Our Carshalton Artists
Want to be a Carshalton Artist?
We're very proud of the wide selection of artists that we represent, working with paint, print, sculpture, photography, textiles, ceramics and more.
Our artists love to share their skills, techniques and artwork whether it's at public events, workshops, exhibitions or open studios. So here are some images to demonstrate what they do.

We're always amazed at the range of talent in Carshalton! Every year we discover more amazingly creative characters and we're always looking for more!
If you're an artist that lives or works local to Carshalton and are interested in joining us then please read the information below and share what you do with us.
How can I join Carshalton Artists?
It's easy! The first thing is to check out our 'Carshalton Artists' facebook group. Follow us, post your work and chat with us.
This is the best way to introduce yourself, show us what you do and see what we do.
If you're starting out then this is a great way to start sharing your artwork and get feedback or advice. You can chat with our artists and find out about events.
We're a sociable bunch and love to meet and chat. We host Arty Drinks on an ad-hoc basis every couple of months so feel free to email us at email@example.com to introduce yourself and be added to our invite list.
How do I take part in CAOS?
Every year we have an application process for our open studios event (CAOS) when we accept a small number of new artists.
Applications are open 18 Oct- 22 Nov and you'll be able to access the online application form on the CAOS22 page.
Our artist panel will review all applications and notify if you've been successful in December. The criteria that we consider is:
- Do you live or work local to Carshalton? (see boundary info below)
- Do you have an online presence where we can view your work?
- Do you have an established portfolio of work to share with the public?

The CAOS Map
The map below shows the 2 boundaries that we use.
Outer circle boundary-
CAOS applicants must live or work within this boundary area
Purple trail boundary-
Artists located outside this boundary (but within the circle boundary) will be relocated inside the trail boundary.
Please be advised that these boundaries are approximate and locations will be advised the CAOS committee.
Can I join other Carshalton Artist events?
We run several other exhibitions, fairs and workshops during the year with our artists. These are limited in availability so places are given to artists once they've participated in CAOS.
We always get enquiries from new artists wanting to join in and we'd love to increase our event capacity but due to high demand we can usually only accommodate artists that have already taken part in our previous events.
