Open Studios Notts

Bringing Artists into View

Open Studios Notts logo with event name and website

Open Studios Notts aims to widely promote Nottinghamshire artists and maker’s open studio events in co-operative collaboration, creating opportunities each year during May and June for visitors to connect with artists and to discover their work and practices.

Inspire supports Open Studios Notts by commissioning and curating photography exhibitions in our Library Galleries. The photos capture rare and varied behind-the-scenes images of the artists and crafts people's working worlds, shown alongside information about where to visit the Open Studios events taking place across the county.

Join us for a special exhibition celebrating 10 years of bringing artists into view!
