HERE'S THE SHORELY GUIDE TO THE ARTISTS FROM TORBAY AND SOUTH DEVON WHO ARE TAKING PART IN THIS YEARS DEVON OPEN STUDIOS.           Yellow arrows adorn Devon at this time of year, guiding their followers through towns, villages, coast and countryside to open studio locations. The experience is best described as a self-led tour with intimate artist meet and greets, often in their paint-splattered studios, but sometimes in their eclectic homes too.  This access into their private working space is rare and often packed full of storytelling - their lives, the inspiration and the process. You'll have the opportunity to admire, browse and buy affordable paintings, prints, photography,  furniture, sculpture, ceramics and even jewellery, textiles and fashion.  The beauty of Devon Open Studios is that you can dip in for the odd hour and sample perhaps just one or two artists on your doorstep, or you can make a day of it, grab a map and take a grand tour of your top picks.  We've created a handy Google map below to guide your journey, with listings of the artists taking part in Torbay plus two must-haves in Totnes too. You can also download the full guide from  Devon Open Studios  which lists every artist in South Devon and takes you further afield to Mid and North Devon too. Follow the art.
