Devon Artists Network run the annual Devon Open Studios event, a unique opportunity to meet artists in their studios in some of the most beautiful, unexplored parts of Devon. In addition to being able to buy art direct from the creator, many demonstrate, give talks or give you a chance to have a go. Devon Open Studios 2013 runs from Saturday 7th until Sunday 22nd September.
Totnes and Dartington Open Studios 2013 runs from Friday 24th until Monday 27th May. The Open Studios Group first formed in 2000 as part of the Totnes & District Millennium Festival. In that year there were nineteen artists and craft workers. The number has remained fairly constant since that time with an Open Studios event taking place each year at the end of May. At each show there has been an interesting mix of media; painters, ceramicists, sculptors, print-makers, jewellers and weavers.
