Upcoming Events

22nd + 23rd July 2023 - Open Studios 2023!

Open Studios

22nd + 23rd July 2023

We hope you enjoyed visting our biggest ever Bute Studio Trail on the weekend of 22nd/23rd July 2023. As artists we very much appreciated your visits and interest in our work. Thank you!


Our next studio trail will take place in July 2024 but until then you can see more details of our artists on this site and in the 2023 brochure.  

Visiting the studios on our Trail is a fantastic way to see the island, with venues on the east, west and south coasts as well as several in the main town of Rothesay. Many are within walking distance of the ferry point and you can hire bikes on the island or take the red tour bus which will drop you off close to venue locations. You can, of course, also drive around.


There is so much talent on our small island and there is something for everyone!

Getting to Bute

Bute is serviced by two ferries which depart the mainland from Wemyss Bay and Colintraive. 

We are grateful to Mount Stuart for their continuing support of IBAC and the Open Studio event.


The group has been kindly supported by Mount Stuart for the past seven years and you will find work from some of our artists on sale at this stunning historic house.
