Autumn Open Studios Art Trail

Sudbury Art Collective

'Meet the Artists'

24th and 25th September 2022

Where do artists get their ideas? How is that print made? These are some of the questions you’ll be able to ask at this autumn’s Sudbury Open Studios, on the weekend of 24th/25thSeptember.

While the event will provide the usual opportunity to see and buy art, this year will be a little different.

This year the emphasis will be on how the work is produced, and you’ll be able to ask the artist or maker lots of questions, see work in progress and perhaps catch the occasional demonstration.

The trail includes painters, illustrators, printmakers, a chair-seat caner, a muralist, a textile artist and a sculptor, so there should be something for everyone. And, of course, they are easy to visit: all the work-spaces are within walking distance of the Market Hill in Sudbury.

You could begin at the Sudbury end of the Market Hill with Peter Day’s outdoor sculptures at No 9 Melford Road, and then visit Peter Greenhill’s studio nearby. Next, downhill to No. 57 Friars Street, where four artists will show different types of printmaking, textile restoration, vibrant abstract painting and chair-seat caning, all under one awning.

Further along, at All Saints Church Hall in Church Street, the C’Art Group will be showing their varied works on paper, plastic and canvas. Across the road to Cross Street, where Lorna Hoey at No 53 is will tell you all about her paintings and drawings of the water meadows. A short walk-up Cross Street will take you to the studio of printmaker Jacqueline Robins, who is happy to explain her intricate processes.

Continue up the hill to the black-and-white building that houses Anne Lowe’s studio. She’ll be showing her colourful paintings alongside the detailed work of painter and illustrator Caryn Noad.

Then, a few steps down picturesque Plough Lane will bring you to the studio of Ilona Johnston, who is showing paintings and lino-cuts.

A short walk will take you back to the Market Hill and there you are – almost a circular tour!

Fancy going a little further? The Mill Tye Gallery at Great Cornard is showing two exhibitions: ‘Autumn Printworks’ and Noel Myles: ‘Voyages into Landscape’, so you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Leaflets and maps can be found at Mill Tye Gallery, Sudbury Information Centre and the Library or you may find one in your letterbox.

Come along and meet the artist!
