East Neuk Artists to Show Their Work Again
After a year of virtual exhibitions, the East Neuk’s Open Studios’ artists are to open their doors again on the 26th and 27th of June, with some ENOS members exhibiting in their own studios, as well as over forty ENOS artists planning to use the Bowhouse event space near to St Monans – a lovely, spacious venue, with food and drink available, and established safe practice rules for Covid.
To mark the launch of the publicity campaign for the event, artists gathered for a socially distanced group photo at Crail Harbour
“We are a group of artists who live in the East Neuk of Fife, which is a wonderful place with historic fishing villages and beaches,” said local artist Liz Shepherd. “Our traditional cry as people went from venue to venue was to ‘follow the red balloons’. We have changed that a bit. We have ditched the plastic balloons and are replacing them with reusable red wooden balloons, and red bunting. As you can see it is quite eye catching and the balloons won’t shrivel up as they used to!”
Seen with the new bunting is Julia Cowie, of 3 Harbourhead Cellardyke, who is one of the artists who will open their studios.
“The beautiful red bunting was made by Rita Smith. We are all looking forward to meeting the public again at last and if you go to our website you can see examples of everyone’s work and get more details as the Open Studios approach.”
