It is with great pleasure that the Open Studios WBNH Committee welcomes you to the INSIGHT 2024 exhibition staged in the prestigious gallery at The Base, Greenham from Saturday 4 to Monday 27 May 2024.
This is the home of our scheme and we thank the team at The Base and the Corn Exchange for all their support and help throughout the year. This exhibition space offers our artists a superb opportunity to showcase their work and where traditionally the public begin their open studios experience. This is our flagship exhibition and will again house the work of over one hundred artists.
Our 2024 curators Arty Pumpkin, Claire Terry and Jon Townsin are all regular artists with our scheme. We call our exhibition INSIGHT because it provides our visitors with a taster to help them choose the artists they want to visit. You can meet painters, textile artists, ceramicists, jewellers, sculptors, mixed media artists, printmakers, and artists who work in wood, stone and glass.
Our stewards and gallery staff are there to help you engage with the display, answer your questions and help should you wish to make a purchase. You can find information about the artists' studios you wish to visit in this website, including contact details and opening times and which studios are near each other.
In 2024, our young visitors can also enter our INSIGHT Competition: We are inviting all under 18 visitors to use the worksheet provided at the exhibition (and it will be downloadable below in due course) to enter and submit response-artwork in our Competition Post Box at the gallery as well as post an image on our Instagram page #oswbnh2024. #insight2024atthebase The winner will get a pack of postcards of their artwork printed as a prize, plus publicity in the local news.
Below you can see a video of our exhibition last year, always a pleasure to see how the work of all our artists comes together beautifully for this showcase exhibition.
