TALENTED artists are being invited to join Worcestershire Open Studios (WOS) to help promote their work.
Those interested will be offered a year-round presence on WOS’s website, with the opportunity to feature a gallery of their work and promote their exhibitions, workshops and events.
WOS is also gearing up for the return of its annual art event over the weekend of August 28-30, 2021.
It will bring together art lovers with local, Worcestershire artists who will have the opportunity to open their studios, galleries and work spaces to the public.
And for the first time ever organisers are offering artists a programme of online events and, later in the year, an outdoor art market.
Organiser Richard Nicholls said: “Our plans remain flexible and realistic in light of Covid-19 challenges.
“We remain dedicated to giving local artists the opportunity to share their work with the public, both online and in person.
“Our new format gives more possibilities to do this and also provides extra benefits, including art supplier discounts and subsidised training.
“We are really hopeful that the open studios weekend will go ahead in August after being cancelled in 2020.
“It will be open to all the artists who’ve signed up for our new year-round format and we’d encourage as many as possible to get involved.”
Local artist Nicola Currie, said: “I am hugely grateful to WOS for providing me with an annual opportunity to showcase and share my work with people from around the county and beyond.
“The weekend has the atmosphere of a festival and enables people from all walks of life to come and explore art and see what is created locally.
“Open Studios remains one of my best opportunities for selling paintings, prints and cards and for keeping in contact with art lovers locally, nationally and internationally.”
