Open Studios 2018

My first Open Studios experience was super. There was a lot of preparation work involved getting everything organised, marketed, finished and ready for the event. We had a number of visitors – friends, family and new people to meet. Thank you to everyone who visited particularly those who brought along their children. Hopefully some of them were inspired to consider a creative pursuit as a vocation.

I’m entering Open Studios 2018

Inspired by visiting other local artists during Open Studio 2017 in May this year, I decided to have a go myself. The scheme runs an accreditation process where you have submit 3 examples of your work, a biography and an artist statement. I was nervous they would say no. However I received the good news last Friday and I’m on my way to having my first Open Studio next May. Wish me luck!!! Cheers, Jason
p.s. I’ve attached the 3 pieces of work I submitted.

Developing Ideas

I’ve visited four local artists as part of Open Studios… all very talented. I’m inspired to have an Open Studio myself next year. My work isn’t at the same level of the artists I’ve visited but that’s ok. The most exciting part of visiting other artists is that we have shared ideas and the feedback about Artistic Mortimer was positive. New ideas that I hadn’t thought of were suggested by the artists I visited which were great – ways in which to encourage and promote further creativity in the local community.
