As part of Doors Open Day Cowal Open Studios offers 43 venues which will be open to the public featuring the work of eminent local artists and makers. Many situated in beautiful and more remote parts of Cowal and others based in the town of Dunoon with easy access to amenities and transport routes, they make a fascinating and rewarding collection of visitor attractions with the opportunity to discuss visual art with live practitioners!
Each venue will host an exhibition of art/craftwork and will be manned by the artist/maker, who will be on hand to offer a ’tour’ of the work Tours can be found at this link http://www.cowalopenstudios.co.uk/map.php
Each venue will be hosted by the artist/maker who will demonstrate examples of their working practice - e.g. a ceramist my show how to throw a pot; a painter may describe their working methods - and each venue will feature an exhibition of the practitioner’s work.
There are 43 venues available throughout Dunoon and South Cowal. A map is available to view with various trails highlighted. at http://www.cowalopenstudios.co.uk/map.php
