Whanganui is known for its culture, heritage and creative spirit. Artists Open Studios is testament to that fact.

Artists Open Studios embraces Whanganui’s culture, heritage and creative spirit.

Artists open their private studios giving you an opportunity to see them at work, whilst pop-up collectives let you see some of Whanganui’s heritage buildings used for creative purpose, along with galleries opening their doors and sharing their knowledge.

In 2019 there will be a variety of events and entertainment collaborating with Artist Open Studios to come and enjoy the best of what Whanganui has to offer!

A Word From The Organisers

I am very excited to work with the AOS Trust to deliver the 2019 event. We are currently busy carefully preparing the Trail Guide and new website format.

If you would like to participate either as an Artist, or if you think you could contribute to the event with entertainment or hospitality, please contact me via email to discuss options.
