Anglesey Open Studios Event
3 Apr 17
We’re very excited to be one of the proud sponsors of Anglesey’s Arts Week’s 14th Anglesey Open Studios event!
It is a fantastic celebration of the vibrant arts community found all across the island and is the biggest art event held on the Island, with over 80 artists taking part at 54 locations. Anglesey-based painters, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, printmakers, installation artists, craftworkers and more will open their studios to visitors over a two week period. The event starts this Saturday on 8th April and runs through until April 23rd.
This year’s eye-catching guide features profiles of the all the artists taking part, along with studio opening times, address details as well as a handy fold out map to help you plan your route around the Island. It also lists details of free guided walks that will be taking place at various locations across the Island as part of the event.
The Guide was launched at artist Allan Redfern’s studio in Brynsiencyn with Bun Matthews. Menai Holiday Cottages is this year’s sponsor of the Guide as well as being one of the sponsors of the two-week event.
Bun said: “We are delighted to support the Open Studios fortnight and to promote the huge range of artistic talent on Anglesey, which we know is a significant draw for visitors to our Island. In addition to April’s Open Studios fortnight, Menai Holiday Cottages will be working with the Anglesey Arts Forum throughout 2017 to promote the work of our artists the whole year round.”
