Worcestershire Open Studios is a new venture, organised by a group of local artists who would like to see an annual open studios event established in Worcester and the surrounding areas.
The trustees and event organisers are:
Sally Morgan is a Worcester-based artist. She was involved in setting up A Picture for Health in 2012. This successful charity holds regular art exhibitions in a number of Worcester’s health centres. Sally has considerable experience of developing, managing and evaluating projects both as a freelance consultant working with the business and charitable sectors and also her work in the public sector.
Cherrie Mansfield is also a Worcester-based artist. She has substantial experience of managing projects and delivering successful community initiatives in both the public and voluntary sectors. Cherrie has participated in two previous open studio events based around the Vale of Evesham.
Gemma Neath currently runs Little Makers, delivering creative workshops in Worcester for both children and adults. This is a development of her textile business for which she has experience of providing an exhibition for Number 8 in Pershore and selling at art markets in Worcester, Malvern and Hereford.
Richard Nicholls runs a graphic design company in Worcester providing web and print design for small and medium sized businesses across the UK. He is responsible for producing the website and publicity materials for the Worcestershire Open Studios events. With a degree in Creative Digital Media, Richard has an interest in the crossover of digital and traditional processes, particularly in the area of photography.
