2024 Events

Creative Trail

All Year Round

The Creative Trail was introduced in 2023 following a consultation where artists asked for more support throughout the year. The concept was to support galleries and artist studios that are open throughout the year, where our artists exhibit their work. The Creative Trail introduce visitors not only to the creative community but also to the places within Perthshire from where our members take their inspiration. 

Summer Show

Saturday 6 July to Saturday 27 July

An exhibition of our members work which will be held this year in Perth Civic Hall at the end of the High Street in Perth. Introduced in 2023 our first exhibition was held at Birnam Arts, where over 70 of our artists exhibited their work. We’re expecting more artists to take part this year.

Open Studios Festival

Saturday 31 August to Sunday 8 September

Artists can choose to open their home studios, independent studios or specially chosen locations. In 2024, we are returning to the nine day event of previous years although artists can chose which days they are open. Perth & Kinross is a huge area so we’ve broken down the area into manageable routes. You will however be able to search on artist name, media or place depending on your own preferences.

Festival Showcase

Saturday 24 August to Sunday 8 September

Our sister exhibition for anyone participating in the Open Studio Festival to showcase work in a single location allowing visitors to the event a chance to view the art and choose which studios they will visit during the nine days of open studios. We start the Showcase a week ahead of the Festival to give everyone time to plan their days out! The Festival showcase is held at the Barn Gallery, The Bield, Blackruthven.
