Arran Open Studios Weekend

Friday 12th – Monday 15th August

This year’s 10th anniversary Open Studios event will take place over the weekend of 12th – 15th of August, right across the Isle of Arran. Our artists have come together once again to share their love and passion for their art with you.

Our invitation is extended to all, whether you already enjoy art, or are maybe just a wee bit curious. Whether you already love and feel inspired by the Isle of Arran or this is your first visit.

Full details of all the participating studios are here on this website and also in the printed brochure that is widely available on Arran and further afield. Whether you want to purchase the object of your desire, see how the artists and makers work, browse the studios and creative places or just pop in for a chat – rest assured you are very welcome.

You can also download the brochure as a PDF from our home page if you wish.

As well as the weekend itself, we are excited to announce two companion exhibitions, one in Brodick on the island and one in the Barony Centre in West Kilbride. Details for each are below.

Friday 15th - Monday 18th July

Open Studios 'Taster Exhibition' at Brodick Hall

In advance of the Open Studios weekend we plan a ‘Taster Exhibition’ in Brodick. The exhibition will feature a single piece from many of the artists participating in the weekend. It will give visitors a feel for the wide range and high quality of the work created by the artist and maker community here in Arran.

The exhibition will run over the weekend Friday 15th July to Monday 18th July, open 11am – 4pm on each of the four days. Entry is free. Brodick Hall is in the centre of the village and just a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal.

Saturday 20th August - Saturday 17th September

Arran Open Studios at the Barony Centre

We are delighted to be taking part in a major exhibition at the Barony Centre, West Kilbride, ‘The Story of an Artist/Maker’, as part of  Visit Scotland’s ‘Year of Stories, 2022’ initiative.

Our exhibit will tell the story of the Arran Open Studios over the past 10 years, through selected exhibits, testimony and recollection.
