Artist Studio Network (ASN) is a series of exhibitions and networking events bringing together Artist Studio networks aimed at creating a platform for sharing skills, instigating creative conversations and nurturing new projects.

First starting in 2018 linking up the elysium studios with artist networks in North Wales, this latest  ASN exhibition will showcase the work of artists from elysium studios, Swansea and Sample-Studios in Cork.

SAMPLELYSIUM marks 30 years since Swansea was twinned with Cork and kick starts a year of planned online talks and discussion between artists from the two cities. The exhibition will include depictions of artists studios as well showcasing the work of over 70 artists from both creative communities.

The Artist Studio Network contributes to the sharing of expertise, research and ideas across artists and galleries who are geographically kept apart.

Sample-Studios is one of Ireland’s largest artist studios, based in Churchfield, Cork City. With a membership of 110+ visual artists and arts practitioners. Sample Studios supports and promotes emerging and established contemporary practitioners of the arts from Cork and beyond, through affordable artist-run studios, to sustain and develop local, regional and international initiatives and to promote research and community outreach projects.
