COS17: The 10th running of the hugely popular visual arts trail

COS17: 10 – 18 June

Original art made here

See the work of over 200 artists on an open-door-to-door trail of 73 venues. Meet the artists, view their work, learn about their practice. You can now download our brand new event guide book and press kit materials.

COS17 is the 10th time the artists from Cheltenham Open Studios have opened their doors to the public in this celebration of the visual art being made in the area. Now a biennial event, it  has become an important part of the cultural landscape for artists and art lovers alike. The first event, in 2001, saw just 46 artists take part; in 2015, the last time the event was staged, over 14,000 people visited the studios, workrooms and exhibition spaces of over 200 artists working in Cheltenham and its surrounds. This year’s event runs 10 to 18 June, and from the guide, looks to be even richer and more diverse than ever.

COS17 registration packs are now available.

We are very excited that the COS packs are ready, to join in please contact niki whitfield on
