For Artists – About SEOS

For decades now, South East Open Studios has been one of the finest open studios events in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK. Promoted by a beautifully-produced booklet and advertised in the South East, the event is a draw for creative people of all ages. Hundreds of artists open their work spaces to exhibit their art, and for many it is the premier opportunity to bring out into the light the art created throughout the year, a chance to meet the public, talk to fellow artists and to sell their work.
