Online-Only Open House listings
What is an Online-only Open House listing?
Due to the current circumstances, this year in addition to regular Open House listings, we are also offering Online-only listings for artists who prefer to open their house ‘virtually’ this time. Online-only listings will receive an eighth page brochure listing as well as full online presence. (After registration closes on 22nd March Online-only listings will remain available until the 29th May, when the festival starts, but will not include a brochure presence.)
What do I get for my listing?
As well as an image and listing description Online-only listings comprise:
Online-only Listings offer a dedicated gallery showing twelve images of your work with a link to your email, phone number, Etsy or website, so that visitors to the site can buy work directly from you.
You will also be able to make and upload a video to your listing, this could be a virtual tour of your Open House, or you may like to show samples of work, explaining the processes of making and ideas behind your work.
Galleries images and video links can be updated at any time up to and including during the festival period.
Will my Online-only Listing appear in the AOH printed brochure?
Online-only Listings booked before the 22 March deadline will have an 1/8 page presence in the AOH printed brochure comprising an image, 30 words and your your contact details. You have 75 words for your online listing, but make sure that the most important information is in the first 30 words as this is what will appear in the printed brochure.
Online-only listings are still available after the 22 March deadline and right up to the start of the Festival on 29 May.
Online-only listings booked after the 22 March deadline will not have a presence in the AOH printed brochure but will have same full online presence as all listings.
How much will it cost me?
Online-only Open House listings cost £160 per listing (£100 after 22nd March with no AOH brochure presence). Listings can be shared with other artists, but we don’t recommend sharing with more than two or three other artists maximum, as this will limit the number of gallery images per artist.
Can I add more images to my online-only listing’s gallery?
Yes you can add more images to your online-only listing’s gallery. You already have 12 gallery images available. You then have the opportunity – for a small additional charge – to add more images in groups of 6. Up to 36 images can be shown in total.

Who can take part as an AOH online-only listing?

What can’t I add to my online-only listing?

If I take a regular Open House listing will I get the above new facilities?
Yes all regular Open House listings will also include these features for no extra charge:
You will receive a dedicated gallery showing six images of your/your artists work with a link to your email, phone number, Etsy or website, so that visitors to the site can buy work directly from you.
