Dulwich Library 2010
Dulwich Library, 31st October - 27th November 2010
Private View 3rd November 2010

Chiara SLWA has forged a strong bond with Dulwich Library over the last couple of years with the library hosting four SLWA exhibitions during this time, the most recent one finishing at the end of November. Each show has seen SLWA grow and develop and this latest exhibition has been a resounding success with several sales and great feedback from library users and visitors to the exhibition alike. Sale successes went to both friends of artists and to people off the street
The show was curated by Emily Druiff who, with her team of helpers hung the 46 works with flare and the military precision needed to get the job done in the short time between the work arriving at the library and the library opening to the public two hours later.
The Private View on November 3rd was a festive occasion with lots of wine and delicious canapés.

On the morning of October 13th the selection panel met to choose the work for the fourth SLWA exhibition to be held  at Dulwich Library. It took Emily Druiff, Mella Shaw and Maria Chevska more than two hours to view over 130 images and choose the final 46 pieces to be displayed. By lunchtime the final decisions had been made and the work will be on show in the library from 31st October until 27th  November.
The Private View is on the  3rd November  from 8.00 - 10:00 pm and the invitation is open to everyone.

If you missed us at Bankside Gallery last week here's another unparalled chance to see the work of lots of South London Women Artists.
34 of our group are participating in Dulwich Festival's Artists' Open House over the next two weekends - May 8th-9th and May 15th-16th.
