Anglesey Arts Weeks

Anglesey Open Studios Easter 2018

Anglesey Open Studios – Easter 2018

Anglesey is holding its fifteenth  Anglesey Arts Weeks (AAW), Open Studios and Galleries Weeks, Saturday 24th March – Sunday 8th April 2018, when painters, sculptors, photographers, film makers, printmakers, installation artists and craftworkers open their studios to visitors

Often the Anglesey weather is fine and sunny at Easter, so here’s hoping! You can always combine studio visits with trips to the beach, or go for a walk either on your own, or book onto one of our popular free ones. There are plenty of excellent places to stay on the Island so make a break of it if you are from away, or if living locally find out what happens in the studio on your doorstep.

The Open Studios and Galleries Weeks event attracts visitors from all over the UK. It is the biggest art event held on the Island. This year over 80 artists are taking part at 54 locations including 10 participating galleries. You may find anything from cards, prints and original works of art to buy; see anything from works in progress to exhibitions of contemporary art. Venues include studios, chapels, barns, sheds, galleries and artists’ homes. You have the chance to meet and talk with the artist, often over a cup of tea, and gain a unique glimpse of the artistic process. Don’t feel shy about visiting; all the artists are only opening their studios as they are keen to meet you. As mentioned, we are offering five free art and landscape walks. Further details of these are in the Events Section.

The event is spread over the two full weeks of Easter with some artists opening all the time and others for only a few days. To make it easier for you to plan, the studio opening hours are always 11am – 5pm on the days they are open. Also the A5 colour Guide has a folding cover which includes a map that helps you to plan your visits and navigate the Island. It also includes details of our walking tours, details of which can also be found in the Events section.

The Guide will be widely distributed, and a PDF copy, along with additions and corrections can be downloaded from here. In the Guide, alongside each artist entry, is a calendar marked with their opening days and in the back section of the Guide a daily schedule of all studios open on each day which enables you to plan a route to visit those open.
