What is Open Studios?
Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire was set up in 1988 by the late Pat Eastop MBE as a non-profit organisation, run entirely by unpaid volunteers, to celebrate the diversity of visual arts available within the local community. They strive to create a dialogue between artists and the community by encouraging members of the public to visit artists’ studios.
Every artist who takes part in Open Studios has been required to gain accreditation to the scheme which is vital in maintaining the high standards of the creative work on view.
Why am I a member of Open Studios?
I am always looking to find like minded individuals who cherish creativity and exude artistry in whatever they do. As an artist who is newly embracing their talent, I wanted to surround myself with inspirational people. I applied on the off chance, not really expecting to be accepted but that was not the case and I am now one member of 120 strong. Open Studios allows me to broaden my artistic scope and promote myself in a myriad of ways.
