About Cheltenham Open Studios

Cheltenham Open Studios is a not-for-profit association run by artists for artists. Like other Open Studios organisations around the country, it is evolving out of an art festival event into a thriving community of artists.

About the Open Studios Event

By networking artists together, Cheltenham Open Studios aims to raise the profile of visual arts in the area, make people aware of the diversity of talent on their doorsteps, pursue new funding opportunities and inspire and encourage local artists.

Every two years, at the beginning of June, we put on a major event where nearly 200 artists open their homes and studios to the public. Well promoted throughout Cheltenham and its surrounds, this format has proven to be an extremely successful way of engaging people directly with the art being created in this area.
