Anglesey Arts Weeks: Open Studios and Galleries 2019

Welcome to our sixteenth Open Studios and Galleries Weeks, Saturday 13th – Sunday 28th April 2019, when painters, sculptors, photographers, film-makers, printmakers, installation artists and craftworkers open their studios to visitors.

Delighted to say that the digital copy of the Guide is now available and can be downloaded here. Hard copies are now available from artists’ studios, galleries and key locations on the Island.

Set out below are the 2019 participating artists.

Often the Anglesey weather is fine and sunny at Easter so here’s hoping! You can always combine studio visits to the beach, or go for a walk either on your own, or book onto one of our popular free ones. There are plenty of excellent places to stay on the Island so make a break of it if you are from away, or if living locally, find out what happens in the studio on your doorstep.
The Open Studios and Galleries Weeks event attracts visitors from all over the UK. It is the biggest art event held on the Island. This year over 150 artists’ work is displayed in 52 locations including 6 participating galleries. You may find anything from cards, prints and original works of art to buy; see anything from works in progress to exhibitions of contemporary art. Venues include studios, chapels, barns, sheds, galleries and artists’ homes. You have the chance to meet and talk with the artist, often over a cup of tea, and gain a unique glimpse of the artistic process. Don’t feel shy about visiting; all the artists are only opening their studios as they are keen to meet you. As mentioned, we are offering four free art and landscape walks. Further details of these are in the Events Section.
The event is spread over the two full weeks of Easter with some artists opening all the time and others for only a few days. To make it easier for you to plan, the studio opening hours are always 11am – 5pm on the days they are open. Also the A5 colour Guide will have a folding cover which includes a map that helps you to plan your visits and navigate the Island. It also includes details of our walking tours, details of which can also be found in the Events section.
The Guide will be widely distributed, and a PDF copy, along with additions and corrections can be downloaded. In the Guide, alongside each artist entry, is a calendar marked with their opening days and in the back section of the Guide a daily schedule of all studios open on each day which enables you to plan a route to visit those open. 


With the help of Menai Holiday Cottages we are working to promote the work of artists and galleries throughout the year. Therefore, in addition to the opening hours shown for Open Studios, some are open all year (see their website or contact for their regular opening hours), and others throughout the year by prior appointment.

If you enjoy your visit then come back in the autumn to discover the performing arts talent on the Island or sign up yourself, or your Group for the Anglesey Performing Arts Weeks (APAW) (19 October – 3 November 2019). A taste of what is to come is shown under the Performing Arts Weeks section, and includes the 5th SeeMôr film festival. For a copy of the Guide or if you have any questions contact the Ucheldre Centre 01407 763361, or box-office@ucheldre.org
