Open Studios Notts 2021

by | 1 May 2021 | Art, Retford, Sherwood, Worksop

Open Studios Notts will be celebrating their 10th anniversary this year with a virtual arts event profiling many of our local artists and some a mixture of online and physical open studio events (restrictions permitting) during May and June.
In addition, Inspire: Culture Learning and Libraries will curate ‘Bringing Artists Into View’ exhibitions at Arnold, Mansfield and Retford Libraries from Saturday 24th April to Sunday 6th June. Inspire (and previously the Arts Service) have been supporting OSNotts since their beginnings in 2011, by commissioning and curating photography exhibitions of artists and makers, shown in their library galleries and on the Inspire website.

The Creative Birthday Cake Competition
As we all missed our gatherings and cake eating opportunities last year, the Open Studios Notts team will be creating an opportunity for us all make our own special cakes to share with everyone on social media! Artists and the public will be invited to create a birthday cake in any medium (drawn, sculpted, baked, crafted, interpretative dance, music composition – anything goes), then photograph or record (video or audio) the creation and post on social media using a specific hashtag for all to enjoy. There will be opportunities for voting and prizes, so get your creative cake making hats on now!
