And the BEAT goes on in Ealing with an amazing art trail as more than 60 venues open their doors

Now in its sixth year – with a break during the 2020 pandemic – dozens of doors will be opening across Ealing once again this weekend ( Saturday 17th/Sun 18 Sept) for an art trail like no other – Borough of Ealing art Trail (BEAT).

More than 200 creatives are taking part in the annual open studios known as BEAT, with 68 venues involved which include community halls, libraries and many, many homes.There are a wide range of styles on display and a variety of mediums with everything from mosaics, ceramics, sculptures, woodwork, photography and of course paintings and drawings. The event aims to showcase Ealing’s huge artist community and it’s hoped help them to sell some of their work.


Former Hanwell local, Daniel Haskett, whose work can currently be seen on some of the vacant and boarded up shops in Ealing town centre, flew in from Berlin where he currently lives, to be part of this year’s exhibition and managed to create a digital tribute to the Queen whilst on the plane. The print entitled Farewell Ma’am is on display along with many of his other recognisable pieces at venue 54 in Hanwell and (weather permitting) Daniel is also demonstrating screen printing in the garden.


The musical heritage of Ealing and beyond has been recognised in works throughout the borough. Dmitri Miletskii (at venue 36 in Northfields) uses acrylic and oil on canvas and captures the energy and character of performing musicians, both classical and jazz.

Award winning portrait artist, Stella Tooth, has most recently been exhibiting at The Ealing project. She opens the door to her home on Elers Road (venue 44) to show more paintings of well-known musicians, entertainers and broadcasters and takes time out to explain about her new digital works.

Sarah Stanley often holds local courses and also creates beautiful mosaics for both inside and outside using a range of different materials including glass, marble stone and ceramic. Her work can be seen at venue 57 in W7.What’s striking about the variety of art is the vast array of really colourful pieces and how a seemingly ordinary living room can be totally transformed.
