The last ever Open Studios to be held at The Lost Goods Building took place on June 6th & 7th - thankyou very much to everyone who came along, we hope that you had a good time and found inspirational things to buy... or covet. The guys from Papergrain came over on both Saturday and Sunday and wrote up their experience of the event here and here.

The crowning moment of the weekend was, of course, the 2nd Great Western Studios dog show. With rosettes awarded in 4 different categories: obedience, agility, tricks and best in show. The winner of last years best in show was in retirement this year so that rare honour fell to Flash, aka The Notorious P.U.G.

You can see more doggy photos on our blog.

In the week leading up to Open Studios, GWS featured twice in one issue of the Evening Standard - Liza Campbell wrote a piece about Open Studios and there was another piece written about our impending move to 65 Alfred Rd and the support that Westminster Council have given in order to achieve this. An appearance on ITV London news was also on the cards but we got bumped off the schedule by a crime feature - story of my life!

Felicity Powell has 2 shows opening in June. Firstly she is taking part in an exhibition at the British Museum titled Medals of Dishonour, which she has also co-curated, it opens on June 25th and runs through until September.

She also has a solo show running concurrently at Domo Baal in WC1 running from June 20th to July 25th.

For those who can watch Big Brother and take in the detail before reaching for the mute button, or indeed the off button, you might note that the cups that are being used in the house are none other than those made by Johanna Flores.

Lynn Parotti was emblazoned across the Daily Express on June 12th in an article on relationships being forged between property companies and artists. Her exhibition continues at Gallery 6.

Lastly, Kate Gibb has produced some work for the current issue of Wired Magazine. I haven't yet tracked down a copy of the magazine, but have purloined an image from Kate's work which she produced but was not used.

Kate is also about to run out of some of the editions of her work that she has been vending via her website so... if you've always had your eye on a piece of her work, now might be the time to take the plunge.
