Friday in the first week of September in the second year of a pandemic feels like a strange place to be. The end of another summer of uncertainty with summer traditions modified or cancelled. One regular event of late summer that is going ahead with appropriate Covid-19 precautions is the Drawn to the Valley Open Studios event. 9 days of art and making locations, open to the public throughout the Tamar Valley.
Locations and opening times can be found in the virtual brochure on our website.
There are 3 more days to visit studios. I’ve spent my free time this week calling in on artists and catching some beautiful art and conversations along the way.
All the artists have been very welcoming but one welcome was very special.
Pippin in Bere Alston gave the most enthusiastic welcome so far.
