Calling all Artists Trail hosts.

This year we are fortunate that Forest Hill School will allow local artists to exhibit alongside the students GCSE artwork, however we are always looking for additional venues. If you have a space that could be available to show artists work, whether it’s a home, studio space, a shop or a cafe, even if it’s just for one of the weekends, please contact the Artists Trail team, as above.



10 years 100 local venues 1,000 artists 10,000 pieces of art!

The 10th year of the Sydenham Artists Trail was definitely something to celebrate! Paintings, prints, ceramics, glass, jewellery, textiles and sculpture at 30 locations in and around Sydenham, Honor Oak and Penge.

Highlights were:

The Brockley Potters in Normanton Street; Forest Hill School in Dacres Road showing their students’ GCSE artwork – the next generation of Sydenham artists; new artists and new venues in Champion Crescent, Broseley Grove, Alexandra Road, Tredown Road, Sydenham Hill and Amberley Grove and old favourites in Venner Road, Sydenham Road, Peak Hill, on the Thorpes estate, at the Brown and Green cafe in Mayow Park, the lovely Grow Mayow Community Gardens and  Pippa Stacy’s student’s “It’s A Small World”  exhibition at Alexandra Nurseries.

Sydenham  Community Library hosted 25 printmakers and painters, with a book, craft and plant sale and glass workshop. There were other workshops suitable for children and adults from jewellery, drawing, painting, printing, and photography – even an artist-led poetry workshop. In other places artists demonstrated their artistic skills.

St Christopher’s Arts ‘Time in the light’ festival and the Lovely Gallery ‘Summer exhibition’ opened throughout the festival. Once again high street traders allowed artists to exhibit in their windows (the High Street Art Gallery) and on their walls and the Dolphin exhibition allowed you to appreciate the art while you take a welcome refreshment break. We added a couple of incentives for visitors (and children) with two prize draw for those collecting stamps in their brochure at different venues.

We hope you enjoyed the Trail as much as we enjoyed making art. Thanks to all the artists, hosts and volunteers without whose hard work the Artists Trail would not be possible. Special thanks go to our sponsors Dan and Richard Crowley of Propertyworld.
