Artist Hubs

In addition to individual artist's Open Studios, Hubs involve Suffolk Open Studios members getting together at one location to show visitors artwork in progress and completed pieces of their work. Sometimes the group of artists will share common interests and exhibiting their work together enriches the visitor’s experience. Sometimes the artist's own studios are in remote locations and it reduces visitor travel time if they collaborate in this way. Visitors to a hub will enjoy great variety and talent all in one place. 

In June 2017 there will be the following Hub studios:

Alde Valley Hub, Cransford, Woodbridge

ART 5 Hub, Felixstowe

Creative Stitch, Ipswich
