What's the difference between "Isle of Wight Arts" and "Open Studios"?

Isle of Wight Arts is the organisation that operates this website (www.isleofwightarts.com) and runs the various Open Studios events throughout the year (July, Christmas etc).

If you would like like to take part in any Open Studios event or be listed on the website, you first need to be a member of Isle of Wight Arts. Membership lasts for 1 year.

I'm already a member of Isle of Wight Arts, what do I do?

If already know your login details then you can . If you have forgotten your login details, your can . Alternatively, please get in touch if you are unsure.

How do I take part in Open Studios?

First, select the "Yearly Membership" option, then select the type of Open Studio you wish to hold.

You can either hold a Solo Open Studio, or you can Share your Open Studio with other artists. The Open Studios are also split into West and East Wight and are held on successive weekends.

Can I take part in both East & West Wight Open Studios?

Sure you can. In fact, there is a major discount for taking part in both. Once you have selected the first weekend in the West Wight, you have the option to select an additional weekend in the East Wight.

When do I fill in the details about my Open Studios?

After you have clicked the "Continue to payment" and gone through the payment process successfully you will see an easy-to-use form for your details. This doesn't need to be completed right away, and you can always save it to come back to at a later date.

There may be a deadline to complete the information by, but this will be made clear to you when you come to complete the form.

I don't want to take part in the Open Studios. Can I just be listed in your YearBook?

Yep. You still need to select the "Yearly Membership" option, but you can then select the "Listing in Year Book" option.

I just want a page on the Isle of Wight Arts website and don't want to take part in the events.

That's fine too. Simply select the "Yearly Membership" option and you can enjoy all the same benefits as all the other members.

If you change your mind, simply return to this page and select more options.

What do I get for being a member of Isle of Wight Arts?

  • Your own page on the website with your own web address (e.g. isleofwightarts.com/your-name)
  • Visitors to the website can find you by name, location, medium or keywords
  • An online gallery for you to display your work
  • A page on the website for you to advertise exhibitions you are taking part in
