Lonely HeARTS

Interested in taking part in the Summer Open Studios but need a venue or want to share with others?

Even though registration for next year's event doesn't open until 1st December, it's not too early to start thinking about possible venues.

It's your responsibility to find and organise a venue for your event before you sign up, but we appreciate that some artists are unable to exhibit from their own home or studio. While many visitors like to see the artists in their own environment, others prefer public venues rather than private homes. Experience also shows that groups of artists often attract greater footfall than those exhibiting on their own, but working as a group can present its own challenges.

Following the success of Lonely HeARTS for the 2019 event – which resulted in lots of matches – we are again encouraging artists to come together by offering to share their venue with other artists. Or, if you don't have your own venue, let's see if we can put you in touch with other lonely heARTists! 

Email the following information to admin@warwickshireopenstudios.org and we'll post your details on here to try and match you up.

Looking for artists?

WOS Offchurch – The artists who exhibit at the church in Offchurch village (which is already a successful and well-known venue) are looking for another one, possibly even two, artists to join them. Because of the use of space and the media already displayed in the church, they're only looking for the following types of media: pottery, glass, silversmithing, textiles or small 3D items. Take a look at https://www.facebook.com/WOSOffchurch/ and for more info contact Julie Law, julielaw1965@gmail.com, mob: 07837 152101
