Norfolk is being turned into a giant gallery of art as the 24th annual Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios event gets under way,
The event - which sees artists across the county open their studios to the public - starts today and runs until June 10.
NNOS is one of the largest open studios schemes in the country and this year more than 420 artists are taking part across 241 Norfolk venues.
Sixteen schools are joining in the project and there are also 15 art trails for people to follow,
Rose de Lara, administrator of Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios, said: “Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios has been celebrating the diversity and talent of the county’s visual artists for more than twenty years.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to see and meet artists working in a range of disciplines from a variety of inspirational spaces - from traditional studios to churches, garages, barns, garden rooms and old factories.
“This year there are specialist artists and crafters in all kinds of painting, printmaking, ceramics, textiles, sculpture and much more. We encourage everyone to get out there and explore the county, get inspired, meet the artists and buy work directly from where it’s made!
“We’d like to thank all of the artists for making this great event happen, and all the funders who help support the Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios scheme.”
Studios are free to visit and all details, including studio opening days, directions, art trails and additional events and demonstrations, can be found in the Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios brochure which can be picked up from participating artist’s studios, tourist information centres, ibraries, cafes and various art venues across the county
