Stamping your canvas on Day 1 will take place in Redmond Square, just across from the main Bus and Rail Station, Dunnes Stores and McCauley's Pharmacy. The formal (and informal) get together in the evening will be in T.Morris, not White's Hotel.

132 artists registered, more than 6 weeks still to go. Have you booked any workshops yet? Don't miss these opportunities to improve your game. Learning, sharing and celebrating are what Art in the Open is all about. Carpe diem.

Hi Patsy. That is great to hear.

By today, with 2 months still to go before the festival, 109 artists have completed their registration so you will have lots of good company. Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, UAE, UK, USA are all represented. Everyone acknowledges that the people who come make Art in the Open the remarkable and enjoyable event it is. Looking forward to meeting you here.

It's my favourite week of the year.

More than 50 signed up now with some of those workshops filling up quickly.

Just as an aside;- of 29 people registered so far, there are 9 from England, 1 from France, 2 from Germany, 1 from Italy, 9 from Rep. of Ireland, 1 from N.Ireland, 1 from Slovenia and 5 from USA.- that's already quite an impressive international line-up and measure of esteem. Marvellous.

Don't delay!.
