Art Walk @ Wessex guided tour #3 Sun March 26, 11:30am


The wonderful bi-annual Wessex Art Open House is back, and this year we have been asked to provide guided tours which will not only bring you straight to the artists' studios & explain their background & work, but will also tell you the history of these wonderful Black & White homes.

You have two tours to choose from, each lasting 2 hours, at 2 different times (11:30 & 2:30pm) on 2 dates (25th & 26th). You can sign up for one or both tours through this link at a promo rate of $25 ,or at our registration counter at La Bussola Restaurant (5B Portsdown Rd) for $30. Please note each tour is restricted to a maximum of 15 people.

Our 2 hour walking tours will bring you to different parts of the lovely Wessex Estate and you will get to step into the studios of the artists housed there. You will see a range of artworks - ceramics, paintings, photography, abstract works, charcoal works, works inspired by nature/Peranakan tiles - the selection and diversity is amazing. We'll have a nice slow walk between the studios, allowing a view of the Queenstown estate, including the old railway crossing, to look at the few remaining SIT (Singapore Improvement Trust) flats in the nearby Tanglin Halt estate, and to hear the stories of two different estates, so near yet so different.
