Surrey Artists Open Studios: Discover the diversity and creativity of Surrey artists, 11-26 June 2022
Artists open their doors over 16 days in June, explore, meet and enjoy!
For sixteen days in June Surrey artists will be welcoming the public into their studios for the annual Surrey Artists Open Studios (SAOS) event taking place in artist’s studios right across the county.
This year there will be over 270 artists taking part in 170 studios. A bumper year with a fantastic array of artists taking part across Surrey.
As well as a chance to meet and talk to artists in their place of work, the summer open studios event offers visitors the opportunity to view demonstrations, buy artwork, enter a free prize draw and even get involved in creative workshops. Studio locations are throughout Surrey and its borders.
The launch weekend takes place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June with artists offering an array of activities exclusively for first weekend visitors to this popular county-wide event. There will be the opportunity to take part in taster workshops with different materials across the arts and crafts, scheduled specially for the opening weekend.
SAOS has been running for 22 years representing the best in the county’s creativity and shining a light on makers, artists and creatives producing everything from ceramics and jewellery to paintings and sculpture. Visitors can find information about which studios and artists are taking part via our website: Brochures will be available from early May in libraries, key galleries and at artists’ studios.
SAOS Manager, Caitlin Heffernan says: “SAOS is a wonderful opportunity to discover the county’s creativity as well as the artists on your doorstep. And not only will you uncover a vast range of artworks made by a truly impressive array of over 250 individual artists, you will also find some unique pieces to take home with you.”
