Horsham artists organise the Horsham Artists’ Open Studios event to allow visitors an insight into an artist’s working practice, through visiting artists in their studio spaces or viewing finished work in exhibition spaces and having the chance to discuss artists techniques used in their creative process.
We are fortunate in the Horsham area to have a wonderful selection of talented artists producing a real variety of different forms of artwork. The art is all original, all produced by hand with skill and care.
The artists include painters, illustrators, print makers, sculptors, ceramicists, wood turners, jewellers, glass artists, photographers and textile artists.
Horsham Artists Open Studios events are a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk to local artists about their craft, to see a selection of their work and have an opportunity to purchase original and unique works of art.
Horsham Artists Open Studios artists appreciate how much encouragement local people have given to supporting creativity in the Horsham area in the past.
We hope you will take the time to visit both weekend events and see both new and established local artists. We look forward to seeing you.
Open studios is for artists in the Horsham District who want to open their studios to the public or share an exhibition space for the purpose of promoting and selling their work. Open to amateur and professional artists working in a variety of 2D & 3D mediums whose common interest is the joy of creating. There is no selection process and whilst some of the artists are established professionals, others could be at the beginning of an exciting journey where the opportunity of networking and support from others is invaluable.
We ask all HAOS Artists to contribute £10 annually to pay for venue hire for our monthly meetings, this applies to all artists even if they do not attend meetings, as it is at meetings that the work is done to run our events.
