Our summer art show open in Brixton library

The Blog & Bugle Summer Arts Show runs until 4 August at Brixton Library. Twenty-nine local artists are exhibiting their work in two categories (amateur and professional).

There will be a winner in each category decided by a public vote which is taking place during the show. Make sure you visit the library and vote for your favourites. Winners will be announced on 6 August.

Bugle Arts Editor Leslie Manesseh welcomed artists, local dignitaries and invited guests to an early view of the exhibition on Tuesday 3 August. He thanked everyone for coming and told the exhibitors. “This is the first time for the Summer Arts Show. There has been lots of very positive feedback about the artists work already.” Leslie also thanked the library and its staff for their enthusiasm and support.

Below are a selection of pics from the preview. Visit the library and vote for your favourite.
