Who can take part in AOH?

Anyone living in the 01273 telephone area can take part in the Artists Open Houses (AOH) Festival as an Open House venue. Registration costs can be shared by all artists exhibiting in one venue, meaning that taking part in the festival can be affordable for everyone.

If you live outside the 01273 telephone area, you can still take part in AOH festivals by becoming a ‘guest artist’ exhibiting your work in someone else’s Open House. Take a look at the AOH Directory of artists and add yourself as an artist looking for an Open House to show in.

“ Artists Open Houses connect artists and makers with an audience of art-lovers, buyers and industry professionals – and is also fun to take part in, exhibiting with your friends in your own home.”
Judy Stevens, Artists Open Houses Festival Director

Ned Hoskins

AOH is sad to announce that Ned Hoskins, painter and founder of the Artist Open Houses, has died at the age of 81. Opening his house and his art to everyone was important to Ned. He believed art is for everybody. By removing the invisible barriers that kept people out of art galleries and inviting people into his home, Ned brought art to the people.
