Event: Open Studio Weekend
Dates: Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th March 2012
Where: Image Art Studio, Jubilee House, Queen Street, Gillingham, Dorset, SP8 4DZ
Details: With Cloth Road Art Weeks, Dorset Art Weeks, & Somerset Art Works this year, we’ve decided to hold an informal Open Studio information event for Artists and Photographers at Image Art in Gillingham, North Dorset, in March.
The thinking behind the event is that now more than ever artists need to increase returns from their work, and that Fine Art prints are a very
effective way of stretching the revenue potential of an original.
We’re inviting artists and photographers to come along and find out more about what we do and how it can benefit them. Steve will be there to discuss the various kinds of media and presentation formats that are available for both artwork and photographs, and he’ll be displaying examples of the way using different media can affect the look of finished prints, plus showing different presentation formats (including some alternative methods that he specialises in – and uses to good effect on his own photographic work). The idea is to increase awareness of just what can be done, and how it can help sell work.
The opening times and dates are 10 am to 5 pm on both Saturday 17 March and Sunday 18 March. It’s an informal, no obligation event and all are welcome. If you would like any further information, please call Steve on 01747 82 66 33 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look forward to seeing you sometime over the weekend.

Made in the Middle is an open exhibition originated by Craftspace and selected by an expert panel. Previously showing contemporary craft from the
West Midlands, this year the exhibition has been expanded to include the East Midlands and celebrate creative practice across the whole region.
This exhibition brings together 35 makers whose diverse practice reflects the wealth of high quality work produced across the region and the talent nurtured in the Midlands. In a changing economic climate this Made in the Middle considers ‘Pathways to Craft’ through selected case studies to draw out the various routes to careers in making. The exhibition aims to demonstrate alternative ways to approach making, not only through the exhibitors’ experiences but also through the action research project Apprentices in the Making.
Made in the Middle also reflects on developments in craft. In recent years the use of digital processes and technologies has grown significantly. A focus on digital work highlights the growing interest in these processes and how makers are pushing technology to create innovative work.

A wide range of art and sculptures will be on show by women, but for everyone’s tastes.
IWD provides a common day for globally recognising and applauding women’s achievements as well as for observing and highlighting gender inequalities
and issues. If every International Women’s Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.
