ref: 00v invite you to visit them in their studios on Sat/Sun Jun 2/3 and Jun 9/10 2007 EAST NEUK OPEN STUDIOS Artists in the East Neuk of Fife - return to Galleries PR Index



2-3 June and 9-10 June 2007

(11 am 6pm)
 
For the fifth summer, professional artists in the East Neuk of Fife invite members of the public to visit them in their work-places.
 
The East Neuk is a spectacular stretch of Scottish coast-line, referred to by King James VI when he described Fife as "a beggar's mantle with a fringe of gold".   It includes picturesque fishing villages, such as Anstruther, Cellardyke, Crail, Pittenweem and St Monans and is only a few miles from St Andrews, with its glorious golden sands, world-famous golf courses and luxury hotels. Edinburgh is an hours drive away and Dundee with its airport connection to London City is only 30 minutes from the East Neuk.
 
These twice-yearly events, in midsummer and at Christmas time, have become important dates in the Scottish art calendar.   This summer, because the events have become so popular, we are opening for two weekends in succession, when thirty artists will be delighted to see visitors.

The event provides an opportunity for art lovers to visit and speak to the artists in person,  most of whom have been widely exhibited in major galleries, to discover what inspires them and how they create, and for help and advice in the artists' own sphere of art.  Work includes paintings, drawings, ceramics, prints, art-weaving and jewellery-making, glass art, and illustration.  Some of it will be for sale.

 
Studio entry is of course, free.
 
Details of the artists and illustrations of their work is on our web-site, www.eastneukopenstudios.org
