The major art event on the Island returns with up to 150 artists and craft designers/makers showing visitors, from the Island and and beyond, the amazing diversity and quality of original artwork Island artists produce.


Much is inspired by the sea and landscapes of the Island, with many other subjects, to intrigue you with the imagination and skill involved.

Studios and other venues across the Wight are free to enter and you will have a warm Island welcome. Much is for sale in all price ranges and you may find an artwork you must have! Artists will discuss their work and methods and many offer courses.

The Open Studios yearbook is free and found all over the Island from libraries, galleries, tourist points and venues, giving details of the artists and where to find them. Area maps help you plan an art trail and you will visit many beautiful parts of the Island.

Look out for the Red Bunting, meaning you have arrived.

Event sponsored by Red Funnel.

There is a showcase exhibition at Quay Arts, Newport, 6th to 27th July.
