Artists living and working in north Norfolk wanting to raise their profiles and sell their work, are being invited to take part in next year's Norfolk Open Studios session.

Each May some 250 studios, backrooms, sheds and summerhouses are open to explore as more than 360 artists invite visitors to see them at work, join a workshop or demonstration or attend a private view.

In 2010, Norfolk Open Studios will run from Saturday, May 22 to Sunday, June 6. Any artist living or working in Norfolk can apply to take part.

The application fee includes a listing and image in the Norfolk Open Studios brochure and website, other promotional material and advice about how to encourage people to attend. It also includes the opportunity to take part in a taster exhibition and the chance to engage with other artists in the region.

Visitors to Norfolk Open Studios come from across the region and beyond year after year to be inspired by new and established artists. Last year more than 27,000 people visited a studio taking part in the scheme buying an estimated £222,000 of work.

Deadline for applications is Friday, December 11. For an application form please visit www.nnfestival.org.uk/openstudios or contact Katherine Stapley, visual arts administrator at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, on 01603 877757 or Katherine@nnfestival.org.uk.
