Lonely HeARTS

Interested in taking part in the Summer Art Weeks but need a venue or want to share with others?

Registration for 2021 opened on Monday 15th February, so now is the time to start getting in your Lonely HeARTS submissions.

It's your responsibility to find and organise a venue for your event before you sign up, but we appreciate that some artists are unable to exhibit from their own home or studio. While many visitors like to see the artists in their own environment, others prefer public venues rather than private homes. Experience also shows that groups of artists often attract greater footfall than those exhibiting on their own, but working as a group can present its own challenges.

Following the success of Lonely HeARTS for previous events – which resulted in lots of matches – we are again encouraging artists to come together by offering to share their venue with other artists. Or, if you don't have your own venue, let's see if we can put you in touch with other lonely heARTists! 

Email the following information to admin@warwickshireopenstudios.org and we'll post your details on here to try and match you up.

Opportunities for 2021

Late-breaking Venue Opportunities - URGENT ACTION 

Temperance Cafe in Leamington Spa have offered their venue for artists to exhibit. The deadline for getting a space here is 5pm on Monday 29th - so you will need to act fast!

Here is what they have posted on Facebook, which includes how to get in touch with them

Looking for a venue:

Space required for 1 artist - Warwick

Glenys Bishop lives in Warwick and is a painter working in oil, acrylic and ink drawings. She is looking for a venue with a table and some hanging space. 

Glenys registered for WOS last year - you can see her entry in the WOS2020 brochure here. More of her work can be found on her website here and on her artist gallery on the WOS website here.

If you can help then please contact Glenys directly at bishopgfl@yahoo.co.uk or myself at matthew.rea@stinkingdaisy.co.uk

Space required for 1 artist - Leamington (or Warwick/Kenilworth)

Bill Savage creates bodyform objet d’art. He is based in Leamington. He is looking for a venue to display his funky furniture created from re-engineered manikins. Ideally this needs to be in Leamington but Warwick or Kenilworth would work fine. Bill needs wall & floor space - but doesn't need any table space.

Examples of Bill's work can be found on Etsy here

If you can help then please contact Bill directly at wig.wam@gmx.com. Or alternatively contact myself at matthew.rea@stinkingdaisy.co.uk
