West Berkshire and North Hampshire's Open Studios 2017 might be a few months away but there has already been a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes.


This year I will have work in three different locations!

1. Main studio exhibition

Sadly I can't join Mandee Siegert who I shared with in 2016 for OS2017 as she won't be opening her studio so I have a change of location arranged.

For 2017 I shall be exhibiting with four other artists at the home of Kevin Akhurst in Newtown, Newbury. Kevin is a potter who specialises in functional and decorative stoneware. Also sharing space at Kevin's house will be:

  • Caroline Brown who works with a variety of materials including brush and inks

  • Miggie Bruce who specialises in botanical art

  • Pamela Hardman who will be showing drawings and prints

This location will be where my main exhibition will be and where I will be on the days we are open (see below).

Studio Open Times

At Kevin's home in Newtown we will be open to the public on the following days in May 2017:

Saturday & Sunday 6 & 7, 13 & 14, 20 & 21  11am - 5pm
Monday  8
&15  11am - 8pm

2. As usual I will also have work in the Open Studios main group exhibition called INSIGHT. Here you will be able to see a sample of work from all the artists taking part, about 110 this year.  This is located in the New Greenham Arts Centre on the outskirts of Newbury. It's a great opportunity to see the huge range of art on display throughout Open Studios and decide which artists' studios you may like to visit.

3. This year many of the artists opening their doors in North Hampshire have created a group exhibition - again an opportunity to see a wide range of art in one location and choose which artists' work you might like to see more of. This will be on show in the Willis Museum in Basingstoke.

4. I will also have some work in a group exhibition titled "Aspects Of The Land" which will be on show at the West Berkshire Community Hospital, Thatcham.

All events listed here are free to visit and I'll update this page with more information (such as maps and opening times) as plans fall into place.  The main Open Studios website has now been updated with all the information for 2017.
