Studio KIND. Summer Open 2024
24th August - 21st September 2024
Private View: Friday 23rd August 18:00-20:00
Open Wednesdays to Saturdays, 12:00-17:00

Studio KIND. is inviting artists in/around Devon to be part of our second Summer Open, as a celebration of the variety of work coming out of our region. At a time when tourism is high in North Devon, the exhibition is an exciting coming together of artists from across the county and a chance for visitors to see the breadth of work being made by artists at all stages of their careers. This year the Summer Open will be taking place in our new home, The Corn Store, part of the historic Pannier Market in the centre of the hustle and bustle of North Devon's main town, Barnstaple

Studio KIND. is a not-for-profit arts space and the Summer Open exhibition helps us in our fundraising efforts, allowing us to continue with our commitment to making art accessible to everyone, supporting artists, working with our community and showcasing work we believe in. The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of free art activities for children and families run by local artists. 

The exhibition will run from Saturday 24th August to Saturday 21st September. Our gallery opening hours are 12:00-17:00 Wednesdays to Saturdays, with classes and workshops taking place in the gallery from Sundays to Tuesdays. 

Application process

There is no theme and we are looking forward to having a varied and exciting exhibition that explores a range of themes and ideas. All art forms will be considered, including but not limited to drawing, sculpture, painting, printmaking, moving image, sound, photography, textiles, and digital. Due to the limitations of the space we are not able to accept large-scale sculpture and installation work. 

It is free to apply. If selected, there is a £20 participation fee which goes towards our running costs for putting on the exhibition. The participation fee remains the same, regardless of the number of artworks selected. Artists are able to submit up to three pieces to be considered. 

Work doesn’t have to be for sale, but if you would like to offer your work for sale Studio KIND. will process the payments and take 30% commission. 

Please make a note of delivery and collection times as these can't be changed. We are not able to receive/return work by courier, but we encourage lift sharing and will help facilitate this where possible. We are unable to store packaging material.
