12 Open Doors ….

Courtyard Studios Open Weekend Saturday 5th / Sunday 6th October

With just over one week to go until our annual Open Studios Weekend, artists at the Courtyard Studios are starting to get into the swing of it. Brian Craig created the posters and invitations and these arrived back from the printers last week and have been either displayed or sent out to customers. Nita and I put together a press release and sent this along with photos of several of the artists, to all the local press and radio stations. The real job of getting the studios ready for the weekend starts next week and if everything goes as usual ….most of us will be madly cleaning, tidying and hanging pictures etc until late on the evening of Friday 4th Oct! I usually reckon it takes me two days to get my studio sorted out but I like to leave it until the latest possible moment so that I can continue painting for as long as possible.

Anyway, this year 12 artists will be opening their studio doors and I thought I’d use this week’s blog to let you know who they are and what they do.

The studios will be open: Saturday 5th October, 11am – 5pm and Sunday 6th October, 12 noon – 5pm. Entry free.

I hope you can make it along.
