ARTISTS are being encouraged to join Coventry and Warwickshire’s biggest, free art event.

Warwickshire Open Studios, a voluntary organisation run by artists for artists, showcases creative work across the region.

After the cancellation of last year’s physical event, the Open Studios team is launching two options this year including one to showcase their work directly to art-lovers at a place of their choosing – at home, in a studio, workshop or garden – or to showcase them virtually. This year the event will take place from June 19 to July 4.

In 2019, the event drew more than 31,000 visitors. Work included paintings, photography, installations, ceramics, glassware, stoneware, jewellery, drawings, printmaking, textiles and metalwork.The event also gives artists complete flexibility about when they choose to be open during the fortnight.

Don Mason, Warwickshire Open Studios director, said “Opening your studio or home, or joining in with a group, has so many benefits for our artists. It’s a great, low cost option to show people your work, and share your techniques and inspirations. This helps build a network with current and potential collectors, and will also hopefully lead to sales!

“Gathering feedback and talking to others about your art is incredibly rewarding and invaluable in developing your practice and growing your confidence.”

The deadline for sign-up is March 31.
