One of the first discoveries that we made on moving out to the Fife coast is that we were not the only artists living here… there’s loads! Within Fife, it’s the north around Cupar and St. Andrews that tend to get all the attention but that’s perhaps because for the past seven years, the artists in the north have been taking part in the Open Studios program.
Open Studios North Fife gives folk the chance to wander around artist’s studios, meet the artist (and watch them making stuff), browse their work and buy any pieces of art that interest you. From reading this year’s North Fife program, we learned that most artists live in places that have easy on-street parking and most seem very happy to give out cake, lots of cake and cups of tea. If you missed the May event, you’ll be happy to learn that many of the artists involved welcome visits throughout the year by appointment.
Credit where it’s due, it was Rose who said ‘We must do this!’ and so we will be. The event in May was for artists in north Fife… we live in Central Fife. Our event will be in August between 11th and 26th August. For those who don’t know, we live in Kinghorn which lies on the Fife Coastal Path. If any added enticement was needed, we have a large garden with uninterrupted views clear across to our beautiful Edinburgh.
