Artists from across the borough have the chance to showcase their work at an open studio festival.

Richmond Council’s annual ARThouse festival promotes creative communities in the borough and last year saw more than 500 people open their doors to the public.

This year’s festival will be the borough’s 19th event and hopes to be bigger and better than before.

Applications to be part of the festival are now open and work will be exhibited over two summer weekends, from June 27 to 19 and July 4 to 6.

Cabinet member for culture Councillor Gareth Evans says: “The ARThouse open studio festival is a wonderful opportunity for creative people to share in the relationship between the artist and their art.

“It explores the same environment and space in which the work was created and is a wonderful way in which residents and visitors to the borough can discover our creative communities.”

Applications will close on Friday, February 28. For information and to download application forms visit
