Wysing’s Annual Open Weekend returns this year with a range of contributions including a gallery exhibition, performances, readings and a screening programme, alongside eleven artists working from Wysing opening their studios; a rare treat.We also have a range of sculpture across our 11 acre site, which includes walks and picnic areas, and we will be operating a café over the weekend. Free and all welcome. 

Annual Open Weekend

Artists work from studios every day at Wysing. Come and have a look inside to see the range of work that is developed at Wysing. Opening their studios this year are:

Jack Cornell, Bettina Furnée, Alison Gibb, Naomi Harwin, Josepa Munoz, Florian Roithmayr, Emma Smith, Rob Smith, Soheila Sokhanvari, Ash Summers and Caroline Wendling

The studio artists have also contributed to a screening programme that will be playing throughout the weekend, interspersed by readings and performance.

The Open Weekend also marks the end of this year's Leverhulme Arts Scholars Summer School; the scholars will have been working at Wysing over the previous six weeks, taking part in workshops and mentoring sessions with artists who have been in-residence and worked at Wysing. For this event the scholars will be exhibiting the new work they have created at Wysing, in a gallery exhibition and at locations around the site. Some of the scholars will be preseting live performances throughout the two days.

The artists participating in our summer school this year are: Chris Alton, Calum Bowden, Gordon Douglas, Henry Driver, George Harding, Emily Hawes, Steph Li, Helen Savage, Sophia Simensky, Ben Tupper, Jules Varnedoe, Nathaniel Whitfield


During the weekend Lucy Reynolds, who has been working with our organisation-in-residence, Electra, will present a new version of her work 'The Feminist Chorus', which will be performed live by The Leverhulme Scholars from the windows of the Wysing farmhouse.

Plus we recently launched two new site works that form part of our growing collection of outdoor sculpture that can be visited  including by artists Rupert Norfolk, Laure Prouvost, Joanna Rajkowska, The Grantchester Pottery and Bedwyr Williams. The full list of works is here.
