WELCOME TO ISLE OF WIGHT ARTS OPEN STUDIOS
This website gives you the perfect opportunity to meet our artists and craftspeople through their webpages, view their work, make contact to buy work or find out about workshops and courses, check out exhibitions and events through the calendar, and network to find out more about making and exhibiting on our beautiful Island.
For visitors, our July Open Studios event enables you to see a huge range of work from artists both contemporary and traditional in their own studios or at local venues. Entry to every Open Studio is free and will offer you a warm welcome to view a great range of work including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, jewellery and ceramics. When you see the red Open Studios bunting, you know you've arrived!
For artists - applications to exhibit in July or be included in the Yearbook are now closed.
We now offer a webpage-only option (fee £35) giving you almost unlimited capacity to display pictures of your work, include a profile of yourself and advertise any exhibitions you're taking part in. Once you are a member of Open Studios, you can apply for any further Open Studios exhibition opportunities arranged for the current year. 2012 saw our first Open Studios @ Christmas so watch this space!
