Open Studios Northamptonshire

Founded in 1996, Open Studios Northamptonshire is the largest visual arts event in and around the county. During the first two weeks of September each year artists invite you into their studios to witness at first hand the inspiration and motivation which drives them to create. Step inside a pottery, discuss carving with a stonemason or watch demonstrations of painting, printmaking and crafts of all sorts. ‘Artist Search’ will show you the huge range of art activities featured this year in the Open Studios brochure and help you to choose where to visit.
Many artists will also present their work as groups in galleries, shops, pubs and a host of interesting alternative venues.

Each year our event begins with a Launch Exhibition representing most of our artists and a Preview Evening for artists and invited guests. The Exhibition continues for several weeks and this is an ideal place to view the range of work available before deciding where to visit.
