NOST Launch Day, Northampton Open Studion Trails

  • 29 August 2015 11am-4pm *on now

NOST enables members of the public to see some of Northamptonshire’s finest artwork by touring the county visiting studios opened by artists and exhibitions hosted by artists. At the launch event, visitors can enjoy artists’ demos in the Gardens, as well as some free children’s workshops including pottery, mural sticker art and Little Draw, a community drawing project sponsored by Northampton Community Fund, part of Northamptonshire County Council; participating children’s even gets to take home a goody bag! For our adult visitors there is the chance to take part in THE BIG PAINT, a collaborative community art project. With materials being sponsored by ColArt, 100 members of the public can show off their talents by painting a section of what will become a much larger painting, which will be hung for the month of NOST in the Gallery.
