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. Registration is now closed. For more information see our Open Studios page.
It is with regret that we have had to cancel Open Studios 2021.
We will provide information regarding Open Studios 2022 in due course.

The popular annual Young KAOS competition is open to young artists aged 16-19 years of age. The competition opens online at the beginning of each year. Winners and Highly Commended artworks are exhibited on the Kingston Artist Open Studios Young KAOS website page with art material voucher prizes being awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place.

Our members are also active throughout the year, taking part in exhibitions and events both nationally and internationally.
