BOOK THE DATE FOR THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY N22 OPEN STUDIOS 2016
Friday 11th November, 6-9pm (Private View)
Saturday 12th -Sunday 13th November 2016, 12noon-6pm (Public Days)
20 years strong and it’s still a pleasure to organise the annual Chocolate Factory N22 Open Studios weekend in November. You never know exactly what you’ll get from the fantastic array of Chocolate Factory Artists, but you can be sure that there’s something to suit all tastes.
The range of Chocolate Factory Artists has certainly not diminished. There are painters galore, naturally, some working in oil, others in acrylics or watercolours, or all three. There are sculptors, ceramists, designer-makers, textile artists, etchers, illustrators, and, of course, those imaginative types who can fit in all the brackets or none. Another particular treat from the two previous Open Studios was the introduction of scheduled musical performances taking place at regular intermissions throughout the event. Something of a departure from the usual visual arts on offer, Liz Chi Yen Liew’s beautiful piano playing, courtesy of Stella Polaris Studios, was nothing short of lovely, and a refreshing moment of calm in what is always a bustling weekend with an extraordinary amount to see, buy, or even just experience.
In what has become another Open Studios tradition, we also present an exhibition of selected works in Karamel for the duration of the event and beyond, giving you the opportunity to admire your favourites while enjoying a coffee or craft beer, or sampling from the restaurant’s world inspired menu.
The Open Studios weekend will be on: Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November 2016 (12 noon-6pm)
Private View: Friday 11th November (6-9pm)
