Welcome to Open Studios 2022

After a difficult two years I believe that Open Studios 2022 is going to be an even more special experience for people of all ages. I hope you can get the key dates for 2022 in your diary.

The lockdowns we all endured were grim for all of us but they did allow a remarkable flowering of creativity. This year we are welcoming new artists and a breadth of talent that makes me really optimistic for the creative arts in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

The highlight of Open Studios 2022 will be our Insight exhibition at The Base in New Greenham Park from 7th - 29th May. This will be the best year ever for local artists and this exhibition will bring some of their work to together for a very special three weeks. I hope you, like me, are looking forward to an exciting year for the arts across this region.
