This year has got off to a great start and I have already booked most dates for The Art Boat tour. Time is flying and I can’t believe there is already less than a week left to visit The Old Parsonage in Didsbury to see the Vernon Mill Group Exhibition “Interwoven”. A wonderful exhibition in a beautiful setting, by a diverse group of talented artists. Well worth squeezing in a visit before it closes.
The Art Boat Tour 2019.
The winter is when I plan the rest of the year, and it’s looking good so far. These are the events that are already scheduled for TheArtBoat. A mixture of Floating Markets, Festivals and exhibitions. I will also be dipping my toe in the unfamiliar world of Art Fairs. But most exciting (for me!) is the open studio that I am planning for the three weekends before I set off on the Art Boat. This will be the first time that I have opened my new studio to the public, and I’m quite nervous as it will be very different to my past experience, taking part in group open studios.
I have added links to some of the events and will insert more as they become available. Please bookmark this post as I will come back and add events as I book them. There are already a couple of Guild of Waterway Artists exhibitions in the pipeline.
