Fifty one artists will open their studios or create a pop-up exhibition as part of this free event which combines the opportunity to visit artists’ studios, buy their work, and experience breath-taking scenery around Cumbria along the way. Studios are located on the edge of the North Pennines right across to the west coast of the county, from the remote hills of the Lake District to the streets of Penrith and Cockermouth as well as across the Eden Valley. It’s a chance not only to buy something original and locally made but, also, to see how and where artists make their work and chat with them about their practice. The range of art available includes textiles, sculpture, jewellery, photography, glass, paintings, ceramics, prints, and more, so there’s something for everyone.
The Open Studios and Art Trail Guide is available from the EVAN Gallery
