18th June to 3rd July
Local artists and makers will again be taking part in this annual event and this year there will be lots to see in and around Rugby. All the latest information is on the Warwickshire Open Studios website. Venues will have different opening days and times, so do check the website or brochure before you travel.
The Rugby Summer Art Weeks map (kindly created by Eric Gaskell) shows a lot of what is on locally. There are plenty of other venues on the borders of “Rugby area” so do check the full Summer Art Weeks map to make sure you don’t miss our neighbours.
It’s great to have more venues, and lots of artists, in Rugby town centre itself this year. The surrounding villages are definitely worth visiting too, and I’ve stretched our list down to Southam’s surrounding villages too, as we have RA&M members at these venues – not least Artists at the Sheep Dip who have relocated to Harbury from Princethorpe. The links below will take you directly to the venue page in the online flip book.
