Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November 2020 at Eastcott Studios and MAMS Gallery, Eastcott Hill, SN1 3JG.
Swindon Open Studios has, over the years, become a big event on the calendar for local art lovers and autumn would usually be a time of great activity with artists preparing to open their studios to the public. We are all living through strange times with Covid-19 and it was clearly not going to be possible for artists to welcome the public into their own homes.
However, with the offer of Eastcott Studios as an exhibition space it has been feasible to put on a socially distanced Christmas art market; with a gallery for paintings at the front of the building through to a covered open air courtyard for table top stalls and ceramic studios.
A one way system through the front of the gallery and into the covered courtyard existing at the rear of the building with anti-bac stations along the way. Visitors are requested to wear masks according to current regulations.
Some of our most popular artists will be exhibiting and stalls will include glass mosaics, ceramics, jewellery, cards, Christmas decorations, prints and paintings. This will be an ideal opportunity to support local artists and find that special Christmas gift, be it a beautiful and individual piece of artwork or the purchase of a creative course or taster session.
MAMS Gallery Cafe will also be open for coffee and cake.
We look forward to seeing you there.
