Welcome to Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire
Open Studios will take place from 4 to 27 May 2024.
In 2024 we welcome 24 new artists to the scheme amongst the 135 artists in 89 venues. We encourage you to seek these new artists out and find out what they do.
Our visitor numbers, participating artists and sales are increasing every year. The artistic community of our region is thriving thanks to you. We hope you will visit even more studios this year and spread the word to your friends and family to make a day out of it.
In the website you can find information about the artists taking part in our 2024 Open Studios and view their portfolios and details. Some also run workshops and other events throughout the year and you can view those on the workshop area.
During the month of May local artists open their studios and exhibitions free of charge to coincide with our showcase exhibition INSIGHT at the Base in Greenham. Artists are happy to talk about their process with visitors. We work to make entering any art space a comfortable experience, to encourage and promote accessibility to art and artists. Works are normally for sale but there is no obligation to buy, the focus is on enjoying your visit.
Alongside the open studios the showcase exhibition -INSIGHT- takes place at The Base, Greenham.
In the website you can find art venues to visit, peruse the artist profiles or search the map to find artists showing near your location.
Along your visits, you can enter the Open Studios Prize Draw to buy some Art.
