Seas – Open Studios/Art Trail – 2016 call to artists

SEAS Open Studios/Art Trail is being run almost concurrently with the Deal Festival of Music and Arts, during which artists are invited to welcome the public to view their work over three weekends starting on Saturday 25th June.

Just for your information, the third weekend 9&10 July is optional final weekend as we discussed and realise that both Wimbledon and Royal Marines bandstand event will be running also, which may reduce your visitors.

This year we are again incorporating additional events to our Open Studios (see section D and F) so please fill in appropriately.

We will again be hiring the Astor for the first two weekends for those artists who, for a variety of reasons, can’t open their studio… 25&26 June and 2&3 July

The artists who organise Open Studios operate in an unpaid and voluntary capacity. The smooth running of the event therefore relies on all the artists taking part in helping us.

I would urge you to decide if you would like to be involved, it can be at your own studios, it can be at the Astor theatre or it could be that members collaborate and share space at their residence/ studio. The different variations allow for visitors and appreciators of the local art scene a brief glimpse into the life of you the artist, and an opportunity to purchase directly from you.

The application form outlines the cost implications and I would prompt you to read carefully and then complete the form and send it back with the fee to myself (Mrs. Kate Baker) before the deadline of the 29/2/16. It is also imperative to renew membership with SEAS (through Jim Foreman) before the 29/2/16.
