BUCKS OPEN STUDIOS TO CELEBRATE 30TH YEAR

Bucks Open Studios, the largest visual arts event in Buckinghamshire and one of the biggest in the country, has announced that 2015 will be its 30th year of free events across the county. 

Taking place from 6th-21st June 2015, Bucks Open Studios will showcase an array of over 500 local artists and makers who will open up their studios to the public for a dazzling line-up of free demonstrations, hands-on workshops and exhibitions.  Talent on show includes painters, ceramicists, glass workers, basket weavers, metal workers, wood turners, jewellery makers, book makers, photographers, print makers and silk makers and organisers are hoping to top the 25,000 visits made by the public during the 2014 event.

Bob and Ann Marshall, the Joint Chairs of Bucks Open Studios said “We are delighted to announce that 2015 will be our 30th year.  Buckinghamshire was one of the first ever counties in the UK to hold an Open Studios in 1986 with around 43 exhibiting venues. The event has grown in popularity year on year with both the public and participating artists and we now have over 200 venues spanning the length and breadth of Buckinghamshire.  Few would have thought in 1986 that Bucks Open Studios would grow to be such a popular and important event for the visual arts and we are delighted that we are still able to offer the public a great way to experience the wealth of creativity that is very much alive and kicking in our towns and villages.”

Bob and Ann continued, “We are all extremely grateful for the public’s continued support over the years and we really hope that people will join us in celebrating our 30th year by visiting the many venues; just look out for the popular yellow road signs that start springing up in May or visit our website www.bucksopenstudios.org.uk to search for artists and venues.”

“It really doesn’t matter if you’re an art enthusiast or if you just fancy an interesting day out, you can see some fantastic and free demonstrations by talented local craftspeople and maybe even have a go at creating your very own masterpiece.”
