What is ‘Somerset Open Studios’?

The event draws Art Weeks back to its roots; focusing on artists in their working environment. It concentrates on artists as individuals; how they make their work; their inspiration and creative processes. It aims to support artists who want to work professionally and looks to promote their creative business. Normally over 200 venues take part, where the public can visit artists’ own studios, homes and temporary work spaces!

This years event took place between 17 September- 2 October 2016.
