Open Studios 29th August to 6th September 2015Open Studios Event celebrates local art An essential part of the South West creative calendar will be held from 29th August to 6th September 2015 across the Tamar Valley region. Drawn to the Valley, a group of over 150 local artists ranging from painters and printmakers to ceramicists, sculptors, calligraphers, jewellers and textile artists, was formed over 10 years ago partly in order to promote the Tamar Valley Area and to contribute to the regeneration of the local economy through exhibitions and Open Studios. They are united by their passion for this beautiful, but sometimes forgotten, part of Devon and Cornwall and put on the Open Studios event annually, to attract visitors to appreciate art in a variety of different media that reflect developments in both traditional and contemporary art. Open Studios provides a chance to experience some of the best established and emerging artists and the opportunity to own an original piece of artwork. Locations are as per the brochure listings available from July. Brochures available from local Tourist Information Centres, Libraries, Hotels, Art Centres and places of interest. Also available as a pdf on our website.
