I am very pleased to be exhibiting in my first Open Studios event this May, based in my beautiful Cotswold village of Amberley, Stroud. I was invited to join in by fantastic artist Alison Vickery as part of the SVA Site Festival , which sees many studios open up in and around Stroud. In Amberley alone, we have 10 unique exhibitors, as part of the Site trail or as part of the SIT Select Trail that runs in tandem.
At 'Morven' (GL5 5AS) Alison's lovely home, Alison has also invited oil painter Galina Gardiner, and driftwood sculptor Steve Mansfield to be part of our 'hub'. Four very different but complimentary artists under one roof; please do take the time to check out their websites if you are interested.
Across the village other artists include printmaker and painter Clare Bassett, oil painter Daisy Murdoch, potter Tom Knowles Jackson, knitted textiles designer/maker Nicki Schmiegelow, jewellery designer/maker Barbara Spence, and ceramicist Jo Lowde. It surely must be the perfect excuse to come and wander round our village, on National Trust common land, taking in the surroundings and stopping off here and there to see original artists. I hope to see you there!
