Artists’ Opportunities

As a community of artists we aim to alert our members to opportunities to exhibit and sell your works in a variety of venues and markets.   Members can group together to take on responsibility for running the markets, such as North End Road and the Parsons Green Fair.

We regularly exhibit at the Lilyville Surgery, in 6 week slots, changing over on the Friday  between 1 and 2pm.   It is a great opportunity to hang 12+ paintings plus one in the Library and see if you can boost interest and sales.   If you would like to book a slot , please email: patricia@patriciawatson.co.uk

North End Road Open Markets:

The council are increasingly setting the North End Road into a free-from-traffic zone on quarterly days throughout the year:  March,  June, September & December.  (We are awaiting confirmation of dates.)   We ask our Scholars to help organise and run what can be a double stall with awning under SoFAP’s banner.   This is ideal for smaller artworks at less than £100, cards, and other little items.  Christmas is the best turnout where 10,000 people come along.   To make it work we need at least 6 members, and you have to be there to look after the stall – as this is a team effort.  If you are interested, please contact Lucy Strathon by email (lucy.strathon@googlemail.com).

Parsons Green Fair – usually the first weekend of July

Another opportunity for members who are interested to join forces, take advantage of SoFAP’s awning, and create a stall usually in the wonderful sunshine in July.   This is a buzzy event, and similar to the NER market is ideal for small, good value art works, ceramics and cards.   If you are interested please contact Patricia Watson by email.

Posk Gallery in the Polish Centre (238-246 King Street W60RF),  0208 742 6430, could be a good venue for a solo or combined exhibition.

If you know of other venues and markets, please send details to any committee member so we can share the details for everyone.
