25 Sep Introducing: Sussex Open Studios
This Saturday a new and exciting art/design/food/furniture pop-up exhibition space launches at Sussex Open Studios in Woodstock. Being described as ‘an interactive lifestyle destination’, Sussex Open Studios is a newly renovated industrial space developed as a collaboration between King Juliet Productions, Dawie Swart Developments and Nest Living and transformed into residential property. Sussex Studios consists of 19 generously proportioned, open-plan living units that for their first few weeks will house a range of pop-up events and exhibitions that show off the space as much as the art and design temporarily on show in it.
Photography, illustration, fine art, installations, clothing and jewellery by new and established local designers, artists and craftsmen will be exhibited. Some of the long line-up includes Jana + Koos, Lucie De Moyencourt, Thingking, Renee Rossouw, Betina du Toit, Klomp Ceramics, Pedersen & Lennard, Opus and ShineShine.
The space also includes Salud Taqueria, a contemporary Mexican pop-up restaurant promising to be a lively space to meet and interact with attending artists and visitors. Drambuie, Patron, Devils Peak Brewery, Lynx Boutique Estate Wines and Bos Ice tea have joined the project too. Salud Taqueria will be open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Visit the Facebook event page for info about the Sussex Open Studios official opening on Saturday 27 September from 9am – 5pm. The studios will be open until 7 November 2014.
