North Yorkshire Open Studios

Important information regarding NYOS

We are sorry to announce that North Yorkshire Open Studios won’t be happening in 2018. Chrysalis Arts recently undertook a review and evaluation of NYOS and in consultation with Arts Council England, the Chrysalis Arts Board made the decision to discontinue NYOS in its current form. This decision was not taken lightly and is mainly due to the increased risk to the company following cuts in local authority funding.

Chrysalis Arts is working with artists involved in previous NYOS events to investigate the potential of artists taking a coordinated open studios event forward. This means that North Yorkshire Open Studios in its previous form won’t be happening again, however, there is potential that an artist run open studios event taking place across North Yorkshire will happen in 2019.

We will post information on the NYOS website and this page regarding developments, following further consultation with the artists.

A huge thank you to all our visitors who have supported and visited NYOS over the past twelve years. We hope that you will have opportunities in the future to experience the talent of North Yorkshire artists in their studios.

Chrysalis Arts has other arts related events and exhibitions happening across North Yorkshire and bordering areas throughout the year, visit the Events page for more info.

“It’s great to be part of North Yorkshire Open Studios, to get your work out there to a bigger audience, to be part of a high quality event and to meet people face to face and get feedback from those long solitary hours in the studio.“

“1 car, 2 days, 4 friends, 14 artists studio’s visited, 18 different artists work admired, over 300 miles traveled. Home now… tired, happy and totally inspired. Fantastic weekend at NY Open Studio’s – thank you NY artists.”
