The Artmap Open Studios annual event is now in its twelfth year and continues to grow in popularity, with visitor numbers increasing steadily. From a start of twenty artists it has grown to over forty this year. The Red Dot Trail, which appears magically the week before the event, guides visitors to artists’ studios by a network of numbered Red Dots and direction arrows. Art lovers will find a warm Artmap welcome from Glencoe in the north to Kilberry in the south and for the first time this year we have a studio on Tiree!
“ I am a new member of Artmap and have been amazed by the success of my first open studio event. Joining an artists' membership organisation has been the key factor - Artmap provides encouragement, publicity, ideas and inspiration. As someone who has taken up artwork a little later in life I definitely feel Artmap has helped give me the confidence to successfully establish my new career. “
“ Artmap is a fantastic way to publicise my work. People can engage with, and learn about my art in a very relaxed and sociable atmosphere. I enjoy meeting folk from all over Argyll, or even further afield, and often people return the following year.”
