I have been given the opportunity of staying on at Kingsgate Workshops in Kilburn after my residency has finished at the end of August. The studio is subsidised and out in the yard area and I'm able to share it with someone. It's 264 square foot, going for £264 per month which we'd split. I haven't seen the space yet but its similar to the one I'm in now and they plan to refurbish before September. A few details:
You'd pay £132 per month (half £264)
The contract is for 18 months.
Start date 1st September
There is a £75 one off admin fee.
24 hour access
Use of microwave and kettle in main block
Really close to West Hampstead overground and tube and Kilburn tube.
Probably some other things I'm forgetting
If you are at all interested or can think or anyone who might be do get in touch. If the rent is slightly too much we can split the space and rent in a different way. If you can't move in in September, let me know and we can sort something out. Any other questions just let me know.
Please do feel free to pass on. Looking for someone who is really engaged in their practice and wants to use the space.
Thanks so much and apologies if this is of no interest.
Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
