Bucks Open Studios: 11th — 26th June 2016
Bucks Open Studios, the largest visual arts event in Buckinghamshire, has announced that its 2016 event will be its biggest to date following a record number of entries from artists and makers across the county.
The annual art event, which is also one of the biggest in the country, will include a record-breaking 323 entries made by over 500 artists including glass workers, ceramicists, jewellery makers, photographers, painters and print makers.
The event will take place 11th-26th June 2016 and will see the participants opening their studios to the public for free demos, workshops and exhibitions.
Bucks Open Studios organisers, Bob and Ann Marshall explain: " We are absolutely thrilled to announce that this is going to be our biggest year so far. Entries from artists and groups across the county flooded in and we are delighted to welcome both our new creative talent as well as artists and makers who have been doing the event for many years."
"We also have a great spread of talent across all disciplines and geographical locations and have actually doubled the number of participants in the Milton Keynes area which is all fantastic news for our visitors. This is a great endorsement of the popularity and professionalism of the event and we hope to top the 48,000 visits from members of the public at our 2015 event. It's never too early to start planning your visits and you can see participating artists and locations on our website."
You can also look out for the directories which are available now for free from libraries, art centres and galleries, and the yellow signs that you will have seen dotted around Haddenham.
