Haworth Art Gallery are pleased to share that the Artists’ at the Artists’ Studios are hosting a fantastic, free to attend Christmas event this year.
Locals can join the artists 4pm – 8pm on Wednesday 6th December for a festive open evening that will include shopping, Christmas refreshments, and much more – it is a perfect chance to support small, local business and grab a unique gift this season.
Residents will have the opportunity to talk with the artists based at the studios themselves, learning more about their individual crafts and practices whilst viewing the wide variety of art, crafts and unique gifts on display.
The artists cover mediums from printwork to watercolour to acrylic painting and much more, so there is certainly something for everyone.
Gillian Berry, Arts and Heritage Manager at Haworth Art Gallery, said:
“There is so much creativity and talent being housed in the walls of the Studios at Haworth Art Gallery, and it is a real pleasure to see all their hard work being displayed for the public. This event is the perfect chance for you to learn more about the artists behind the work and the community that capture so much of the beauty in Hyndburn through their various mediums.
“Even more so, this is a great event to consider shopping local when thinking about gift-giving this season. A purchase with a small seller like the artists at the Studios means so much more than just buying something from a big brand and gives you as the buyer the chance to buy something with a personal, loving touch in every product.”
Not only will there be the chance to chat with artists about the work they do and see some of their available goods for yourself, but the studios will also be open for guests to browse the wonderful heritage of the former Stables and Motor House buildings.
Features to look out for include the original motor pit, the above-ground petrol store and the stalls for horses (where there are original wall tiles, as well as ironwork separating the floor and the herringbone brick floor).
Open studios take place on the first Sunday of every month so there is plenty of opportunity to visit and meet with the artists, even for those who cannot attend the event. Haworth Art Gallery is FREE to visit all year round and is open Wednesday to Sunday, noon – 4pm.
