Angus Open Studios (AOS) is an association of artists, craftspeople and designer-makers based in Angus, Scotland. Our showcase event takes place each May, when AOS members open their studios to the public. AOS is a voluntarily run, non-profit making organisation dedicated to raising the profile of the creative industries and individuals within the area. Find out more about us here.  

Artists' Directory 2016

Our 2016 artists' directory has just been launched. You can pick up a copy from art galleries, museums, libraries and other venues across Scotland. You can also download a low resolution copy of the directory here.

If you can't wait until the event, don't worry our members are creative all year! Many open regularly or by appointment, attend events around the country and submit work to exhibitions. Visit their pages to find out more.

Why visit us?

Our Open Studios event is a great opportunity to visit our members in their studios.
• Meet the makers and find out about their methods and inspiration.
• Gain a unique insight into their workspaces and an appreciation of what goes into the production of their work.
• Commission an item to be produced uniquely for you.
• Explore the towns, villages and countryside of Angus and see it through the eyes of our members who find it so inspiring.

You can also use the members pages and directory throughout the year to find something special for yourself or to give as a gift.
