Jamaica Street Studios occupies a special place in the heart of Bristol and in the hearts of Bristolians. The annual Open Studios event is a highlight of Bristol’s cultural calendar and an essential part of the art-year.

The Studios has a 21 year history, with a 40 strong group of artists occupying the building and a long list of illustrious alumni. Current studio holders include established artists and emerging talent, all working side by side in an infectiously successful creative environment.

The event kicks off with a private view on Friday night and the whole Studio building is open all weekend too, for a chance to see work by all our studio holders, to meet and talk with our artists and buy work direct from them. JSA Open Studios is the perfect time to meet local artists, designers and makers and find out about their work.

The weekend’s finale is a mini-canvas auction, held to raise money for the Studios, a not-for-profit organisation. Each studio holder contributes a work of art towards the auction, and this is your chance to own a masterpiece.
