NEOS 2018

8th to the 16th September

+++ NEOS 2018 and this website will be open for entries in March, please sign up to our mailing list for updates +++

In September each year our award winning collective of artists, makers and designers open their studios to the public. Featuring a diverse range of artists the NEOS event is a unique opportunity to meet and chat to individual artists, see their inspirations and working methods and learn about the huge wealth of talent we have in the North East of Scotland. Most artists will have work available for purchase and you may even wish to commission an original piece.

NEOS featured an amazing 265 artists, makers and designers. A wide range of work was on show from painting to printmaking, textiles, ceramics, photography and many more. This year we kept our Heritage Crafts discipline to tie in with Creative Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.

Our open studios event serves to engage wider audiences in all aspects of art to grow small-scale art and craft business in the north east of Scotland, and to provide a cohesive network of professional artists and makers.

If you are an artist, maker or designer and would like further information about NEOS, please contact us at or sign up to our mailing list to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
