Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



DEADLINE: 31 MARCH 2021 Somerset-based artists are invited to register for SOMERSET OPEN STUDIOS (18 Sept- 3 Oct 2021). Now one of the country’s largest Open Studios events, it showcases the work of Somerset Art Works Members in a range of private and pop up workspaces across the county – celebrating the source of art, making, design and craft in Somerset. Between 18 September and 3 October 2021, artists demonstrate how they make their work; their process, practice and inspiration. The event allows a rare opportunity for visitors to engage with artists in person and to see inside their studios, temporary working spaces and other locations to find out what goes on behind the scenes. Artists’ Open Studios can be found in unusual and unexpected locations and the event is an ideal opportunity to explore the different and distinct regions of the county and make some surprising discoveries. Since its inception in 1994, Somerset Art Weeks has become an important event in Somerset’s calendar delighting art lovers and collectors from near and far. Drawing Art Weeks back to its roots, Open Studios focuses on artists in their working environment as they make and share new work and ideas in a social act of collaboration with inquisitive visitors. Open Studios encourages cultural exploration, discovery and dialogue in an atmosphere of creativity, experimentation and inclusivity. Building on last year’s Digital Open Studios, this year’s event will continue to include appropriate planning and information to enable visitors to engage safely with the event. Somerset Open Studios showcases established names as well as introducing new and emerging artists. Visitors will also be able to find out first-hand about the creative process through an accompanying event programme including demonstrations, workshops, talks and visiting residencies, to inspire, educate and delight.
