(NOST) Northamptonshire Open Studios & The Rooftop Gallery Studio Users Exhibition
Studio users at Rooftop Gallery & Workshops will be taking part in this year's Northamptonshire Open Studios. To coincide with NOST our studio users will be exhibiting their work within our three art gallery spaces. Warren Shaw, from studio 4, has taken the lead on this project.
Northants Open Studio Trails (NOST) is the largest visual arts event in and around the county. During the month of September, artists invite you into their studios to witness at first hand the inspiration and motivation, which drives them to create. Step inside a pottery studio, discuss carving with a stonemason or watch demonstrations of painting, printmaking and traditional crafts.
The brochure will show you the huge range of art activities featured this year and help you to choose where to visit. Many artists will also present their work as groups in galleries, shops, pubs and a host of interesting alternative venues.
Artists have been grouped together by region and are marked on easy to follow maps, which will help guide you around the county, so you don’t miss a thing!
