For the sixth year Exeter artists will be opening their doors to the public for Exeter’s Open Studios event which runs from 4-6 November 2011.
Studios, homes and gallery spaces will be open over the three days around the city, with artists welcoming people to see their work.
A huge range of art-forms will be on show this year, from Anthony Blenkinsopp’s traditional Russian icons, Ben Yates’s miniature cityscapes made from circuit boards inside acrylic and glass coffee tables to the delicate handmade ceramics and jewelry of Ann Cope in Topsham. Out at Marsh Barton Exeter’s only artists’ studio complex, EVA Studios, is also opening its doors, with over 14 artists and makers under one roof. With over 40 participating artists this years’ Exeter Open Studios will have something for everyone.
This year some of the artists will be offering workshops and demonstrations of their craft during the three days. These include, print-making, exploring paper pulp, 2D and 3D animation and oil painting techniques.
