Florence Trust Open Studio 21 – 23rd Jan

Posted in Florence Trust by Andy Wicks on 18 January, 2011

A busy week for Florence Trust artists past and present, but this is the big one for us current resident artists. The annual open studio, the halfway point of the residency and an opportunity to throw the big old church doors open to the public to come and see what this years crop have been up to.

I’ll be there across the weekend to discuss my work with anyone that wants to chat, details below..

I’ve recently had my new works photographed and have uploaded them to my website as an example of what i’ve been up to over the last few months. It was great to work with a photographer with all the equipment and a proper studio and the results are far superior to anything I’ve ever been able to do myself. For your chance to see them in the flesh make sure you come along to the Florence Trust Open Studio 21 – 23rd January.
