How to Apply
Our ethos is to promote the creative communities based in the area and showcase the range of work produced by local artists and students. To show all that the Arts are essential and important to our society. Open Art Spaces will allow visitors and local businesses to engage with the relationship between the artist and their art.
Open Art Studios will run over the weekend of 9th-10th October 2021.
During this time we have many different ways in which you can be involved:
-Open up your own home or private space for the public to show exhibit your artwork. We are open to all mediums and welcome all levels and experiences. It is at the artist's discretion if they want to sell their work. During this time participants are required to open their homes or studios.
