What to do in Cardiff this weekend: Cardiff Open Studios, 25/26 October 2014

October officially means Art in Cardiff these days… another instalment in the Cardiff Contemporary story this time, with a weekend of artists opening their studios and welcoming you in. All around the capital! And ALL FREE!

Here’s the blurb from them:

“Cardiff has a vibrant community of artists who choose this city as their creative home. Many of the artists exhibit nationally and internationally, while this weekend is a rare chance to see work in progress, meet artists and discuss ideas in these personal spaces. This map focuses on artist-run and individual spaces for visual and applied artists as part of Cardiff Contemporary. The theme of Cardiff Contemporary 2014 is Reveal/Conceal. This weekend is about revealing places and ideas that are usually concealed. We hope you enjoy the weekend exploring this usually hidden community in the city.

A free yellow map is available to locate the studios, indicate opening times and compliment your journey. There is space to add the names of artists whose work you like, a place to draw should you be inspired and the reverse is a poster for your wall or front window. While it is for the weekend, we hope you keep this map and place on your wall as part of discovering more about the Arts in Cardiff.
