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 for visitors to connect with artists and to discover their work and practices.

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

Each year a number of artists and craftspeople taking part in the event are selected to have their work and workplaces featured in our exhibitions. Who will be on the wall in 2024?

Would you like to exhibit your artwork in an exhibition?
