Great Western Studios is in a new location

 

November News 
Great Western Studios has moved to a new purpose built studio complex, only 50 metres from our old building. 
We have always been under threat to vacate due to the creation of Crossrail and the new building will secure the future for our artists. After weeks of packing, the move took place the first week of November during four hectic days. However, everyone successfully managed the transit via the scaffolding ramp built between the old and the new building. The whole move was documented by Great Western Studios own Angelo Plantamura.











However, the move isn't all that's been going on this month.

Olivia Musgrave had the opening of her exhibition on November 5th and there was also an article about her and her exhibition The Seven Deadly Sins in the November 11 issue of Country Life Magazine.





Darren Almond is exhibiting a piece called TIDE - 600 digital wall clocks registering the relentless progress of time, at theRoyal Academy of Arts as part of GSK Contemporary exhibition Earth:art of a changing world. The show opens on Wednesday 2nd December.



Tarka Kings is showing her work in a two-person exhibitionWy.Work together with Kate Atkin at 52 Hoxton Square between November 24th and December 8th. The two artists met on a recidency in Wyoming and were both influenced by the landscape and inspired by specific shapes.



Kat Campbell Pedersen's exhibition at 7 Marshall Street together with photographer Anne Clements has been extended until the end of November. The two ladies were invited to exhibit by Westminster Council and Sing London after they painted pianos for the summers Street Pianos project.


Yukako Shibata is in the group exhibition In Two Mindscurated by Rowena Chiu at Eleven Spitalfields. The show runs from 13th to 29th November and open Thursdays - Sundays 12-6pm and by appointment.



James Bigham will exhibit three of his pieces from The London Bus Project at the Barbican Art Gallery Shop over Christmas.



Cristina Rodriguez has been invited to participate in the seventh edition of the "Biennale Internazionale dell'Arte Contemporanea" in Florence, Italy from the 5th to the 13th of December.



Vivianne Westwood is presenting a one night only performance of Active Resistance to Propaganda at theBloomsbury Ballroom on December 4th. Prior to the performance there will be a special exhibition inspired by the manifesto which is curated by Sanja Sakic.



The first Open Studios in our new building will take place on the 12th and 13th of December, 12-6pm both days. Join us in our new home at 65 Alfred Road, London, W2 5EU. You will be able to meet and buy from the makers themselves, painters, sculptors, designers, illustrators, jewellers and many more.
