New Work

Here is one new print that I produced before Open Studios in September, entitled 'The Witches' Night Out'. Obviously, this should have been posted in time for Halloween! But it's within a week...!I just felt that I should update my blog with one new piece.
I am currently busy with my new book commission for The Folio Society, and am working on the cover. More details to appear later on!

OPEN STUDIOS 2011

There will be an Open Studios weekend at my studio building on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September, from 12-6pm. There are over 30 studios there, and many of the artists will be taking part, covering many mediums including painting, ceramics and sculpture. I will be exhibiting small etchings.
The address is: ACAVA Palace Wharf, 56 Rainville Road, Hammersmith, W6 9HS.
We are normally part of Open House London, and this year may be found on their website. 
Our studio building has a private terrace backing on to the Thames, between Hammersmith and Putney.
If you have any questions, you can email me at debramcfarlane@btinternet.com

Boat Race Day Open Studios- Photos

We held our mini Open Studios event on the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race Day, March 26th, and here are some photos from the day. The afternoon was quite well attended by friends of the artists and the public (and also the Mayor of Hammersmith and Fulham!).
                                            This is how my studio looked on the day.
                                                
This was the view from our studio terrace.

Our next main Open Studios event is scheduled for the third weekend in September (dates to follow), but we may hold another mini open studios day during the summer. I will post a date when I know.
