Arts and Culture in your Community - London Studio Tour 2016

The London Studio Tour has been active in London for 23 years and has been a huge contributor to the arts and culture in our city. The Tour was first created in 1993 to feature the artists’ and the talent that live within our City and our communities. 

One weekend every year the artists of London graciously open their homes and studios to the general public to share their world and reveal the mythical process in which their art is produced. This is a one-of-a kind experience that breaks the barrier between a finished piece of art that you may find hanging in a gallery and the actually procedure in which the art was created. 

This year the event will be held April 15th -17th where London residents are all welcome to take part in this free 3-day event.

In Lovely Lambeth we have so much culture and art to celebrate in our community.  This year, the London Studio Tour will be showcasing Lambeth artist, Vivian Tserotas.  Vivian is an award winning textile artist, teacher,  and owner of the Art Gallery of Lambeth.  She has been participating in the London Studio Tour for the past eight years in Lambeth and is dedicated to promoting the arts and culture in our community. Tserotas’ art works look like paintings but with a closer look you see the swirls of flowing stitches that decorate layers of translucent material.  Silk and velvet is her canvas, her sewing machine her paintbrush while her thread will add the final touches to her vibrant jewel-toned one-of-a-kind works of art.  Vivian will be exhibiting her most recent textile arts, fused glass, felted works and jewelry.  The studio will have some interactive station set up for participants to view, learn and try creating with the different mediums. Vivian will be showing at the Art Gallery of Lambeth to share her art process and greet everyone who participates in this exhilarating event.

The event is free of charge and a great experience for all members of the family to learn and explore the real world of art straight from the production room!  This is an event you do not want to miss so take the week end off and visit all the artists on the tour. 

Many of the other studios on the tour will also be offer beverages, snacks and some are also offering a chance for you to try your hand at art production.  This year, the Studio Tour is presenting the largest number of artists and studios in a 23-year history!  A total of 33 studios will be open for this eagerly-anticipated event on London’s cultural calendar.
