PAOS 2017 visitor, Chloe Walker-Harrison, picks up £100 prize

Local art-lover, Chloe Walker-Harrison, was rewarded with a £100 prize for supporting local artists during Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios (PAOS) 2017.

Chloe a keen supporter of Open Studios for a number of years, took the opportunity to introduce her young baby daughter to local artisans during her visits this year.  Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios celebrated its 17th year during which local artisans open their homes, studios and garden sheds for people to enjoy an exhibition of their work and watch them practice their skills.

2017 has been a very successful year for PAOS, with over 90 local artisans showcasing their work across 41 different locations across the PE postcode area. Anyone who visited 8 or more locations had the opportunity to enter a draw and win £100 worth of vouchers to spend with a PAOS member of their choice.

Jackie Hall, chair of PAOS, said “Hundreds of people from across the city and beyond took the opportunity to visit local artists and members felt this was one of the most successful years to date.  We had over 20 new members together with may members who have exhibited for a number of years.  Visitor numbers were up and lots of people took the opportunity to buy unique pieces of work to support local artists. ”

PAOS 2018 dates have already been set for members of the public to put in their diaries.  23, 24, 3o June and 1, 7 and  8 July.
