The annual invitation to homes and studios is virtual this year
Artists at Home 2020
June 13, 2020
The Artists at Home event has had to adapt to current circumstances. Since 1973 artists in the Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherd’s Bush areas have been inviting people into their homes and studios to view their paintings, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery.
This year instead it is Artists (Staying) at Home with their work viewable in Open Virtual Studios. The event will begin at 6pm on 19 June
The organisers say, “This year, it is not possible for us to open our homes and meet you face to face, but our artists still have so much to share with you. On our website, you can browse our work, make enquiries and save your favourites. If you wish to purchase something this can be done directly with the artist. This is an exciting chance to discover new original work for your home whilst supporting our local community.”
You can preview the artists' work before the event if you sign in or register for a free Artists At Home account.
The event is supported by Horton and Garton an independent estate agent at the heart of the community in Hammersmith, Chiswick and Shepherd’s Bush.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.
One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
