Tawharanui artist Alysn Midgelow-Marsden has issued an open call to all artists and creatives in the Mahurangi area to participate in an open studio event.
The event invites artists to open up their studios, homes or collective spaces to visitors over one or two weekends in May.
The studios would form an art trail, which visitors could follow with a map.
Alysn says this is a well tried and tested format, which has proved successful for many artists.
“We did this in 2018 and visitors were delighted to see our work spaces, talk in more detail about our practice and even bought some pieces,” she says.
Already Alysn has interest from artists involved in painting, printing, ceramics, textiles, mixed-media work and jewellery but is eager for more.
Her own speciality is stitchwork using thin metal sheets as fabric.
“Why not join us this year and make it a stand-out event?” she says.
Artists wishing to participate should contact Alysn on 022 318 6750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
