BEAT – Borough of Ealing Art Trail will take place on 6-8th and 13-15th of September this year. Put the date in your diaries.
This is the 4th year of BEAT and it seems to grow bigger and better each time. We have 200 artists displaying their work in 80 venues throughout the Borough of Ealing. I will be taking part again and am also on the Committee with the self appointed title of “Brochure Queen” as I will be co-ordinating the distribution of 25,000 brochures with a great team of Distributors. The brochures should be ready in July so if you have any good outlets for them, do let me know.
I have really enjoyed my last 2 BEAT exhibitions. I was delighted to receive more visitors in my second year but am being realistically hopefully about numbers this time.
I like to display a ‘demonstration piece’ each time. This is a great way of showing a work in progress and as such people feel they can ask questions (they can anyway but the demo piece seems to prompt them). I then display the completed piece the following year. The first year it was my Tree of Life and last year it was a giant mirror.
I am also thinking of having some ‘themed’ areas this year and am working out the logistics – watch this space.
