May 2023

A big thank you to all!

The Derbyshire Open Arts 2023 committee would like to say a huge thank you to all the fantastic artists that took part this year, and to every one of the visitors that came in to any venue. We hope you all enjoyed the event as much as we did and we look forward to welcoming everyone next year. The website remains open, and any artist can be contacted through their page if you regret not buying something that took your eye! 

Misprinted brochures

We apologise to people who are finding brochures with pages missing, and some printed twice. Other than trying to get hold of another brochure from a different place, you can download a brochure on our website from the third big button on the home page. Also, in the artists pages you can filter by location and by genre which may be useful. Hopefully when you get to your first venue they will still have some brochures that you can use from then on while you're out and about.
