Registration for Cyprus Open Studios 2018 is now closed.
According to Wikipedia:
Open studio concept
A studio or workroom which is made accessible to all-comers, where artistic or creative work can be viewed and created collaboratively. An Open Studio is intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression.
And they all did it!
Anthony Micallef, Richard Diebenkorn, Picasso, Norman Rockwell, Monet, Toulouse-Loutrec, and de Kooning
With gratitude to The Lenkerville Art Room
And we do it!
What we are NOT
- We are NOT a shop or a gallery
- We are NOT agents or representatives of particular artists
- We do NOT sell anything
What we ARE:
- We are an organisation assisting creative people get recognition in the public domain
- We provide a platform for this via our website, Facebook page, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and our blog
- Annually in October we assist visual artists in Cyprus physically to connect with the public by opening their studios and work-spaces
- For those participants who do not have, or do not wish to, open a studio, we offer a ‘Members Only’ facility which provides them with a full page website entry
- We also try and assist with alternative space
- Members remain visible through our website during the current year and thereafter in our archives
- For this annual event we provide a printed catalogue and supporting promotional material
- This catalogue is also published on the global platform of issuu.com
- This is valuable for sponsors and advertisers
- We organise, through our international division, exhibitions abroad for members of Cyprus Open Studios under the banner of Open Galleries Abroad (OGA)
