Open Studios is inching closer. If you are taking part, remember to keep an eye out for specific Open Studios emails. Another one is due your way shortly, and that will include an update on brochures, pavement branding and the start of your count-down checklists.
What a month we’ve had! Our amazing Big Art Fair has been and gone and Open Studios is well on the way.
If you didn’t make it to our Big Art Fair in mid-July, you certainly missed out. We had a bit of competition with the football, Wimbledon and melting heat, but still managed impressive visitor numbers and sales. We may be biased but the outstanding art was ably supported by the large bright space and professional screens. We even had some lovely live music for the PV (huge thank-you to the musicians for managing that in the heat).
Our Open Studios brochures and mini-guides arrived for the Big Art Fair PV and distribution is rolling out now. Have you started planning your visits yet?
Have a great Summer
Big Art Fair
