This weekend WASPS
(that's Workshop and Artists' Studio Provision Scotland) are opening up their studios to the public. Nine of their seventeen studio complexes will be open this Saturday and Sunday. The open weekend is a great opportunity to go and see the work of some local artists in their own studios.
A wide array of disciplines will be on display including ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital media, photography, jewellery and installation. You can get full details on the WASPS website. There's also a photo collection on Flickr if you want to have a look at the kind of work that will be on display.
Last years' digital art fest NEoN
was such a success that they decided to do it all again this year. The Dundee festival is aiming to be bigger and better than the 2009 inaugural event.
The speakers for this years NEoN have been announced. The 2 day conference starts in around 6 weeks and should be a must for anyone interested in digital art, particularly character design - speakers include the likes of Pictoplasma and TADO. I'm also hoping to see Ian Anderson of the Designers Republic making an appearance, unforescene events forced him to pull out NEoN '09.
As the theme is 'character' this year, there's a character design competition to enter which could bag you £100, NEoN tickets as well as the chance to get your design printed on a T-shirt.
Early bird tickets are available until the 4th October which knocks £25 off the normal price, there are also heavily discounted tickets available for students.
So what are you waiting for? Get involved!
