The last Somerset Art Weeks Open Studios events finished on Sunday 3rd October 2010. More than 200 studios/venues across the county opened to the public featuring over 300 local artists. The event focuses on individual artists in their working environment, looking at how they work, their inspiration and creative processes. We will leave the pages up so you can find out who was involved, and see the art work that was on display.
Next Open Studios Event takes place from 15 to 30 September, 2012. Registration opens on November 2011. Registration deadline February 2012. Please see Open Studios Event 2012 for details.
