London Rivers Week 2022: Living With Water art exhibition

July 9 @ 9:30 am - July 17 @ 5:30 pm

Dip you toe into an art exhibition of paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculpture, photography and film to celebrate water.

Glorious leafy Barnes sits on the inside of a meander, surrounded on three sides by water. Barnes Artists, in partnership with Friends of Barnes Common (FoBC), have come up with an inspiring and topical theme for this summer’s art show, celebrating the beauty of water, the surrounding flora and fauna, and the human life it supports.

Water is inspirational: the source of much pleasure, creativity and wellbeing, and we cannot live without it.

The River Thames, Beverley Brook, Leg O’ Mutton Reservoir, London Wetlands Centre and Barnes Pond are all integral water features of Barnes, inspiring many artists over the years. Master landscape artist J.M.W Turner visited Barnes in 1827, painting the river at the junction at Mortlake.

Dates and times: 9th-17th July 2022 at 9.30am-5pm 

Location: St Mary’s Church, Barnes
