NYOS enables artists and makers to open their studios, meet, promote and sell their work direct to the public on 4/5 & 11/12th June 2022.
North Yorkshire Open Studios is a selected, annual event showcasing the work of over 100 artists across the region.
The event, now in its fifteeth year, has grown to become one of the major events in North Yorkshire’s cultural calendar, as well as one of the North’s most prestigious open studios events.
With studios located right across the county, from the remote hills of the Upper Dales to the suburban streets of Harrogate, across the Vale of York to the rural North York Moors and Coast, visitors have the opportunity to visit unique and varied artist venues, surrounded by stunning North Yorkshire landscapes.
*You must live or have a permanent studio address within North Yorkshire to be eligible for this event.*
There is no fee to apply. Successful applicants pay £150 to take part.
We run an Emerging Maker Scheme (must have set up within the last 2 years) with a reduced participation fee of £75.
Artists pay 5% commission on all sales over £250.
