If you are interested in joining Artists At Home to exhibit online all year round, you can do so at any time of year using our online application process. However, your application must have been accepted by 28th February if you wish to participate in the open studio weekend in June 2022. The information below may help answer some of your questions.
17th–19th June 2022
Friday 6–9pm; Saturday and Sunday from 11am–6pm.
Please note that your online artist page is your own personal exhibition space, and it is worth keeping your information and work up to date. Traffic to the AAH website is increasing, with the artist pages having over 12,000 unique visitors and 155,165 views in 2021.
Any serious practitioner in the fine or applied arts living or practising within the area defined on the map below may apply to join. The discipline might be painting, sculpture, ceramics, textile design, photography, printmaking or jewellery but this list is not exhaustive. Work shown must have been produced by the artist; mass-produced objects and works by artists who are not members of Artists At Home may not be exhibited.
Yes, if host and sharer(s) live within the Artists At Home area (see map) and are registered members of AAH. Please make a note on your application if you would like to be a host for another artist or are looking for someone to host you.
You can apply all year round to exhibit online but to be included in the June 2022 open studios event your application must have been accepted by 28th February.
There is an initial non-refundable joining fee of £140. In addition, the annual membership fee is £105. A member who doesn’t open their studio for more than two years in a row will have to re-pay the joining fee as well as their annual membership fee for their artist page to remain online.
No. Any sales agreed are between you the artist and your buyer. Artists at Home plays no role in any sales agreements.
We ask all artists to make sure they are open for the publicised times. Visitors are coming to see you and your work and it reflects badly on the event if you are not there to welcome them. We understand there may be unforeseen occasions when you have to step out, but please make sure someone else is there so visitors don’t have a wasted journey.
The event is run by a steering group of volunteer members, with support from the whole membership at key times. If you join, you are expected to participate and help with tasks such as distributing the printed studio guide. This will be coordinated by a zone leader and you will be given help and guidance.
You must supply a high resolution 'key image' to be used in the printed studio guide by 28th February 2022.
You can upload images and text to your online artist page as soon as your application for membership has been accepted and your fees paid. The sooner your page is populated, the sooner visitors can see your work. Your ‘key image’ and your (optional) headshot will be used by the Artists At Home team to promote your work. This is a year-round programme of social media with a big campaign to promote the annual live AAH open studios event which is paralleled online.
