THE LOVELY GALLERY
SUMMER OPEN WINNERS EXHIBITION
An exhibition of work by eight artists, whose entries in the 2015 Sydenham Artists Trail summer Open Exhibition were voted “most popular” by visitors, will be shown at The Lovely Gallery 140 Sydenham Road SE26 5JZ from Saturday 12 March to Sunday 20 March 2016 – Thursday to Sundays only (closed Monday to Wednesday) from 12 noon to 6pm.
The Private View is 11th March 6-9pm – all welcome.
All over for another year. Exhausting but so rewarding.
It has been inspiring to meet many artists, hosts and visitors and to hear their comments about the Trail and the art. So a big thank you them all – the artists, the venue hosts, our sponsors Property World, the Sydenham Arts Festival team and the visitors who have taken part in this year’s wonderful Artists Trail.
If you would like to take part as an artist next year, or would like to offer your home, studio or exhibition space to show our “homeless” artists work, or if you just want to be on our mailing list please Contact us.
We hope this website and the twitter @SydArtistsTrail will not moulder until next year and might become the de-facto source of information about Sydenham artists, their exhibitions and events throughout the year. If you have any ideas about how it might be used, or want your up-coming exhibition broadcast, let us know, either via email to email@example.com or via the Contacts page or a tweet @SydArtistsTrail
Best wishes from the Artists Trail team:
Alan, Annabel, Bruce, Nick, Pippa & Yoke

Sydenham Arts, previously Sydenham Arts Festival, have printed a fabulous new quarterly magazine “South Circular which will highlight all the artistic endeavours taking place in the area.
You might have seen “our” South Circular page with details about this year’s Artists Trail – read the details here.
A STUDIO VISIT
There is a limited amount of printed space in South Circular so here is the full profile of local glass artist Pippa Stacey in the Spring 2015 edition.
It seems appropriate that Pippa Stacey should be the first artist to be interviewed for South Circular as she was the person who first suggested having an art festival on the Thorpe estate even before the Sydenham Arts festival started in 2009. Although the Thorpe’s idea didn’t get off the ground the Artists Trail idea was incorporated into the festival and has become an enjoyable and successful feature for the last 6 years. Pippa has been involved every year, although to a lesser extent recently as her professional glass and teaching careers expand.
Pippa studied at Middlesex University and then taught fashion and design there for quite a few years. In the early 1980’s Pippa worked with the designer David Hicks and help establish his fashion label in Japan. This continued until Pippa had a break due to ill health and decided that she wanted to change course and teach children.
Pippa now teaches art to home educated children and to adults, giving them an opportunity to sit GCSE exams which they wouldn’t otherwise have, leading to A level course work and helping students prepare their foundation portfolios. In addition Pippa teaches a variety of daytime and evening glass classes at Granville Park for Community Education Lewisham and Master Classes in glass at Tonbridge Adult Education Centre where she enjoys teaching and being inspired by techniques being used by others.
Pippa started working with glass in 2001 at an adult education class at the sadly now defunct Kirkdale Institute learning how to lead glass and making two leaded glass panels for her front door. After three years of adult education classes, Pippa studied at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design (CSM). She successfully graduated from both the Glass and Architecture and Glass and Fine Art PG Courses. During her time at CSM, Pippa was awarded a Commendation from The Worshipful Company of Glaziers for the Stevens Competition, and First Prize for the Lankelly Chase Foundation Competition.
Pippa and seven other Central Saint Martins alumni formed the Teepee Glass collective of glass artists in 2006 www.teepeeglass.com, named as a result of camping in a teepee at the International Festival of Glass (IFG) in Stourbridge. They reform periodically to exhibit and collaborate. Pippa will be taking part in this year’s IFG showing with the Contemporary Glass Society. In the spring Pippa will be showing some of her work alongside Teepee Glass at Patch Rogers Arts and Crafts Department in Liberty, Regent Street.
Pippa’s glasswork is varied, from the magical world of glass books and related curiosities, to glass bowls, tiles and panels, using printing, hand-painting and etching techniques. Glass work is designed from original drawings and decorated to create unique and individual pieces. Her design has always been inspired by the things she loves and feels deeply for. She developed her designs at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design based on nature and positive and negative imagery.
Pippa has drawn from when she was tiny and all her glass designs start as a drawing. The balancing of positive and negative images are important to her as “light and dark works so well with glass”. She transfers her drawn image onto glass using a screen printing technique and the glass is fired in a kiln in the studio in her garden full of topiary and a fernery. The glass is then often fused and slumped into bowl and other shapes. She loves to experiment, finding out what works and what doesn’t, passing on new discoveries to her students.
In addition Pippa makes unique glass beads and pendants in collaboration with Sally Earlam’s silver designer jewellery collection. Glass production takes up the majority of her time with sales in six retail outlets across the UK. Locally her glass can be found at the Kirkdale Bookshop in Sydenham, Alexandra Nurseries in Penge and Stag & Bow in Forest Hill. She is currently very busy cutting glass hearts for St Valentine ’s Day gifts – not an easy task if you have ever tried! You can see examples of her work on her website www.pipstaceyglass.com and on her Sydenham Artists page here.
