Open Studios this weekend


The rearranged Open Studios Cornwall event gets underway on Saturday.

In total, more than 200 artists, designers and makers will be throwing their doors open, with others set to exhibit virtually.

Open Studios Cornwall had originally been due to take place in May but had to be put on hold due to the pandemic.

Between Saturday August 29 and Sunday September 6, the artists will share their studio spaces, their stories and “omnipresent originality” in a safe and socially-distanced celebration of artistic practice.

Open Studios project coordinator, Karen Raymond, said: “Whether you are drawn to saturated colour or atmospheric monochromes, modern processes or ancient traditions, the seen or the unseen, Open Studios Cornwall opens our eyes to other worlds, both physically and mentally.

“Supporting and investing in Cornwall’s creative community not only provides artists, designers and makers with a vital lifeline but also enables us to focus on the positive power of creativity in these challenging times.”
