Open Studios 2010

Up here in Keyford at The Limes, Venue 13, we had a great preview on Friday evening with lots of lovely people and several sales as well.  With 5 artists here we really enjoyed seeing our friends and making and welcoming some excellent new ones - yes even those who went at 1.30am!!! They did help clear up. It was a super evening, helped by the sultry evening and we received lots of positive feedback so very many thanks to everyone who made it. So far we have had a good weekend, a bit quiet on Saturday but picking up on Sunday so I do hope lots more will come and see us next weekend 17th and 18th July. A few items were left behind on Friday night so if you are missing anything please do contact me - Caroline - I have them safely tucked away but don't know who they belong to. Thank you again to everyone who turned up.  I would love to know how everyone else has fared and get some feedback from the visitors.

Washing Up Comment

I certainly feel it was a very successful Open Studios, we had a lot of visitors, lots of very complimentary comments on both our venue, other venues and the standard of the Trail as a whole.  Things like, "fascinating", "what a lot of variety to be seen", "high standard of work", etc., etc.  Which after all the hard work is good to hear. I would be interested to hear other peoples reactions.  I believe those in the locations a bit further out didn't do so well with visitor numbers. It may seem early but it could be worthwhile starting to tentatively look for more central venues now for next year.  Certainly the feedback I got was that there is so much going on people just couldn't get to everything much as they wanted to. Please do let me have your feedback, good and bad and we can use it to improve the event further.  If anyone thinks they could offer up locations to other artists then let me know when you can and I'll keep a list.  Either post it here, call me (01373 452136) or email me directly scarlettart@btinternet.com. Sorry to be so organised, it's the ex-conference organiser in me!
