Art En-Route Cyprus – The Mission of art-en-route-cyprus is to provide a platform for all artists in Cyprus from which to promote their work and to make it easy for art and culture loving people to view and pursue their interests by making contact with individual artists across the island.
In 2006 David Lester (RIP) and Sue Harding spearheaded the Open Studio movement which grew from small beginnings to great heights and then died a slow death for various reasons. Since Open Studios ceased operation, participating artists had to find a way in which to promote their work themselves. Maria Etheridge (owner of art-en-route-cyprus) enthusiastically participated in the Open Studios project since its inception and worked closely with all participants and shared their feelings. She started thinking of ways in which to create another open studios-type forum.
