In celebration of daffodils, tulips and the joy of splashing paint in the afternoon sunshine,we artists down at the Hideaway Studio have decided to put on an exhibition this coming weekend!
Bring eyes that love colour, a bicycle or a picnic to enjoy the canals and a camera in case the kingfisher appears!
Here's the blurb -
Brentford’s artists’ quarter - Johnson’s Island at the end of Catherine Wheel Road - is putting on a show of its resident artists’ work the first weekend of April.
Set among the houseboats of the Grand Union Canal, the pint-sized island once formed part of Isambard Brunel’s Brentford Dock.
Now it is home to a vibrant community of artists and artisans. For most of the year it is closed to the public but over the weekend of 2-3 April the doors will be open and a wide variety of artistic work will be on display.
If you are an art lover, or looking for a unique gift - and whether your thing is painting or puppet-making, sculpture or mosaics, book-binding or bicycle bags - come to this magical corner of Brentford.
The studios are open from 11-6, Saturday and Sunday.Nearest tube:Gunnersbury. Nearest trains:Kew Bridge or Brentford. Buses: 65, 195, 235, 237, 267, E2, E8, H91
