Herts Open Studios 2013
September heralds that season in Hertfordshire again – the time for Herts Open Studios 2013. Between 7 to 29 September artists open their doors to show you their work – and you can meet artists and craftspeople across the county. Some artists work from home and invite you in through front or back doors; others have studios which may range from a shed at the bottom of the garden to a gallery on a high street or in a business park. Aren’t you just a tiny bit curious?
Well, there are plenty of finished works to look from painting, drawing, woodwork, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, jewellery, and glass.
Aren’t you just a teensy weensy bit curious?
If you are – curious I mean - look through the free glossy brochure that tells you the opening times and locations of every artist taking part across Hertfordshire.
As Mel Hilbrown, Chairman of Herts Visual Arts, says in the brochure’s Welcome, ‘Open Studios is completely free to visit – we want as many people as possible to see our artists’ work and to appreciate the great range of talent we have in Hertfordshire.’
So why not share your enthusiasm – and shed-loads of curiosity - by going to visit?
