180 London artists exhibited over two weekends in September 2017
BEAT features over 180 individual artists in an annual event spanning two weekends and over 60 venues. The event is free for visitors, offering an engaging way to see and buy some of the unique artwork being created by local artists.
BEAT’s Chair, Kitty Hartnell, says, “There is a great mix of artists ranging from first time exhibitors to established artists who have exhibited internationally and in world renowned art institutions such as the Royal Academy of Arts.”
BEAT includes artists working in a broad range of media, including but not limited to painting; printing; textiles; sculpture; mosaics; metal work; photography; ceramics: jewellery and woodwork.
Kaisa Kangro – Wildlife sculptures and drawings
Sometimes I like finding humour in my work, for example caught-off-guard moments that happen with everyone every now and then. I believe that Life has an amazing sense of humour and that she loves to have a good laugh. Sometimes it’s on us, other times at herself. In the end of the day, some random things that happen unexpectedly are truly amusing. It breaks the monotony and the routine and in that moment Life surprises with its presence, and so we feel more alive, more awkward, more humble, more connected.
I took part on both weekends, exhibiting my sculptures and drawings. I exhibited with nine other artists at St Barnabas Church: Pitshanger Ln, London W5 1QG.

BEAT is a not for profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers.
In September 2015 a number of like-minded artists from several local Ealing-based art groups met to form the origins of BEAT. The aim was to create a local platform for local artists to showcase their work to the public through the medium of an annual Art Trail. In 2016 the first BEAT event was held with over 150 participating artists and 54 exhibiting venues across the Borough.
