Visit Open Studios

We’re in the middle of Open Studios season. A chance to visit the work of local artists and time for me to start spreading the word about Artistic Mortimer. Visit Open Studios http://www.open-studios.org.uk/

Johannes von Stumm FRBS, President, Open Studios quotes Johann Wolfgang von Goethe saying

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”

The Beginning

It is March 25th 2017 and the birth of a new idea. The idea has been around in my head for a while but today I’ve been proactive and acted upon it. I’m an amateur artist and I want to support the work of others like me who want to promote their work, meet like minded people, share ideas and help others develop. I don’t want to profit from the idea but I do want to generate funds that can be reinvested or distributed to help others.  I want to promote work, support talents, find sponsors and encourage people to do what they creatively enjoy as a hobby and a vocation.
