Local artists open their studios

I blogged about the Open Studios opening this month - see here and picture left of preview exhibition in the Museum in the Park - but I didn't in that blog mention properly the local artists opening...

Jackie Garner - world renowned wildlife artist is opening her studio at The Old Cider House in Humphreys End. It's open 11am - 6pm on both the weekends; 11 & 12 and 18 & 19 June. It'll also be open 6 - 9pm on Tuesday 14th June as a special evening opening. See her blog: http://garnerwildlifeart.wordpress.com

Dorte Shelley - at the Old School in Whiteshill uses both clay and paper - I've mentioned her already and Moira Buckley of Puckshole is exhibiting at Frogmarsh Mill porcelain and jewellery. The other two artists near us are Anna Bloomfield at 26 Byron Road, Farmhill with watercolours and mixed media and Heather Coleman at 311 Westward Road exhibiting jewellery, photography and costumes.

This is the 15th Site Festival 2011 - see full details here and download a programme here. As noted in the original post it gets bigger and better - over 460 artists at 78 sites! So lots and lots to see - am looking forward to the weekend.
