Dorset Art Weeks is one of the largest open studio events in the country bringing artists and visitors together in ways that are totally different from entering a public gallery. it’s as much about engagement between people as about people and art. the artists are happy to meet you and keen to talk to you about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work. this year I am one of those artists.
series worked on over the last year will be on show for the first time including ‘abandoned farms’ finished paintings and drawings together with sketchbooks and the ‘floral’ series, ink and watercolour drawings done from life in one sitting. monoprint works, drawings, prints and cards will also be on display.
I look forward to meeting visitors and hope the weather stays fine and dry but even if it pours with rain, like all the artists, makers and designers taking part, will still be happy to see you!
