The final weekend of Plumstravaganza allowed local residents and visitors to see artists’ work in their own homes. This is the very first time Open Studios has taken place in Plumstead, but it has been in the pipeline for a number of years.
The idea is to pick up a leaflet, then visit the houses in turn. Naturally, not all the work will be to everyone’s taste, but that is not the point. It is a social occasion as much as a chance for the artists to showcase their creativity.
Feedback was very positive; from the artists, who were pleased to receive visitors to see their work, and the public, who couldn’t believe Open Studios was taking place in Plumstead. Now that Open Studios has happened, there is every chance that additional artists will consider being part of future similar events.
