Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2015 will run from Saturday 23 May to Sunday 7 June.Norfolk & Norwich Festival has delivered Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios (NNOS) in partnership with Norfolk artists for 20 years, and it has grown to become one of the largest and most successful Open Studios schemes in the country.
For 16 days each year, NNOS celebrates the county’s artists and their achievements by offering them the opportunity to open their doors to the public to exhibit, sell and talk about their work. NNOS 14 saw over 550 artists taking part in 272 venues across Norfolk. 16 Norfolk Schools were also involved, showing the exceptional artistic talent of young people in the county.
Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios gives visitors the opportunity to see new art, meet artists, and - with many of the works on display being for sale - to buy original artworks directly from their creators.
Studios are FREE to visit and visitors don't need to book in advance, unless they are a large group.
For two weeks each year NNOS celebrates the county's artists and their achievements, when they open their doors to the public to exhibit, sell and talk about their work.Each year, the NNOS website and brochure publishes details of all artists taking part in the scheme. The brochure is made available in many venues across Norfolk from early/mid April, or you can download a version from this website. Each artist is listed alphabetically within a geographical district of the county.
Many artists also organise additional events or agree to further opportunities, such as commissions or welcoming visitors throughout the year.
Now an integral part of Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios, Art Trails allow visitors to make a memorable day out of their Open Studios visit.
Events & Demonstrations
Many artists run special events and activities during the scheme, offering visitors the chance to get creative and have a go themselves!
Regional taster exhibitions are held throughout the county, to give people a chance to see the variety of art work and working methods that can be seen during NNOS. A Central Taster exhibition is also held at the Forum in Norwich in April, ahead of the opening of the scheme in May. This brings together works from NNOS artists and gives visitors a flavour of what's to come, giving them time to plan their open studio visits.
