Hellllllo everybody! Are you London-based and looking for something cultural to do this weekend? Well then I have some exciting news for you. I’ve just got wind of a little gem of a family-friendly pop up event that will be taking place this weekend on Friday 11 – Sunday 13 May that I’m sure you’ll want to know about. It’s an open house art exhibition courtesy of Beaubridge, Chester Row and the Young Artist Partnership which will be a chance to see a stunning newly built house at Charles Baker Place in Wandsworth Village, sip on something cool and check out the bathrooms while appreciating some art by young artists under the YAP….
The open house will be open until from 11am until 4pm each day and there will be some fab works on show against the backdrop of this totally gorgeous property (I know, I toured the houses before they were sold, but now only one remains which you can take a look at here).
So to entice you to come, make merry, mingle, soak in the beauty of the property and support youth art, I had little Q & A with Annabel Seal, founder of the Young Artist Partnership to give you a little sneak peek of this weekend’s events:
So what exactly is the Young Artist Partnership?
YAP – Young Artist Partnership was founded 7 years ago as a platform supporting young artists. We source unusual venues for pop up shows, mentoring the artists and regularly have a charity link.
Why is it so important we get behind young art like this?
We believe that in order to find success as a young artist they need to find different market places from the norm to show their work to potential collectors interested in supporting artists starting out and growing their careers.

What artwork can we expect to be showcased?
The artists showing are early career artists having won many awards and their works are in collections across Europe.
Can you share with us some of the highlights of the exhibition/ones to watch?
Phil Rae-Scott concerned with longevity, specifically chooses quality materials to create complex abstract sculptures with tactile surfaces. Philip predominately works in metal, attracted by its strength, versatility, and the possibility of creating illusive, slender sculptures otherwise unachievable in other materials.
Amelia Sampson a multiple award winner has created a piece with anti aircraft shell casings and marble in a brass and glass box representing war and peace.
Maddie Hills creates beautiful interior canvases recently featured in the Evening Standard.
Aubrey Higgins vibrant works are a representation of life after illness. After a residency in he Arctic Hannah scott’s works are inspired by the relationship between the consumer lifestyle in Britain and the Arctic environment and the impact on plastic waste. Christopher Green works en plein air with pen and ink view of London and some impressive commissions
If you’d like to attend this fantastic pop up and totally free event please do RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy art and house viewing everybody!
