Summer Art Weeks 2022

SIGN-UP FOR THE 2022 EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.

Opening your studio / home or coming together with other creatives in a shared space has so many benefits for artists. You can be creative about where you show your work: it could be at home, in a studio, workshop or garden. Pop-up exhibitions have been held in cafes, offices, barns, museums and church halls. Installations have even taken place in allotments, canal basins and railway carriages!

Options for 2022

Individual or organisation – £95

You will get your own page on the Summer Art Weeks section of the website as well as your own text, image and details of your event in the printed brochure.

Small group of 5 to 7 artists – £420

This year we are encouraging artists to enter as individuals (even if you are joining other artists at the same venue). Therefore, we have simplified the options for groups.

You can have a small group of between 5 and 7 artists. You will get a full page in the brochure about the group and a group entry on the Summer Art Weeks section of the website. Everyone taking part must be a member of WOS and as such will receive all the associated benefits.

Large group of 8+ artists – poa

For 2022 we would like large groups of eight or more artists to contact us directly to discuss the best options – please email admin@warwickshireopenstudios.org to provide us with further information about your group.
