Artist Open Studios Day

Lots of visitors for our first Open Studios event since November 2019. It was wonderful to share conversations stimulated by the art and find out about visitors’ art making experiences. It was also very useful to get feedback, and to be able to sell our work. An ambient soundscape by John Rea, based on sounds recorded in the studios during lockdown, enhanced the space.

I feel incredibly fortunate to be part of an artist community. It can be very lonely and isolating living in capitalism, which is why I believe so many people are struggling with their mental health, and this has been exacerbated by lockdown. (This topic is explored in books such as J. Davies’ ‘Sedated: How Modern Capitalism Created our Mental Health Crisis.’ ) Having a communal space to go to to create work has been invaluable and it was a pleasure to welcome visitors into our spaces.
