The artist’s studio is thought of as a mythical place where creativity is inspired, closeted from the world. Behind Smoke and Mirrors presents an alternate view, allowing you direct insight into the spaces where art is made and to the processes artists employ. This laboratory project presents the studio as it is in real terms, an active space of ideas and experimentation. After the residency the artists will spill out encompassing the whole gallery presenting an extensive exhibition of their new work. We invite you come in, meet the artists and explore the studios!
Open Studio Residencies 15th June – 10th July
