Open Studios

Open Studios are a long established tradition at Porthmeor, when artists used to invite the public into their studios on Show Days to see their paintings before they were sent up to London.

Open Studios now takes place in late May for artists from all over Cornwall, and in September for Porthmeor artists. Details of the next Open Studios will be posted here when they are available.
