27 April to 5 June – There were three LINKED EXHIBITIONS at Retford, Arnold & Beeston Libraries (A-C on the map) about Open Studios Notts artists, alongside event information – courtesy of Inspire: Culture, Learning and Libraries. FREE Admission.
This was an exciting opportunity to meet, learn and visit local artists! The Open Studios Notts photography exhibition highlighted the work and workplaces of artists and craftspeople taking part in this year’s event.
The exhibition also acted as a signpost to all the other Open Studios events that were taking place during the months of May and June. Information, calendars and maps pointed visitors towards artists, groups and craftspeople who were opening their work places for all to visit. The images gave glimpses behind the scenes at some of Nottinghamshire’s local talent, whether workig in their living rooms, sheds or studios.

In addition there were a series of ‘Meet the Artists’ events at the libraries where artists taking part in Open Studios Notts were available to demonstrate and talk about their working practices.
