Crystal Palace Artists’ Open House

This Spring, the inaugural Crystal Palace Artists’ Open House will launch and give visitors access to more than 80 artists in their studios and local spaces for the first time. Covering the full spectrum of media – from painting, watercolour, sculpture, design, crafts, and photography – the event will celebrate the local creative community and put SE19 back on the map as a cultural destination for artists, collectors, Londoners and tourists alike. “Open House is a passionate free initiative that will give an amazing platform to the Crystal Palace artists. It will also offer visitors an exploration of hidden venues and off-the-beaten track studios. I’m thrilled to announce that 80 artists and artisans have already signed up. It will reveal Crystal Palace as an undiscovered creative gem.” Anna Jacobs, founder of The Crystal Palace’s Open House and exhibiting artist. “Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as painters Camille Pissarro and William White Warren who both visited the area in their lifetime and depicted local scenes and landscapes, this event will honour contemporary artists and activate exceptional sites.” …

BEING by Bethan McFadden

Bethan McFadden presents a selection of pencil and ink drawings. Using graphite as her discipline and ink as a tool for spontaneous expression, Bethan’s work merges observational studies of the natural world with a personal visual interpretation of the fluidity of thought and emotion. The ‘subjects’ depicted in BEING balance darkness with lightness, visceral elements with ethereal elements, the transient and the seemingly permanent, and a lightheartedness with more contemplative works. Being by Bethan McFadden 5th – 17th April 2019 Opening reception – Friday 5th from 6-9pm Jeannie Avent Gallery, 14 North Cross rd, London, SE22 9EU Open Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 6pm event page

“Watercolour Rivers”: an Art Exhibition by Maciek Malinowski and Joanna Szwej-Hawkin

Opens 31 January 2019 at Jeannie Avent Gallery, 14 North Cross Road, Dulwich, SE22 9EU. The exhibition features photographs by Maciek Malinowski and ceramics by Joanna Szwej-Hawkin. Their work will be on display until 12 February 2019. “The Watercolour Rivers project was created to show the beauty of Iceland. Above all, the beauty of her nature, which is unique and unparalleled. Looking at the island from a bird’s-eye view allows the landscape to be seen from an unknown and breathtaking perspective. The crystalline water flowing from the largest glacier in Europe, turns into rivers to reach the ocean. During the journey, it encounters thermal springs rich in various minerals, and depending on the type of sediment that it carries, changes tone to create amazing palettes of colour. Nature itself creates these texturally rich compositions. My role is to notice this beauty and through my photography, preserve and perpetuate these images. We are now beginning to understand how much we are destroying our planet. I want my photographs to help people realise what wonders we will lose if …
