EVESHAM artists are among those taking part in the county’s largest free annual art event.

11 artists and creators based across Evesham and Pershore will be taking part in this year’s Worcestershire Open Studios event by welcoming visitors into their studios, giving them behind the scenes access into their creative spaces and processes.

This years event has more studios to visit than ever before with 128 artists showcasing their paintings, sculptures, prints, jewellery, ceramics, photographs, textiles and woodwork across 97 studios from August 19 to August 28.

Evesham and Pershore creatives featuring include painter Bethany Jefferson-Loveday, water colour painter Jilly Oxlade-Arnott, textile artist Michelle Flint, multi media artist Paulette Moore and textile and print maker Louise Hancox.

Bethany Jefferson-Loveday said: “I paint from my own photographs using acrylics. We are surrounded by beautiful places and it is great to be able to bring them to life on canvas.

“My portfolio is still growing, but I hope you enjoy what I have produced to date.

“At the open studios 2023, I will be exhibiting my latest collection of work focusing on The Cotswolds and Worcestershire Gardens and I plan to paint whilst accepting visitors, so will be happy to demonstrate my techniques.”

All of the artists are excited to open their doors, to meet and chat with visitors about their art and how it’s made.

Richard Nicholls of Worcestershire Open Studios described the event as an ‘excellent opportunity’ to see the talent on their doorstep.

All studios are free to visit. Guides for the event can be found local libraries, information centres and businesses, or can be downloaded from the Worcestershire Open Studios website.
