Welcome to KAOS
KAOS is a group of professional, semi-professional and experienced artists living and working in the Kingston area.
Our unfunded, voluntary group was set up in 2010 to raise the profile of and broaden access to the visual arts in Kingston. Since then we have built up a diverse membership of artists and makers working out of their own spaces in and around the borough.
Each year we open our studios to the public during two weekends in the summer for the annual Kingston Artists Open Studios.
Our Open Studios Online Catalogue and trail map featuring over 100 artists in 26 venues is now available:
Our members are also active throughout the year, taking part in exhibitions and events both nationally and internationally.
Please see our Events page for more details.
More information about individual members can be found on our Artists page, or via a category search on the Medium page.
The annual Young KAOS competition is open to local artists aged 16-19 years of age. The competition opens at the beginning of December and submissions close on 22 March. Winners will exhibit their work alongside professional artists during Open Studios.
