As always the Open Studios have been a triumph this year - over 300 artists in Stroud District exhibiting - as some may know I have been away for a few days with family - very good - but still managed to get around a few - also many of the exhibitions (as opposed to the studios) are open until 30th June. Below I feature the three artists that have opened in this area...

Jackie Garner has recently moved into a house in Humphreys End and opened her workspace over the last two weekends as part of the Open Studios - great to meet this artist who has recently spent time in the Falklands documenting wildlife and is now involved in a project "investigating the wildlife species depicted in ancient Egyptian art" - see more about her work here. Great stuff.
Louise Van Den Moysenberg, who lives in Ruscombe and recently supported the Whiteshill and Ruscombe Arts and Crafts Show, (see here) was also open - love some of these paintings and the colours - in fact picked her out of the Open Studios guide book as one to look at. See Louise's website here.
The third artist in our area to open this year was Roger Jones - I didn't have time to visit this year but see more here. See also more re Open Studios and exhibitions here:
