SFSA Painting Open

SFSA Painting Open 2018As an arts organisation we are constantly seeking to create opportunities for our studio members and the wider visual arts community. Our two previous Painting Opens have been a true celebration of painting, bringing artists and buyers from the local area together. As a true open we don't have a submission panel, all works are accepted.

The Painting Open has been over subscribed for the last two years. To increase the amount of artists we can include in the show we are partnering with the Deptford does Art Gallery which means we can take just over 100 artists. The show will display over the two locations creating a true community energy around the show.
