Dear older SLWA members! Last year I received my ‘Freedom Pass’ and have been travelling free in London and on the buses across the length and breadth of England. Yesterday I heard of another great opportunity, that is only available to those who have six decades of experience of life on our planet! And yes, today I would like to share that opportunity with you!!! [And no money need change hands!] This is how Southwark Arts Forum phrase it: “I’m hoping to put together a series of talks with older artists to celebrate their work and achievements. This would be part of the programme for Silver, Southwark’s celebrated festival for older people. … So I wondered within SLWA if there were any artists who are over 60 who might be interested in being part of this – it would involve giving a talk about their work, showing some images, questions from the audience followed by time for refreshments and networking. The talks would be held around April, May and June. If you could let me know if you can think of anyone suitable and who would be willing, that would be great.” I have volunteered to liaise for SLWA on this one – if you would like to be involved please email me before Tuesday 25 January so I can pass on the names of our ‘team’ of SILVER SLWA s! Look forward to hearing from you! [But equally, I quite understand if you don’t want to advertise your maturity so publicly – the choice is yours!]

best wishes, Susan

The 5th exhibition of work by SLWA at Dulwich Library is to run from

Sunday 27 February– Saturday 26th March 2011.


This will coincide with Southwark’s 6th Year of Celebrating Women, and 100 years of International Women’s Day on 8 March 2011.

In order to explore further SLWA’s established relationship with Dulwich Library and this important centenary, we have decided to give our show a theme. And what better theme, given our location thanWOMEN and BOOKS

Your work might be inspired by a writer, a genre or a book, but if not, your work could be opened up to new meanings with the help of a new title.  ‘The Remains of the Day’, ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ or an inversion like ‘ a View from a Room’.  It would be great to enrich the show with texts – so please tell us about the work you are submitting!

This Spring and Autumn exhibition is now a fixture in the calendar and a good way to keep up the profile of our artists in a space that is fast establishing itself as a venue to view and buy small original artworks.
The library is a well used resource centre and the exhibition will be seen by large numbers of people during the month of March.
The previous shows have sold well and there have been several ‘after show sales’ proving that keeping our work in the public eye is important and effective for us as a group and as individuals.

SLWA Artist Talk and Open Mic

Sunday 14 November 2 – 4 pm (Arrive 1.45 pm)

Jane Newbery Gallery, 33 Dulwich Village. London SE21

80:20 Research suggests that 80 per cent of received information is via images, leaving 20 per cent for language.
That makes a photograph (or image) the greater part of the story.
Good news for image-makers.

Pia Randall-Goddard and Joan Byrne, photographers and writers, explore the dynamic between words and images. They will give a presentation of their work, and an overview of other photographers who have integrated the written word with photography.

They will also perform readings of their poems and short stories.
In an open mic other writers are invited to contribute 5 minute readings.   (more…)

Dulwich Picture Gallery invites you to enter an online art competition based on the current exhibition Salvator Rosa.

Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was one of the boldest and most powerfully inventive artists of 17th-century Italy. He was adopted as a hero by painters of the Romantic movement in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was mainly a painter of landscapes, but the range of his subject matter was unusually wide and included portraits, scenes of witchcraft and allegories.

A group of the works in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s current Salvator Rosa exhibition transport the viewer into a mysterious world of monstrous mythical creatures, bandits and magic. Drawing from Salvator Rosa’s work and a famous myth, legend or fantasy novel depict your own allegorical scene.

Your entry and a brief sentence about you (if you like) will be published on Dulwich OnView and the Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Flickr group The Rosa Competition.

  • Any flat medium – painting, drawing, mixed media, photos etc.
  • All entrants to be digital images of original works
  • Categories: under 18, 18 and over (more…)
