This annual event offers the visitor the opportunity to interact with individual artists and artisans, who live and work in Cyprus, in their own studios. Visitors are encouraged to study our website featuring detailed information as well as MAPS to assist in locating each studio or work-space. Each participant features a general map to their area on their individual entries.
This year studios are open from 11 to 20 October, inclusive, between 11.00 and 17.00 each day. Individual participants elected specific days to be open to the public – please look at the individual entries to avoid disappointment.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE! Gallery open times differ from the open studios open times - please check the individual artist's entry on the website and in the catalogue.
Entrance is free and visitors are under no obligation to buy. And don’t forget to enter the competition: see the entry form under PRIZE DRAW. This year we offer free accommodation on a Greek island AND a second prize of free art lessons! An entry form is available in the catalogue, downloadable from the website and also available at each participating studio and work-space – just ask for one and have it signed by four individual artists at four different venues. Many of the participants undertake commissions – please consult with them direct.
Banners bearing the distinctive orange splash will be displayed near the entrance to each open studio. Should you require specific information, please contact the studio or artist direct – you will be assisted.

The artists and artisans include sculptors, potters, painters, glass workers, jewellers and many more talented people who work in styles from naïve to realistic to abstract and more. They also come from a variety of backgrounds, countries and cultures.
They rely on the visitors to their studios, to make this experience enjoyable and memorable, as visitors travel from mountain villages to bustling cities and on the way, stop off to look at the scenery and enjoy Cyprus hospitality.
This event is funded and promoted by the artists themselves in large measure. The organisers wish to express their gratitude to each participant for sharing their passion with the public.
