North Yorkshire Open Studios – Louise Bass

June 9 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We are thrilled to be opening the doors to Beeforth’s Hive as a venue for North Yorkshire Open Studios 2024.

Local artist Louise Bass will be in residence for this years event.

Inspired by the seaside and a medley of characters Louise’s paintings are simple, fresh and colourful. She uses a combination of paint, print, stencil and collage in her work.

Louise’s painting Big Donkey, Small Bird won the East Coast People’s Choice Award at Scarborough Art Gallery last year.

She describes her home studio as a large table covered in paint and rollers, scissors and glue with a very old stripy cat and two large dogs for company. No donkeys yet !! She is making the Hive a home from home for the duration of the open house weekends (sadly still no donkeys).

Joining Louise to help celebrate the opening day of NYOS is our poet in residence Charlotte Oliver who will be inviting visitors to join her for some pop up poetry fun inspired by Louise’s artwork.

Visitors can drop into the Hive any time from 10am to 5pm where Louise will be on hand to answer any questions about her work. Everyone welcome.
