Run by a dedicated team of volunteers and headed by Chair Annette Petch, Open Up Sheffield is one of the biggest and most successful open studio events outside London. With no event last year, Open Up Sheffield 2021 is taking a new direction, and instead of being held over two weekends, it's taking place as an online event throughout the whole of May.

Each artist has their own dedicated page which can be accessed via the Open Up Sheffield website and features photos of their artwork, along with information about the artist, virtual studio demonstrations and artwork tours, contact details, and information about whether the artist is open to visits by appointment.

All featured artist pages will be available on the Open Up Sheffield website for up to a year for people to access and browse at their leisure.

Open Up Sheffield is a free event and prides itself on being family-friendly, so much so that it is now a validated Children’s University Learning Destination, meaning that children can complete an art activity in their own time to earn credits and gain awards and certificates.

This year’s Open Up Sheffield event is dedicated to Paul Schatzberger from Walkley, who sadly died of kidney cancer in December 2020. Paul was an Open Up Sheffield artist for many years, an inspirational former Sheffield GP, a talented photographer and an accomplished musician, making a strong and valuable contribution to the life of the city.
