4. Don't miss Devon Open Studios 2020 which is now on!

Devon Open Studios is a unique opportunity to meet artists in their studios in some of the most beautiful, parts of Devon including the Jurassic Coast seaside locations and villages and towns across East Devon.

The event runs from Saturday 12th September - Sunday 27th September. Many studios open every day for opening times see the online brochure.

In addition to being able to buy art direct from the creator, many demonstrate, give talks or give you a chance to have a go.

In East Devon studios ranging from Jo Talbot Bowen in Budleigh Salterton showing original glass art and printmaking and Lisa Parkyns expressive paintings at Kennaway House Sidmouth to the Savooni Gallery in Seaton showing work by 3 artists Nigel Waters, Richard Webster and Ali Foxcroft.

A cornucopia of art is on offer across Devon when over 200 resident artists and crafts people open their studios to show and sell their individual artworks to the public each September. The diversity of studios is remarkable; as here you can explore venues ranging from potter’s studios in meadows to medieval barns, sinuous sculpture gardens or garrets by the sea. These hidden havens reveal fascinating work in every medium that allows the opportunity to purchase affordable art, directly from the artist, and without gallery commission.

Meet the artists, participate in workshops and events, or simply create your own journey of discovery in this most spectacular landscape.
