South East Open Studios – The Art of Giving

The great Pablo Picasso said: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”…so what could be better than giving your loved ones the gift of art?

You’ll find 200 SEOS artists and makers situated across the whole of the South East. Some of our artists practise painting, printmaking, pottery and sculpture; some produce artworks with textiles, glass, wood and digital imagery; some are cabinet makers, jewellery makers and silversmiths… and so much more!

Choosing art as a gift can be challenging, but many of our artists will work with their buyers to make sure it is right, or will produce vouchers that can be redeemed for commissions or special pieces. There’s something for all budgets – prices range from £5 to £5,000.

You can browse our members’ work on our website to get a taste of the vast array of talent available in your local area:

If you are an artist or maker living in Kent, East Sussex or the Surrey borders and want to take part in South East Open Studios next June (3rd to 19th), sign up to our newsletter at and watch out for announcements on our social media channels – @seopenstudios.

Make sure you don’t miss SEOS 2022, it’s our 25th anniversary and promises to be the biggest and best yet.
