Clear View Open Studio 2010 (Nita Rao, Tony Thory & Jo Sheppard)
Three local artists will be opening their Quorn studio to the public twice over this summer, over the weekends of 22nd and 23rd of May, and the 19th and 20th of June. This provides a unique opportunity to see inside an exciting and dynamic artists studio. Nita Rao, Jo Sheppard and Tony Thory are holding their Open Studio contemporary art exhibition on the Clearview Business Park on Loughborough Road (by Loughborough Road Nurseries).
This will be the forth time the artists have opened their studio together, and there will be a variety of new creations for you to browse. Nita Rao has been working on a new series of work and will be exhibiting smoke fired ceramics, bronze sculptures and paintings as well as an installation. Photographer Tony Thory will be showing a selection of new photographs and experimental prints, many of which are based on the local woodland such as the Jubilee and Outwoods. Jo Sheppard produces contemporary textural paintings inspired by Mediterranean architecture and natural forms, and will have several works on view, from small pencil studies to 6ft x 4ft oil paintings. nita rao bronze

Jo Sheppard comments “This is such an exciting time for us- it’s the highlight of our calendar and we all work hard to produce new work for the show. So few locals know we are here, many people are really surprised when they first find us- its great to meet the visitors and discuss our work with them- we really enjoy it.”
Most of the works will be for sale with prices starting at £1.50 for an original hand made card. With hundreds of pieces to be browsed, there should be something to suit all tastes. Admission is free with doors open from 10am to 5pm . Refreshments will also be available. Access via stairs.
