York Open Studios 2014 Launch Exhibition

4 March 2014

Every year, to launch Open Studios, we put on a taster exhibition. It is a great opportunity to see the range of artists showing in the event and perhaps help you select which studios to visit.

This year, as part of the Yorkshire Cultural Festival linking in with the Tour de France Grand Départ, our selected artists were asked to produce work on the theme of ‘Grand Départ’.

The exhibition is at Blossom Street Gallery, just outside Micklegate Bar, and runs from 18 March to 13 April.  Tuesday – Saturday 9.30 – 5.30, Sunday 10 -3. Free admission.

York Open Studios at York Hospital

29 May 2013

You may not be aware that the hospital in York is one of the largest selling galleries in the city. YOS has a long standing relationship whereby artists participating in Open Studios also submit work to be displayed in the hospital. Take a look, you do not need to be ill or injured to visit this unusual gallery!

All pictures are displayed along the "Main Road" which is the long wide corridor running the length of the building.
