Our Pop-up Shop & Art Show

Art location, location, location …

Art Group Wanstead artists are showing work in a number of venues this autumn and winter.
 
First, there will be a display at the Wanstead Festival on Christchurch Green on Sunday October 2.  On the same day, Christ Church will be showing more work by members.
 
From Friday October 14, the group’s generous supporter The Stow Bros is putting on a three-month changing art show at its premises at 117a Wanstead High Street. An opening reception will be held there on Thursday October 13 from 6.30pm with drinks and nibbles for artists and local residents. Drop in if you can, or pop by to see the exhibition during office hours.
 
During the first weekend of this show, the display area is being extended with extra art also being shown at Allan Burgess House, a few steps away from The Stow Bros. This centre, also known as  the “Corner House”, will be open from 10am-3pm on Saturday October 15 and noon-3pm on Sunday October 16.

Artists from Art Group Wanstead are being encouraged to show some of their work on the link fencing, for visitors to the high street and green to enjoy and contemplate. “At the very least, it will add extra colour and interest to the area,” said the art group’s founder, Donna Mizzi. “But, who knows? The idea could even eventually become a Little Bayswater Road,” she said, referring to the landmark display covering Hyde Park fences on Sundays. Group artists also have some innovative ideas that could be added to the Christchurch Green art experience if it proves to be a big draw. Admittedly, much of its success will depend on the weather.
