We are delighted to announce the final line-up of artists selected for Etsy’s first ever art exhibition, to be held in October 2014 in London.
Over 600 talented Etsy sellers applied to be part of the exhibition, and we were wowed by the standard of entries. Fortunately, the tough decision of how to shortlist a small number of artists from the wealth of Etsy talent was not ours to make, but fell to our selection panel of experienced curators – Katherine Mellor, Matt Roberts from a-n and Lena Nix of Space Studios – more to come about them soon!
Covering disciplines ranging from oils to ceramics, the fifteen participating UK artists are:
Kristi Cumming, Lucy Pass, Timothy Gent, Ben Lewis Giles, Laura Bird, Vanessa Donnelly, Maya Mladenovic, William White, Lou Taylor, Kitty Cooper, James Brown, Midori Takaki, Becci Maryanne, Alice Duck and Kethi Copeland.
Congratulations to all our selected artists, and thank you to everyone who applied – we were truly inspired by your art and passion.
We’d like to invite the whole Etsy UK community to come along to the exhibition, entitled OPEN, at 5th Base Gallery on Heneage Street, London from October 17 – 19, 2014 (open Friday 10am – 8pm, Saturday 11am – 6pm and Sunday 11am – 3pm). We look forward to seeing you there!
