North Yorkshire Open Studios enables artists and makers to open their studios, meet, promote and sell their work direct to the public, over the first two weekends in June. Exhibitions, master classes, workshops and other activities contribute to a large-scale high quality contemporary arts event for a national and regional audience.
The event is in its twelfth year and has grown incrementally to become one of the major events in North Yorkshire’s cultural calendar, as well as one of the North’s most prestigious open studios event. For visitors and art buyers, North Yorkshire Open Studios is a unique opportunity to meet artists, to gain an insight into how their work is produced, find out what inspires them and to buy high quality art and craft directly from them.
North Yorkshire Open Studios is run by Art Connections, a Chrysalis Arts project and is supported by Arts Council England. For more information on Chrysalis Arts, visit www.chrysalisarts.com
