Door's Open London 2013

The Art Gallery of Lambeth opened it's doors to all of London, and surrounding area, this past weekend.  It was a busy, busy weekend for us here at the gallery.  We had special events happening  and special guests dropping by
Bruce Peninsula - Philip S. Schmidt
all weekend long.

Philip S. Schmidt, photographer extraordinaire, was here on both Saturday and Sunday, giving slide shows and talking about travel and photography. As always, Phil was a crowd pleaser.... Phil is ALWAYS entertaining. 

Judy Ross, one of the AGL's member artists, was also on hand to demonstrate the delicate and intricate art of jewellery making. 

Toni Poole
On Saturday, we had a visit from one of our Resident Artists, Toni Poole.  Toni gave a short demonstration on her handling and technique of watercolour.  Toni also teaches step-by-step watercolour classes here at the gallery.  
Toni has just returned from a vacation trip to her home in Malta.  There is sure to be some spectacular work from Toni in the next few months... just in time for Christmas.

We also had a visit from Marianne Morris.  Marianne is another of our Resident Artists. Marianne taught her fabulously fun technique of acrylic painting to a group of students in a step-by-step class Saturday morning.  Everyone had a great time creating their own version of her abstract cat.

Marianne and a couple of volunteers created their own collaborative painting out in the parking lot in front of the gallery.  They even recruited the help of BOB FM's Matt Di Paola, who came by to check out the action here at the gallery.

And between all these going's on, we had mini step-by-step classes set up.  People from all over London, and area, were able to try it on for size and see just how much fun painting can be.  Just look at the happy faces of these painters!

So we'd like to extend a great big THANK YOU to all who joined us for  DOORS OPEN LONDON & CULTURE DAYS!! We had a blast!!  :)

  1. It was so fun to be part of Doors Open at Art Gallery of Lambeth. I enjoyed re-connecting with my art friends and doing my little demo. From the pictures it looks like every one who visited had a wonderful time. Hope your experience at AGL inspired you to keep on exploring your creative side. Toni
