Karen is 'opening up' as part of 'Open Up' - open studios weekend Saturday 5, Bank Holiday Monday 7 & Saturday 12


Open:  Saturday 5, Bank Holiday Monday 7 & Saturday 12
Opening times: 11am - 5pm
Venue: Cupola Framing department, 174 Middlewood Road.

I am delighted to be taking part in the 20th anniversary of Open Up - Sheffield's highly successful and eagerly awaited Open Studios event. I, sadly, cannot open my studio as I do not have one. I paint late at night on my kitchen table.  Therefore, I am bringing my 'studio' as much as it is,  to the framing department of the gallery.  I will bring drawings and sketches, work in progress, canvases, works on paper, card and board and some of my painting paraphenalia!  I have promised that I will not make a mess.  I am happy to talk through my work and my processes.  The gallery will be closed on Bank holiday Monday but I will be on hand in the framing department to display and to talk about my work - not to take any framing orders.

I will have original work availabe for sale as well as some limited edition prints of some of my images.  I am also happy to work to commission. 

I look forward to 'opening up! 
We have Open Up brochures available too.
See you soon,
Karen  x
