Release Date: 09/01/2017

Applications are now open for this year's Art House festival, which sees artists from across the borough open their homes and studios to the local community.

This is your chance to take part in the 22nd Art House festival which makes a welcome return over the two weekends of Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June and Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July.

This year's creative extravaganza is expected to bring together more than 500 artists and craftspeople of all levels, working in a range of disciplines from painting, sculpture and pottery to printmaking and photography.

The festival sees artists open their doors and studios to exhibit their work and offers visitors a unique glimpse into the space in which their artwork was created. Over the years, more and more artists have also begun to exhibit their work in cafes, shops, churches and other public buildings across the borough.

Richmond Council's Cabinet Member for Art and Culture, Cllr Meena Bond, said:

"Art House is always fabulously popular and this festival I'm sure will be no different - so get involved and show your creative flair. Culture is at the heart of our community and the standard of work exhibited by our residents is always very high. It's a highlight of Richmond's social calendar and joy to visit and take part in."
