Fox & Squirrel Art Walk

Home > London > Art | Exhibitions | Galleries | Walks
Published October 7th 2011
London has so much art contained within its borders that an art junkie would have to live to 174 to be able to see it all. Or possibly 175.

Galleries and museums across the capital house tons of paintings, sculptures, carvings, ceramics, photos - you name it, London has it in abundance.

On top of that, the city has a vibe that is a magnet for upcoming and established artists from around the world.

They want to come here to produce new work or share and exhibit what they've already made.

There are plenty of visitors and locals who would very much like to dip their toe into the London art scene, but when they see the size and depth of the pool, they run screaming in the other direction, for fear of being utterly overwhelmed.

So allow me to introduce you to Fox & Squirrel, a group that will take you by the hand and gently ease you into London's magical world of art, calmly revealing all that it has to offer.

Your guide on a Fox & Squirrel Art Walk will be a curator and art historian, so someone who knows their stuff. You'll be taken to three different locations/galleries/places of artistic interest on your walk, during which time you'll get to learn about the artist who created the work you're enjoying.

The guide will also take some time to expand the meaning of the art by telling you about its background and how it came to be.

You'll also be able to meet some of the people working behind the scenes at the gallery.

Of course, your guide will be more than happy to discuss any of the work you see - in fact, it's pretty certain they'll want to hear your opinion about it.

And should you have any questions about the art you see, or about the London art scene in general, your guide should be able to help.

Fox & Squirrel Art Walks last about 90 minutes and cost 15.
