In order to give visitors to the Open Studio weekend the opportunity to buy original works of art for a tiny price (£25) we have postcard-sized pieces of art specially conceived and made for this event on sale. These are provided by the artists whose studios are open to visitors, as well as some more internationally famous names, and even some well-known people who you may not think of as artists at all!
Each postcard is signed on the back, so that buyers can only discover the artist’s identity when the purchase has been delivered. Postcards from Art West are on display until the end of the weekend when the purchased cards are sent to their new owners. The proceeeds go towards funding next year's Open Studios event.
Here's a sampling of some of the postcards that were created at the last event:
These are some of the postcards made by children at one of the local schools where we held a workshop:
