About KAOS

KAOS: KINGSTON ARTISTS OPEN STUDIOS

We are a voluntary group set up and run by local artists to promote the visual arts in the borough of Kingston upon Thames.

Established in 2010 we are open to artists, sculptors, ceramicists, printmakers, photographers and other crafts people living or working in or around Kingston.

We are currently a self funded group, aiming  to raise the profile of art in the community, support each other and sell our work. We are completely reliant on volunteers but have already made a mark on the visual arts scene in Kingston, with over 20 exhibitions since we started.

As the name suggests our main event is the annual OPEN STUDIOS, which this year will take place on the weekends of June 11/12th and 18/19th. Their are over 70 artists to taking part, showing a wide variety of work.

We also hold regular group exhibitions, which in 2015 included "selfies" at Cass Art, and a taster exhibition in the Old Post Office, Kingston . As well as whole group exhibition members hold smaller selective exhibitions throughout the year. We also have strong links to artists in Kingston's twin town of Oldenburg, Germany and some of us will be taking part in their open studios in September 2016. 

To find out more about who we are and what we do please have a look at our member's pages and news and events.
