CALL-OUT TO ARTISTS 2
Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios, the countywide celebration of art, is opening up for applications to join the 2018 event. Each year hundreds of artists across the county invite the public into their studios to see where and how they work.
This year around 28,000 people visited 515 artists in 254 venues; additionally 17 Art Trails were created, allowing visitors to enjoy several studios in one day.
Reepham-based artist Emily Longhurst said: “This was my first year participating in Open Studios and I found it a really enjoyable and worthwhile experience.” Berni Marfleet, an artist based in North Norfolk, who has been taking part in Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios for a number of years, said: “There are always delightful surprises with the people you meet, and the reaction and feedback not only boosts confidence but gives one new ideas and avenues to pursue.” Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2018 will take place between May 26 and June 10.
