16 September- 1 October

There's not much time left for Somerset artists to register for Somerset Open Studios 2023!

The deadline to submit venue registrations is midnight Friday 7th April.

Somerset artists are invited to join Somerset Art Works and sign up for one of the biggest visual arts events in the south west, which returns this autumn. Registrations and interest are flooding in for what promises to be a busy event!

Later this year, Somerset Art Works artist members will open their doors to allow a glimpse into often-private spaces and workshops, alongside pop up venues, where audiences can meet the artist, see work in progress and visit the creative source. Open Studios is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in Somerset's cultural calendar.

Somerset is visually diverse and geographically vast, offering rich inspiration to countless artists and creatives over the years; from the romantic wilderness of Exmoor and The Quantock Hills, to the ruggedness of The Mendips, as well as the bustling coast, the calm of The Levels and busy market towns of the south.

Somerset provides a creative sanctuary for its many artists and makers working in fine art and craft, as well as multi disciplinary media and traditional materials such as willow, all of which will be on show during Open Studios. Whether it's discovering a new artist, buying from a favourite or seeking your own creative inspiration, the event's quality, variety and depth will amaze you.

Somerset Art Weeks takes place every autumn, alternating between Open Studios and Exhibitions + Events. After the return of the Art Weeks guide last year, Somerset Open Studios 2023 will feature a full programme of artist studios, demonstrations and activities for all to enjoy. The event is a fantastic way to explore the county, providing the opportunity to experience a wealth of creativity in often little-known places, and to make a day of it alongside the best of what Somerset has to offer in hospitality amid stunning locations.

For artists and venues wanting to join SAW and register their venue, please see information about Memberships, as well as how to take part in Open Studios, on the SAW website.

Venue registration closes on 7th April
