Northants Open Studios

Celebrating Northamptonshire artists and giving them a platform to reach new heights, Northants Open Studios brings you classic, quirky and cool works of art from talented local makers.

There’s little we love more than having a good nose round someone else’s creative space, but throw in the chance to bring home some unique artworks to keep forever and we are all over it. Northants Open Studios promotes artists across the county at every level of their careers by helping them to connect with collectors, gallerists and potential buyers – that’s you, BTW.

September 2021 sees a festival of the visual arts in which artists working in all media invite you into their incredible studio spaces to find out how their work is produced, giving them a chance to share what makes them tick and just what goes in to making each individual piece. Fancy having a go yourself? You’ll also be able to catch demonstrations of painting, printmaking and traditional crafts to get you inspired. Plus, make sure you don’t miss the clutch of fabulous group exhibitions to explore at some of Northamptonshire’s most jaw-dropping venues including Boughton House, Lamport Hall, Delapré Abbey, 78 Derngate and many more.

Check out the eclectic mix of styles and disciplines being embraced by our exquisitely talented local artists –  you’ll find painting drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, digital media and many more ways of creating and, what’s more, entry to all venues is FOC.

Jeyes of Earls Barton are set to kick the festivities off on 4 Sept with a launch party (3-7pm), so head down there to check out some of the works from participating artists and get a taste of what to expect.
