Welcome to Derbyshire Open Arts 2019

This year we're excited to announce there are 205 artists exhibiting at 132 venues throughout Derbyshire.

Over the next few months artists will be beavering away in their studios, getting ready for the Derbyshire Open Arts Spring Bank Holiday event. Painters, ceramicists, textile artists, glass makers, jewellers, photographers, printers and many more have been honing their craft to produce works of art to delight the senses.

Our ‘Open Arts’ event covers venues throughout Derbyshire and is free to all visitors. We request that artists ensure all material on show is suitable for family viewing. Many venues will be accessible to wheelchairs, but it is advisable to check each venue’s information.

Derbyshire Open Arts is a volunteer led organisation, run for and by artists and supporters of the arts in Derbyshire. It is funded entirely by artists’ subscriptions and our brochure advertisers. We distribute brochures throughout Derbyshire and beyond, in libraries, tourist information centres, hotels, galleries, cafes etc. Please do support our advertisers, where you have the opportunity, and let them know where you saw their advert, as they are helping us to keep the event going.
