Studio crimbo clear out


Studio 18’s creative director Zac Walsh has been exhibiting for over 30 years, recently showing at this year's Royal Academy summer show with a notorious mention in the Guardian. Anybody familiar with Studio 18 and its many projects will know that Zac, now in his 5th year developing and building the studios, has worked incredibly hard to bring the community together whilst also supporting creatives from all disciplines and ages. However he still manages to develop his own creative practice which has seen many changes over the last three decades. This exhibition/studio clearout gives a rare chance to glimpse that development with 300 works on display, also having a twofold intention of raising finances for ongoing Studio 18 project build. This will be in the form of an open bid on the majority of pieces with no reserve. 


This is an exciting opportunity to win a piece from a career artist for as little or as much as you’d like, whilst simultaneously feeding into an extraordinary space to bring you more events and positively affect the people of Stroud. A win-win of funky lovely vibes and a great idea for a festive present for your closest and dearest, or a great way of kick-starting your new art collection. Whichever, ‘Burn it or Have it’ will prove to be a fun and fascinating event.


Early bidding will start on Thursday 15th December and continue through to the main event on Saturday 17th, where bidding will stop promptly at 8pm. Winning bidders, if they so wish, will be able to take their pieces off the wall and take home there and then. 


Early bidding:

Thursday 15th 1pm - 5pm

Friday 16th 1pm - 5pm


Main event: Saturday 17th Dec 6pm-9:30pm bidding ends at 8pm.
