This weekend, Capital Art Gallery in Eltham is hosting a ‘Bumper Art Weekend’. Artwork selected by gallery owner Karl Sprout will be on show, while on Saturday 18, the gallery is holding an evening of comedy, art and music.

Artists with work being exhibited include Tatiana Radko, a Russian artist based in London who mainly works in oil and canvas, watercolours, or pastel, but also experiments with monotype techniques. The works of Metin Salih – known for his Mad Men-esque background, having illustrated or painted for a large number of brands – will be among the offering on show, too. Paul Kaminski, who’s held over 20 solo exhibitions in Germany over the past ten years, will also be exhibiting his work, as will portrait and life studies specialist Steve Sargeant.

“As the Gallery is attracting more and more international artists, I feel that the public should be made aware that an art gallery portraying these artists is right on their doorstep,” says Karl, who is committed to showcasing work from a diverse range of artists, as well as art being sold at an affordable price point. “Anyone visiting this exhibition can rest assured that there will be art to adorn any home, all at affordable prices,” he says.

The gallery is open to visitors between 10am – 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Three large rooms will be displaying works of all mediums, ranging from watercolours and pastels to handmade glassware and bronze ceramics.

If you can’t make it this weekend, more events are in the pipeline. Capital Art Gallery turns three this September and festivities are already being planned to mark the occasion, which will be open to the public to attend.
