Meadow Mill Launch Weekend | Wasps Artists’ Studios
May 23, 2012
WASPS will be officially opening our Meadow Mill studios in Dundee on Sat 26th May 2012. This opening is part of the Ignite Dundee programme, a ten day celebration of creativity and culture across Dundee, Angus and Fife which takes place between the 10th – 27th May 2012.
Now in its second year, Ignite covers a whole range of events from dance, design, exhibition, film, fine art, literature, open studios and pecha kucha to previews, talks, theatre and workshops. for full listings, please see the brochure attached on the left in the downloads section.
We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the recent redevelopment of Meadow Mill studios which created 58 studio spaces with heating and double glazing, spaces for graduates and shared use and a gallery/project space on the top floor.
The artist tenants are now settled back into their new and improved studio spaces and nine new artists will be moving in the week before the launch weekend. To see who is working in Meadow Mill studios at the moment, please visit the community page.
Over the weekend of the 26th and 27th May, the studios will be open to the public between 12-5pm. Alongside Open Studios, there will be an exhibition named Relaunch showcasing the new gallery space and featuring work by invited artists. Other artists working in the city will also be invited along to collaborate. On the evening of Saturday 26th from 5pm, we will be holding a drinks reception to toast a new and exciting beginning for Meadow Mill and we whole heartedly envite all our supporters, regular visitors and friends to come and join us!
