Pick Me Up 2014 : Somerset House
The UK’s original contemporary graphic arts festival Pick Me Up returns for its fifth year.
The festival is aimed at being a contrast to the ‘traditional’ art fair. Pick Me Up is a fun and informal festival featuring quirky studio spaces in which to shop for affordable artwork from the great and good of graphic arts, and a daily, lively line-up of events which encourage both budding and bonafide artists of all ages to get involved.
The exciting schedule of events, activities and special guests leading talks and workshops are all included free with entry, so it well worth getting stuck in.
New for 2014 is Pick Me Up Radio, which streams live from Somerset House. With specially invited DJs, interviews and take-over days, festival-goers are able to see the radio broadcasts being put together live and listen online remotely.
Throughout the festival you will be able to see works from some of the rising international stars of the Graphic Arts world including Isabel Greenberg, Edward Carvalho-Monaghan and Jack Hudson.
