BEAT is an annual art trail that takes place across the Borough of Ealing, allowing local artists to showcase their work as they open their homes and studios for two weekends each September. BEAT brings to life the wide variety of stunning creative talent that lives and works in Ealing, from painters to mosaic artists, sculptors, photographers, metalworkers, textiles and so much more.
With Covid-19 interrupting plans for a physical art trail in 2020, BEAT decided to create an online experience to showcase work this year and allow people to view and purchase artworks from their local area. This will take the form of an online open art auction running from 5th-13th September 2020, hosted on Jumblebee.co.uk. Not only will this provide an opportunity for people to buy wonderful art for their homes and support local artists, but it will also support Ealing Foodbank, with a proportion of the profits from every artwork sold going to support this most worthy of causes.
