A weekly update of new venues.

Supported by:

Lambeth’s original borough wide showcase for creative talent.

On the first weekend of October artists and crafts people across the borough of Lambeth will be opening their studio and work spaces to the public. Doors will be open from 10am to 6pm, 3rd and 4th October and admission will be free. Dots will be added to our map as artists and makers sign up to this year’s event.

Lambeth Open showcases the fantastic range of creative talent tucked away in our borough and is a great way to discover the various art spaces too often hidden in your neighbourhoods. Visitors will be able to see inside the artist’s studios and exhibition spaces for a unique personal insight into the individual technical processes.

On Monday 28th September we will also be opening Showcase Central at Unit S13 Pop Brixton displaying a selection artists’ and makers’ work from across the borough. This will be a great place to start your creative journey during the Lambeth Open weekend, pick up your art trails and find out more about our colourful community.

Private Views may be held at a number of exhibition spaces, see venues for details.


Martin Grover – Portico Gallery 2 – 23a Knights Hill, West Norwood SE27 0HS

Martin Grover is an established painter and screen printer. His inspirations are simple: childhood recollections, minor street scenes, small news items, poetry, popular songs, advertising, lost or abandoned ephemera, old 45’s, sheds and bus stops. His style can range from straight ahead realism to pop art parody through to whimsical illustration; all produced with wry humour and an occasional hint of melancholy.

Patrick Stern – 209A Coldharbour Lane, Loughbough Junction SW9

Patrick Stern has a career spanning a number of decades working glass in a variety of techniques. Currently concentrating on pate de verre, but including some hot worked blown glass vessels. On display are a selection of works, glass in various forms, materials, moulds and equipment used in their production.

The processes of making being very much an area of interest. Along with exploration of the diverse visual qualities resulting. Items on display range from beads and tumblers to cast glass dishes and pate de verre sculptures.

Ondrej Benes – The Brix, St Matthew’s Church, Brixton SW2 1JF

Ondrej Benes creates large scale figurative paintings, in a process where the picture is washed down with water and painted over again repeatedly. The figure is intensified so that it occupies the painting and the space arises around it, becoming an evocative environment. The space is bounded by walls, landscape, bodies of water. It is not unusual for Ondrej to spend a month of daily total transformations of the painting before it is right and thus finished.
