Among the EOS artists exhibiting is printmaker and painter Steven Bramble, who will be sharing his talents in different mediums at old chapel Hope Hall in Wonford, Exeter.
The space is currently used as a studio by Naomi Hart who will also be exhibiting there, along with fellow artist Katya Romankevich.
Steven was runner up in last year's South West Academy Open Competition and, alongside his paintings, will be exhibiting prints of people making pots, cooking, playing music, dancing, drawing and reading.
Also taking part in EOS is Royal College of Art graduate Adam Christian Graddon. His work will be on show at Exeter Contemporary Arts Hub in St Thomas, Exeter, which he established as an open-plan working environment for artists, craft practitioners and designers to coexist under one roof.
Adam works with ceramics and mixed media, and is particularly known for his ceramic vases and violins.
Reflecting the diversity of artists is award-winning independent film maker David Salas who runs the Puny Gods monthly film night at Exeter Phoenix where visitors can see his work during EOS.
Taking part in the event for the first time is Devon Artist Network. Established in 2004, the non-profit making organisation initiates a range of projects across the county including the well established Devon Open Studios event that runs annually in September.
To help people locate all the studio venues, a map has been created with suggested walking tours and a barcode you can scan with your mobile phone.
It will transport you directly to the website where you can look at the artists' pages before visiting the studios where the artwork will be on view up close and in real life.
The launch of EOS will be held at Gloss-Art Exeter in Barnfield Crescent, Southernhay, on Thursday March 21, from 6pm to 9pm.
During the evening there will be an auction of postcard-size artworks from all the participating artists starting at 7pm.
