Artists living and working in Wessex Estate will open their doors for a special Christmas Edition of the ArtWalk@Wessex on Saturday 2 December and Sunday 3 December 2017.
Set against the beautiful leafy backdrop of Portsdown Road are the historical black and white houses and walk up apartments that contain the homes and studios of local and international artists. A leisurely stroll around the estate will take you to 11 studios where you will be able to talk to the artists, find out what inspires them and discover more about their creative process.
At this Christmas Edition of the ArtWalk@Wessex, artists hailing from nine different countries will be exhibiting their artworks including drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics and mixed media – a perfect opportunity to buy artwork directly from the artists just in time for Christmas!
All the studios are within walking distance of each other, and with cafes and restaurants in the vicinity, it’s a perfect way to spend a few hours. Visitors to previous art walks have enjoyed interacting with the artists, finding out what inspires them, and learning about art techniques and processes in a relaxing informal setting.
For more information about the work of the 11 participating artists, please look at their respective websites on the website, www.artwalkwessex.com
Distinctive signs will be outside each studio making them easy to locate. ArtWalk@Wessex is free and self guided. Maps will be available at all studios.
Bring water, sunscreen, a hat and an umbrella!
