From North Yorkshire Open Studios:
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 social media media pages 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.
Note to local artists: if you are opening your studio. or arranging an exhibition, please send us details for free publicity on the Kirkbymoorside town blog. Ed
