Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Bucks Open Stu­dios, the largest vis­ual arts event in Buck­ing­hamshire and one of the big­gest in the coun­try, is on the hunt for lo­cal artists and makers to take part in its 2016 event.

The an­nual artis­tic ex­trav­a­ganza takes place from June 11 to 26 and will see artists and makers in­clud­ing pain­ters, ce­ram­i­cists, glass work­ers, jew­ellery makers, pho­tog­ra­phers and print makers once again open­ing up their stu­dios to the pub­lic for an im­pres­sive line-up of free demon­stra­tions, hands-on work­shops and ex­hi­bi­tions.

Bucks Open Stu­dios or­gan­is­ers, Bob and Ann Mar­shall said: “We would love to see some new cre­ative tal­ent tak­ing part in next year’s Bucks Open Stu­dios. It is a pop­u­lar and im­por­tant an­nual event for the vis­ual arts and we are de­lighted to be once again offering an insight in to the wealth of cre­ativ­ity that is still so preva­lent in our county.

“So, if you’re a lo­cal ama­teur or pro­fes­sional artist or maker then why not be part of this well es­tab­lished and vi­brant event? We had over 48,000 vis­its by the pub­lic last year so it’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to show­case your skills and work to the gen­eral pub­lic as well as net­work with 600 like-minded cre­ative peo­ple in the area.”

Buck­ing­hamshire was one of the first ever coun­ties to hold an Open Stu­dios event.
