Last weekend it was the beach in Hastings, this weekend is back to Hackney Wick and the delight at that is Hackney WickED and a new #43ArtDrop piece.
The always rewarding Hackney WickED DIY open studios weekend is upon us once more, studios open and art alive all over the Wick, around Fish Island and happening all over the weekend. All kinds of things going on in the surviving studios and art spaces, performance, painting and lots lots more, celebrate Hackney Wick while you still can
“And once again there will be an art drop from Sean Worrall, last year it was part of the #365ArtDrops piece, the year before it was 100 pieces painted on material found and recycled. This year it will be another in the series of #43 events that have seen things like a 43 minute art shows happen with 43 minutes of warning under railway bridges, drops of 43 pieces of art on the 43rd day (left hanging for people to take), a series of larger (thorny) paintings on sale as a show for just £43, and a series of 43 small canvas paintings at the Art Car Boot Fair..
43 pieces of art, 43 paintings on recycled wood, 43 pieces left hanging around the Wick over the weekend, there for people to take should they wish to. #43ArtDrop”
