The Border Visual Arts Festival 2015 is flinging open the world of contemporary art in the coming weeks as it once again gives a stunning demonstration of the breadth, talent and number of artists based in the area.
This weekend sees the start of the festival, an exhibition at the Willow Gallery – with a preview evening on Friday 29th May. The exhibition will be open throughout the month of June.
Between the 10th of June and the 27th June, The Willow Gallery and participating Open Studio artists will also be playing host to a phenomenal amount of workshops, demonstrations and drop ins – from working with textiles –felting, machine embroidery art and collage, wax modelling, wood carving and CAD modelling and 3d sculpture. Places are bound to be limited, but do contact the Willow Gallery for more details.
Sat 13 & Sun 14th June and Sat 20th & Sun 2st June are Open Studio weekends with 28 artists displaying works in 15 studios in and around Oswestry.
Local businesses around the town will host window displays of sculpture, paintings and textile arts.
This is a wonderful opportunity to not only see artists at work, but take part in their workshops, talk to them about their life and work and get to buy unique, wonderful contemporary artwork.
