My small hallway so far
I'm taking part in a new venture called OPEN STUDIOS AYRSHIRE on 22, 23 and 24 March.
This is our first go although Open Studios is now a very successful part of the UK art scene.
For this first time we've 36 artist working in pottery, prints and painting and a brochure with a map is being popped into libraries, shops and anywhere else willing to take a bundle. This photo shows my small hallway so far, although I think I'd best get the black frame changed to a cream one. Also I need to get greeting cards, postcards and business cards printed so searching for reliable printing companies.
The idea is that visitors come to your studio and browse and maybe buy some art, though I have to say I have a very small house. and the trouble is we've no idea how well the event will be attended.
I thought if I served coffees, teas and maybe had some wine at the ready, as well as my friends wonderful home made scones, it might encourage a bit of rash spending!
And if very few come, well, my scone maker and I can always drink the wine ourselves.
