THE 2020 EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON WEEKENDS OF 26/27TH SEPTEMBER AND 3/4TH OCTOBER – ALL 11AM TO 5PM. IT’S FREE TO VISIT AND FAMILY FRIENDLY
Now in its 4th year, Birmingham Open Studios allows artists of all standards to display their craft from their own homes or working studios. 67 artists exhibited across 33 venues during Birmingham Open Studios in 2019
The public can view all of the artists’ work – for free – in the artist’s creative environment, giving them an insight into the artist’s lives and creative processes
Public visits, purchases, praise and commissions give artists a reason to keep creating, and Open Studios means they do not have to pay sky-high commission rates to galleries on sales, instead keeping the earnings themselves. Our ethos is to promote creativity in the area, with a focus on community cohesion
We are growing annually, now covering the following areas: Moseley, Kings Heath, Balsall Heath, Hall Green, Selly Park, Stirchley, Cotteridge, Kings Norton, Selly Oak, Bournbrook, Harborne and some of Edgbaston (up to Hagley Road)
We have come a long way since our first event of 29 artists over 12 venues in 2017, and we now cover a considerably larger geographical area!
