Welcome to Open Studios 2023

In my role as President of Open Studios I am constantly reminded of the depth and breadth of creative talent that lies in this corner of England. Open Studios brings a wider public together with those who enhance all our lives by their skill and creativity. Open Studios also helps bring new talent to the fore through our extraordinary three week exhibition and by drawing the public into the places where the artists’ work their magic.

The highlight of Open Studios 2023 will be our INSIGHT exhibition at The Base in New Greenham Park from 6-29 May. This event, and the chance to visit artists in their studios, means we ‘mere mortals’ can get to know and understand more the people of real and enduring talent close to where we live.

I do hope to see you in this exciting year for Open Studios and the artists it supports.
