Each year, a group of local talented artists residing in the City of Stirling open the doors of their private studios and galleries to the wider public for a special viewing.
In these intimate and inspired settings, art enthusiasts are invited to see the respective artists at work and peruse their unique artworks which will be up for sale.
There will be a wide range of artistic styles and techniques on display and all artists will be on hand to have a chat about their works, commissions and private tuition.
The participating studios and galleries will be open to the public on two consecutive Sundays; the 9th of February and 16th of February 2020 from 10am to 4pm. Entry is FREE.
Formulate your route with some friends and make a day of it.
