24 - 25 Sep & 1 - 2 Oct The Catford Arts Trail : 11am - 6pm
Next weekend, a free Catford Arts Trail/Open House event opens to celebrate creativity in Catford. Local artists and makers will show their work in various homes, business and public spaces.
A district known mostly for the grimy (some would say charming) landmark of a foreboding cat in pursuit of an invisible, of what I can only image to be a rather large rodent or ball of yarn, will be having it's first ever Arts Trail! Yay!
Catford is an area that is slowly being regenerated, and partly as a result, an eclectic art scene is steadily revealing itself - and I am really excited to be part of it.
I will be sharing selected pieces from the Still I Rise and Illustrated Jamaican Proverbs collections, and of course I will have the book with me. So if you missed out on the launch, this will be a great opportunity to see the work and book in the flesh. And dare I say purchase a signed copy :)
On the Trail there will be potters, fine artists, printmakers, workshops and much more. I will be exhibiting alongside some great artists of varying disciplines, from installation artists to paper sculptor at venue 26. All work will be on sale and you'll have the opportunity to meet the artists, and purchase should you feel so inclined! There's even an opportunity to win some art! It really is a great opportunity to see that creativity in Catford has excelled beyond that foreboding cat.
Hope to see you there.
