Summer Open Studio with Johnsons Island Artists
Discover the tiny hive of creativity in this unique site
Come and discover the creative community on Johnson’s Island and enjoy its unique setting on the Grand Union Canal, between Kew Gardens and Syon Park. Hidden away for most of the year, the mixture of painters, printmakers, sculptors, makers and ceramicists will throw open the doors to their studios and invite you inside. There is also a gallery on site which will be showcasing the artists’ works.
This is an opportunity to buy or commission unique original artworks directly from the artists in their working environment and to enjoy the quirky surroundings, the atmosphere and the wildlife that helps inspire their work. Newcomers may be surprised to discover the quality and variety of creative endeavour tucked away from the bustle of the High Street in a serene canalside setting.
The studios are set within an eccentric collection of buildings; some dating back to the heyday of the canal network and others more akin to a beach hut on stilts. The Island is formed by a loop in the River Brent and is accessible via a footbridge from Catherine Wheel Road.
