Art Ache

Art Ache delves into the studios of artists and shares the stories and treasures within.

On the evening of Late Night Art, Art Ache will be hosting a back-alley soiree inspired by the romance of ‘the artists studio’. All art lovers are invited. At the event there will be a selection of studio treasures in the form of test strips, sketches and the odd masterpiece, available to purchase directly from the artists' studio. But be quick! This is a rare opportunity and the bespoke studio items are coveted!

Art Ache aims to create a lasting connection between the artist and anyone who is curious about art, but not sure where to start. It aims is to make art and culture part of the everyday conversation.

Artists who will have their work available:

Karl Maughan
