This is the first year of Catford Art Trail and I'm proud to be a part of it. My involvement stemmed from exhibiting with Keith Arnold in the Sydenham Art Trail earlier this year in Beer Rebellion Sydenham, and I should have a bunch of new things to show in the exciting space. I'm in Unit X, a currently vacant store on Catford Broadway along with two other artists; Emi Ali (painter) and Valerie Stack (photography and pocket art).
I'm excited to meet the other two artists, to set up our little space and to see what else is on offer from the other talented people, there are 70 people showing in total. There is also a prize draw for those that visit 10 venues, of £100 worth of art from your selected artist.
The second 'Penge Day', organised by Glenn at 'Made in Penge' will involve stalls, live music, amusements, and there people of Penge, milling up and down the high street and celebrating the place they live.
Me and Dope, the prolific and popular local street artist should have a stall set up somewhere on the high street, selling a variety of our wares, chatting and taking it in turns to go and try bits of the many local food items that will no doubt be on offer up and down the street.
Come and have a look, and say 'Hello'!
