Over 100 awe-inspiring Swindon artists will be welcoming you as they throw open their doors at 67 studios and pop-up galleries during the last two weekends of September (22, 23, 29, 30) during the much loved Swindon Open Studio community art event.
With a record number of locations listed for 2018, the event is preparing to wow its Swindon audience more than ever! Artists will open their studios, workshops and pop-up galleries to showcase inspirational artwork in a wide range of media from ceramics and glass, to jewellery, photography, textiles, printmaking, painting and sculpture. From amateur artists to professional, traditional, to cutting-edge and contemporary this year’s artist listing has something to inspire all sensibilities.
Swindon Open Studios is a unique chance for you to meet artists and see where the magic happens –the whole ‘muck and mess’ of the process in some cases! In most studios there you will have the chance to buy original pieces of art, limited edition prints or greetings cards and the chance to enter our free prize draw for the art lovers who visit the most Open Studios locations in and around Swindon.
A sample of artists work will be on view during the month of September in several business windows throughout Swindon including John Lewis, Deacons and Darkroom Espresso as part of our preview. And, there will be an official launch party which the Mayor of Swindon will attend on Friday 14 September at the Central Community Centre.
