June sees the welcome return of Suffolk Open Studios. Every weekend, artists will be opening their studios to allow visitors a unique opportunity to watch them at work and quiz them about their creative process. This year’s programme runs over all five weekends, commencing Saturday 1st, with over 100 artists and eight galleries. Studios are open 11am-5pm and entry is free.
Participating artists come from every corner of the art world and will be showing work across a wide choice of mediums. This year sees a number of changes in response to feedback: simplified maps make it easier find members’ studios, while a new “Meet the Artist” section highlights the finalists who competed to be the “face” of Suffolk Open Studios on this year’s posters, flyers and directory. Two features which have been retained are the well-liked members’ trails and hubs: full details appear on the website and in the 2019 directory.
Visitors can learn about artists, view their work, check times and plan their route by visiting the website at www.suffolkopenstudios.org. They should also look out for posters, flyers and the pocket-size directories in galleries, libraries and tourist information centres everywhere or download a copy from the website.
