Deadline Looms For Artists Wanting To Join In Merton Arts Festival

Annual event takes place over two September weekends

The deadline is looming for local artists interested in taking part in the Merton Arts Festival 2018, which includes artist open house events across the borough over the weekends of September 15-16 and 22-23. 

The deadline for Open Houses/Studios is Monday (May 14).

The deadline for Taking Liberties open exhibition is June 11. 

Have you visited in the past and wondered about taking part yourself? Why not give it a go? 

An easy first step would be to enter one or two artworks for the festival’s themed open exhibitions. This year the theme for the open exhibitions is Taking Liberties, which can be interpreted as widely as you like!

Organisers also welcome new applications for open house/studios. If you don't fancy doing that, why not find a café or other venue in Merton where you could hang your work?
