Artists in their creative space

Welcome to our world! From the field nearby, to the garden, from the purpose built studio, to the kitchen table just to name a few examples keeping the creativity alive. In Somerset, there are a very small number of professional studio spaces and public galleries for artists and yet, the artistic community is thriving. Open Studios gives the public an insight into how the artists work and are inspired. To celebrate this, 11 artists were invited to work with our guide designer Chantelle Henocq, graduate photographer Sebastian King and Somerset based writer David Davis, to produce a collection of images that are incorporated in the guide and other publicity materials. Participating artists are Amanda Khan-Davis, David Brayne, Emma Scott, George Foweraker, Jane Brayne, Jane Mackey, John Candler, Melanie Moulding, Pauline Rooke, Simon Ledson and Val George. Larger scales of the images will be exhibited at The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre.
