Westland Place Open Studios

(Above: "You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore" by Gordon Beswick 2012) Westland Place Studios is a couple of minutes walk from Old Street Tube (near The Moorfields Eye Hospital).
Gordon Beswick is one of the many artists inviting you to see where he works and what he's been up to. Why not pop along this Saturday (the 30th)from 11am until 5pm. Westland Place Studios is located right next door to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant, and when the restaurant celebrates its 10th birthday with a street party the studios will be open to tempt visitors in to discover some amazing art. There have been artists studios at 3-11 Westland Place for 20 years, making it one of the longest running creative hubs in the Hoxton / Old Street area. 21 studios, spread over four floors of this former tobacco industry factory, house the workspaces of 23 artists. Their work spans a large range of art disciplines and creative approaches making this an exciting creative environment for all working in the building as well those visiting. Each studio is as unique as the endeavours of the artist working within it. The occupants of Westland Place studios invite you to explore their workspaces, view their accomplished and varied works and be tempted to buy or commission some art.
