Artists’ Studio Museum Network

The Watts Gallery have recently launched an online network of over 50 artist’s studio museums http://watts-studio-museum.dev.wearefarm.com/. They are in the process of opening their own studio museum, in the former home of the artist George Frederic Watts (1817-1904), and have set up this network to promote and link studio museums across Europe. Their intention is that participating museums will be able to share expertise, marketing opportunities and best practice.

Porthmeor Studios is listed on the site here, and we have also contributed a case study, Porthmeor Studios: Past and Future.
