NEOS is right here on your doorstep

Come and explore our Open Studios

Come and explore our open studios, make the most of this unique opportunity to visit artists in their creative spaces, chat about their work and find out about their artistic processes.

You will find Open Studios in almost every type of location from custom built studios to private homes, garden sheds, cafes, galleries and more besides, some on high streets and industrial estates and others with staggering views of coast and countryside. Not all our members have accessible studios and will set up in other spaces or get together at group venues. The art and craft is just as varied and interesting, created by artists with a wide variety of experience and inspiration. Part of the fun of North East Open Studios is uncovering artwork you’ll fall in love with in unexpected places.  

What all will have in common is the wonderful welcome.

Our yellow signs are a familiar sight across the North East every September, guiding visitors to our artists’ doors. The NEOS book, App and this website shows the opening dates and times for each venue during NEOS and are a great resource to find local artists and makers all year round
