Carla is doing sterling work getting ARThouse – Richmond Open Studios organised for June / July. There is a great website which lists all the artists and shows the various locations. I am listed under ‘Other Media’ and am No. 54 Rosanna Henderson. I will be exhibiting at the Harris + Hoole Coffee Shop in St. Margarets, Twickenham for the duration of the exhibition.
There will be a brochure available for visitors nearer the time that shows everything in much more detail with trail maps, venues, artist information and contacts. If you would like a brochure, let me know and I shall save one for you.
For us artists, there will be posters, banners and flags so we can promote ourselves. We will all be doing as much as we can to spread the word through Facebook and social media. If would be great if you could help me spread the word, I am on Facebook but not Twitter so if someone wants to be my Twitter Rep, that would be greatly appreciated.
I also have some ‘Save The Date Postcards’ to distribute and put into shops, libraries etc. Again, if you are able to pass some of these cards among your contacts, that would be helpful. Thank you.
Final piece of exciting news on the event, there is going to be a ‘Pop Up Exhibition’ in a venue to be decided in Twickenham prior to the actual Open Studios, where each artist will be able to display one piece of work. The exhibition will be a taster for the visiting public to view the varied artwork on offer and encourage them to visit the individual venues during the open weekends. Visitors will be able to view work, pick up brochures and talk to artists and staff to find out more about the local visual arts in Richmond upon Thames.
So, there is certainly a lot of hard work going on to pull this all together so it is now up to us artists (with a little help from our friends) to get the word out and interest generated.
REQUEST: Please help spread the word!
