big move we opened up the doors to visitors for our very first Open Studios. 

The new studios looked brilliant and attracted many visitors who viewed and purchased from the artists. The Great Western Choir performed their excellent Christmas repertoire, getting everyone present into Christmas mood. Photos of the Open Studios will be posted on the January blog.

One of Amy Sharrocks' live art pieces, Keepy Up, took place an evening last week. Up to 30 people at the same time were keeping thistles up in the air by movement and breathing. This art work has also recently been featured in the book,Artsadmin 30, created to mark Artsadmin's 30th birthday in 2009.



Mole Browne
, Great Western's verre églomisé artist, is currently exhibiting her one-off mirrors at the Belsize HealthArt Gallery. The show will go on until February 2010.



If you're going over to Europe in the beginning of the New Year you'll be able to see Cristina Rodriguez's work at the Stuttgart Art Fair. If you're staying in London you can see her paintings at the London Art Fair in January 12th- 17th, 2010.



Perfectly timed for Christmas, Jay Burridge has launched a new patch for Lucky Seven's caps. If you haven't finished your Christmas shopping and know someone who is in to the classical 80's film The Karate Kid, visit www.luckyseven.tv to find out more about the cap with a Cobra Kai patch and others.



Tamar Zaig's Costume Boutique has styled Jamie Oliver and his family and friends for Jamie's Family Christmas, which started on Channel 4 Tuesday 15th. If you've missed it, all episodes are repeated on Thursday 24th December, shown back-to-back from 4.10pm.



Katy Moran received positive reviews in the Evening Standard for her pieces in the exhibition Visible Invisible: Against the Security of the Real at Parasol Unit, running until 7th February 2010.
