Open Studio Event, 11th December 2010

All my focus this week is set on the official launch of the new studio complex in Kirkcudbright.

WASPS studios (Workshop and Artists' Studio Provision Scotland) is an organisation which provides space for artists in many sites across Scotland, and this weekend, will be the first Open Studio Event for the new venture, at Cannonwalls and Claverhouse Studios, 117 High Street, Kirkcudbright DG6 4JG.

Together with 12 other artists in the adjoining buildings, I will be welcoming visitors to my studio on Saturday, 11th December from 10am to 4pm. There will be some new work on show, and of course the chance to buy on the day.

We will be providing mince pies and mulled wine too - come early while stocks last!

On the same day, Kirkcudbright itself will be hosting a Christmas Festival, so there will be lots to see and do for all the family throughout the town.

Do come along and see the new space.

The video this month (see below), shows some of the new work I will be exhibiting.

Off the Wall

Just a wee reminder that the "Off the Wall" exhibition is continuing at the Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries until December 24th
