Cowal Open Studios at Ardentinny

Ardentinny’s artists had a busy time over the weekend with the opening of their studios to the public as part of the excellent Cowal Open Studios event. With some 30+ artists participating this year, the annual event is the largest ever. Three Ardentinny artists welcomed visitors during the 4-day event: Guy Elder (wood), Freda Waldapfel (oil and watercolor paint) and  Bill Williamson (ceramics). Bill who works  mainly in stoneware and raku clay, said “The Open Studios concept is a tremendous opportunity for the artists and the public at large to interact. We had a stream of visitors throughout the weekend. I would really like to pass on my thanks to the organisers who helped make the event so successful”.

I spoke on the telephone this evening for the first time with Bill Williamson, who I have never otherwise
met.
He immediately, struck me as a sensitive and caring artist. and as a sentient and caring Human Being.

I look forward to visiting his studio.

more power to your elbow, Bill, keep realising the potential of lumps of clay, and thus motivating we less talented individuals to realise our own potential
