Open Studios 2010

Another successful year with 195 artists participating across the county and an estimated 11,000+ visitors.

Apart from sales made at the time, commissions to come, and the more usual approaches to lecture, demonstrate and conduct workshops, members have advised us of some interesting opportunities that have arisen as a result of them participating in Open Studios this year. These include

  • requests to visit a Sculpture retreat in India
  • a display in Elstree Aerodrome Café
  • participating at Essex Silk Painters Festival
  • a variety of Schools projects, and
  • an exhibiting opportunity at the Natural History Museum!

The 2011 project dates have been agreed as 10 Sept - 2 Oct, and it will be Herts Open Studios 21st Birthday. Further details to follow in our February Newsletter.
