Open Night at Bishop Street Studios
Bishop Street Studios is once again opening its front door on Culture Night and inviting residents and visitors to Derry to get to know the community of professional artists who work in the heart of the city.
If you are in town on Culture Night make sure to take a tour of the studios and see a wide variety of art in the making – contemporary art, traditional landscape painting, sculpture – and learn about how it is made directly from the artists.
Call in to see working artist studios in action and learn more about Bishop Street Studios
Bishop Street Studios were established following the City of Culture and have been running now for 10 years.
Our aim is to provide low cost studios for artists based in the area, so that they can work to create new original artwork, in whatever media they wish to pursue, and also support local art activities and projects.
We have 8 studios and we are always delighted to welcome visitors who would like to see working artist studios in action. Based at 11a Bishop Street (above the famous Hendersons Music shop) we will be open on Culture night to visitors who would like to know more about our group or just visit artists in the natural surroundings!
Suitable for all age groups - though we would require all children to be supervised (it can be a messy place) and unfortunately due to winding stairs our facilities are not easily accessible to folks with mobility issues - our apologies for that.
