Artists’ Studios

A walk across the courtyard leads to artists’ studios, walls, red-bricked, quite vintage and inviting.

The ground floor houses several studios and a spiral staircase leads to more studios upstairs where more resident artists also find their way into the studios through the outreach programme run by the Gallery, they mix and mingle. The programme favours exposure for the young and talented.

Patrons and art lovers have a rare opportunity of watching the artists bring out the inner child on the blank canvas. The artist can explain how each art piece came about. Interestingly each studio is filled with individual work, style and technique. One would most probably be smiling with satisfaction from studio to studio, it’s truly memorable.

By the way, there is a possibility of purchasing a piece from the artists at work. How wonderful!
