Swindon Open Studios is an annual community exhibition during which artists invite members of the public into their studios and homes for a chance to see where and how their art is made during two consecutive weekends with a chance to buy original pieces of art.
Swindon Open Studios is organised by a committee of volunteers who are passionate about art and keen to publicise each other and the artwork being produced in Swindon.
The first Open Studios was in 2004 with a follow up in 2006. From 2008 onwards the open studios event has been held annually until the intervention of COVID in 2020 and 2021.
2022 saw the welcome return of this popular community event and last year, we saw the largest number of artists participating since the event's inception.
In celebrating 20 years of of Swindon Open Studios, 2024 looks set to be another bumper year.
