Studio Sharing Wanted for SEOS 2014
Although undecided whether to show again in 2014, I would need to share a studio space in the South London area (Bromley, Croydon etc or in North West Kent or North Surrey)as I do not have my own space. Initially I would be grateful for any information about available space.

Art Scam - again!
It's amazing how the same old scams come around as regular as clockwork. We heard about this one a year ago and it's back again. It goes like this:
You get a phone call from someone asking you to contribute to a charity magazine where your paintings will be advertised. You are told the magazine will be distributed to top galleries in London and the Home Counties. It is said to be sponsored by well known celebrities and in support of disabled children or similar charity.
As in previous scams of this type, the caller will be very flattering about your work, even if they haven't actually seen it. The asking price starts at about £400 + VAT but will soon drop if you say it's too much. The person calling will be very persistent.
But only a small number of these magazines are printed and distributed, indeed you may never find them anywhere in your part of the country. If you get one of these calls, tell them not to call again, hang up and hang on to your hard earned money!
Gill Bridgestock is Guest Artist at this years' AVA Christmas Fair at Godinton House Ashford TN23 3BP 29Nov -30Nov - 1Dec 11am - 4pm admission free

Hello all, I need some studio space so am selling some paintings at a big discount. This one is an Andalusian horse size 40x30 inch oil on 3D canvas and costs £350 as opposed to £650. More and more people are buying original paintings now as they have a life that prints just never will. Contact me if interested or want to see more and please pass on to anyone who might be. www.gillbustamante.com The painting she is promoting this request with is here if you want to look at it. https://www.facebook.com/krusebustamante?hc_location=stream Please contact her direct.
We still have some spaces at Sevenoaks Adult Ed for various courses. The painting ones are filling up but I have prepared a new one about illustration, which will be great fun designing briefs.
