Artists from the Forfar and Kirriemuir areas are getting ready to open their doors to the public for the Angus Open Studios event.

Now in its fourth year, AOS provides a wonderful opportunity to visit artists and craftsmen in their studios throughout Angus, meet the makers, and buy or commission your own unique artwork.

This year it will run from Thursday, May 22 to Monday, May 26.

New for this year is a taster exhibition at Inverquharity Castle, by Kirriemuir, from May 17 to 20 where you can see work displayed, and for sale, from most of the 56 participating artists, all in one place.

This beautiful venue, recently part of a BBC documentary the ‘Keys to the Castle’, will be open to the public for the first time.

AOS is an association of artists, craftsmen, and designer-makers in and around Angus. Their showcase event, ‘Angus Open Studios’, takes place each year during the May bank holiday, when local artists and craftsmen open their studios to the public.

This is designed to put Angus artists and artisans more clearly on the artistic map of Scotland.

The new directories giving details of the 56 artists taking part are available now from libraries and other outlets across Angus.

Further details can be found online at www.angusopenstudios.com
