Harrow Open Studios

Media Release – 29 May 2015

Harrow artists open their studios to the public from 6 June

The eighth annual Harrow Open Studios event will take place from Saturday 6th June to Monday 8th June, Saturday 13th June and Sunday 14th June 2015. Admission
to all studios is free.
Harrow Open Studios is an independent and diverse group of over 38 artists whose main focus, each year, is to invite the public to visit their homes and studios for an exhibition of their work. Visitors will be able to meet the artist, ask questions, purchase work or arrange a commission. 

West Drive, Harrow Weald will see six artists exhibiting their work in June. Five artists based at The Stables are Zalina Dewan (ceramicist), Gordon Cookson (wood turner), Morag vanGeyzel (jeweller) and two painters – Jenny Oliver and Christine Spring. Artwork is very suitable for unique gifts, reasonably priced, and there are greetings cards produced by several of the artists. Commissions are undertaken. At the other end of the road, Luke Teague is a young artist known for his portraits and landscapes.

Close to each other in North Harrow are marine and landscape artist Brian A. Collins and artist Dow Pichaiwatkomol, who took up art seriously after a bad accident eleven years ago. She paints animals, landscapes, flowers and figurative work, including life drawing. Also, Batool Shoghi, a multi-skilled mixed media artist working across photography and digital imagery as well as printing, painting and collage.


Three Northwood artists in the same family are showing together at Chester Road. Lucy Davies’ paintings include beautiful images of Cornwall and its distinctive flowers and scenery, Mary Pelham focuses on marine subjects for her paintings, while Harriet Pelham works with glass.

Police Warning: Cold calls

We (the Met Police) have had two complaints about a security company calling residents in Harrow and stating they are either connected to the Police or are part of a Government project to protect homes.
They purport to be from SSH Fire and security Ltd (please be aware there may be a legitimate company by this name not involved in this potential scam).
One of the phone numbers given by the company was 0845 413 3776 – this number does not exist.
There are no such projects or schemes in operation in the Harrow area.
If you do receive a call of this nature please do not give out any personal details to the caller and inform us on 101.
If you would like crime prevention advise in your home please contact your local NPT either through their e mail address which can be found vie Met.Police.uk then follow the link to Your Borough and put your postcode in the search area or by calling 101.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the two champions who raised this issue, than you for your vigilance and concern for others.
