We encourage artists to use their own homes and studios (don't be afraid to use your kitchen or dining room as an exhibition space) but understand some may prefer to share exhibition space with a friend or use a different, more public venue.

We are therefore grateful to the following organisations who have offered spaces for artists.


Note - you may be responsible for your own public liability insurance so you should confirm this with the venue. Similarly, there may be costs associated with exhibiting i.e. commission on sales or venue hire costs and again, these should be confirmed with the venue.


Swindon Open Studios and its committee are not responsible for arranging venues unless otherwise specified.
