The Florence Trust is pleased to invite you to its 2014 Winter Open. This is the first public opportunity to see the work of the Trust’s resident artists, who will all be at the midway point of their yearlong studio residency. Our current eleven artists were selected from a competitive field of applicants because of the strength and potential of their work, and this event, which combines both an open studios with an exhibition, is a great chance to explore their progress. During the private view we will run a bar and warm drinks will be available for the duration of the event.
About the Florence Trust:
The Florence Trust offers twelve-month studio residencies commencing in August each year for up to a dozen carefully selected artists. During the residency, each artist gets 24-hour access to a studio within the Trust’s Grade-1 listed neo-gothic church; included in the Trust’s two annual exhibitions; and participates in a mentoring programme tailored to the requirements and objectives of each resident. In the past, artists have joined the Trust at a pivotal stage in their careers and used the opportunity as a springboard to establish themselves in the London art scene and beyond. Our alumni have gone on to exhibit in museums and galleries around the world and their work has become part of major international public and private collections.
The Florence Trust is run by a Director Paul Bayley, Studio Manager Neil Jefferies, and a group of committed Trustees. It is a registered educational charity that aims to deliver a bespoke programme dedicated to the creative and professional development of each of its resident artists.
