Comment on this story on the

Johnson's Island is a collection of small weatherboarded buildings bordering the Grand Union Canal at Brentford Lock. Once abandoned and derelict, the artist and globe maker James Bissell-Thomas discovered and restored it with style, love and determination; it is now a thriving artists colony with a small but perfectly formed gallery.

This is the venue for ‘The Little Picture Show’ featuring small works by local artists, Geraldine Cox, John James and Steven Devlin.
