QSS Bedford St was one of 15 artist studio groups taking part in Belfast Open Studios 2017. This event (which was also part of the Belfast International Arts Festival) provided a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to gain behind-the-scenes access to the studios of some of Belfast’s brightest emerging and established artists and to explore a vast and diverse selection of artwork.
Artist studios at Bedford St were open to the public from 11am – 5pm on Saturday 21st October. On this day QSS also organised ‘Studio Spotlights’ with Gail Ritchie and Amanda Coogan plus an Acrylic Photo Demonstration with Ashley Holmes. Additional Studio Spotlights were held on Saturday 28th October with Susan Connolly and Colm Clarke. Lastly on Saturday 4th November Roisin Owens performed STICK.LIP in the gallery (curated by Amanda Coogan).
