Public will be invited to view works of 88 artists this September

After a year of virtual events during the pandemic, Artists at Home, will be opening to the public again from 17-19 September.

The event which is by estate agent Horton and Garton, includes artists from Hammersmith, Chiswick and Shepherd’s Bush

“This year, we are excited to welcome a number of new artists to Artists at Home. Many of them have visited Artists at Home for a number of years before applying to join, and the array and quality of work on offer this year is simply incredible,” says Kathryn Davey, Chair of Artists at Home.

“We have all been busy creating over the lockdowns and are more eager than ever to open up our studios to visitors.”

There are 88 artists taking part in this year’s Artists at Home, 6 of whom are new to this year’s event – making this one of the largest cohorts to take part in any given year.

Artists at Home normally opens in the third week of June but this year has chosen an autumn weekend to ensure greater safety and confidence for artists opening their homes and for those visiting.

Artists at Home online remains open all year round on its updated website.

This features an interactive map for planning a route, current individual artists’ pages and a system to allow buyers to enquire about works.

Artists at Home was the first event of its kind in London – founded by artists Julian Trevelyan and Mary Fedden in 1973 and initially incorporating only a handful of studios. It has now grown to occupy a three-mile radius of Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherd’s Bush and has become a local institution – providing the public with both an opportunity to view and purchase original art and a chance to see where the artist works and lives.
