Forth Valley Artbeat (Open Studios) celebrated its 9th year in June, with artists and organisations across Central Scotland hosting a variety of events. Kippen had 2 venues this year including JudyJamJar Mosaics. Judy works in her studio at Davarr Cottage and this year shared her venue with local glass artist, Shonah Escombe (ShogieB).
This was Judy’s second year with Artbeat and she was delighted with the increase in visitor numbers including many locals from the village. Her mosaics for home and garden have become increasingly popular and her studio can be visited at other times by arrangement. Both artists also sell their work from stalls at other local events as well as direct.
