Bucks Open Studios 2012 takes place from 9 June to 24th June 2012 and is the largest visual arts event in the county and one of the largest in the country.
This year they have more participants, more new entrants and more venues than ever before. For two weeks in June every year artists and makers, in over 190 different venues across Buckinghamshire open their studios, demonstrating their craft and running exhibitions and events for the public to visit.
There will be 70 new artists and makers this year, making 549 in total. Participants include painters, glass workers, wood turners, basket weavers, metal workers, jewellery makers, book makers, print makers, acrylic and silk painters to name just a few of the many skills to be found in Bucks.
There are 14 participants in the Marlow/Little Marlow/Bisham area as listed on the website. The two images shown are from local artists whose studio you can visit.
It’s a great chance to be inspired, go behind the scenes, talk to artists’ first-hand, and see work in progress. Some venues also offer demonstrations or workshops. Others feature group exhibitions, showcasing a wide range of arts and crafts.
