The Florence Trust is delighted to invite you to the opening of the Winter Open on Friday 2nd February 2018 from 6-9pm. The Winter Open takes place at the mid-way point through our twelve artists’ year-long residency at the Trust and is the public’s first chance to explore their studios.

This year’s artists were selected from a competitive field of applicants on the strength and potential of their practice. The Winter Open, which consists of both open studios and an exhibition, is a great opportunity to meet our artists and see how their work is developing and responding to the space and the artistic community.

Donations bar – mulled wine and drinks will be available throughout the opening night.

For more information about the Florence Trust’s Winter Open or to arrange a tour of the exhibition with our Director or Curator, contact Sarah Williams at sarah@florencetrust.org

This event is free and open to all.
