Be inspired by a diverse exhibition of accredited WBNH Open Studio artists, showcasing contemporary art in North Hampshire.

Glass, sculpture, print, textiles, traditional crafts and painting all feature. Get a flavour of what you could see in their studios and find out when each artist will be open to the public by picking up a free Directory of Artists.

Also featuring in the exhibition is some amazing work from Queen Mary's College students, who have been inspired by the highly skilled Open Studio artist Valentina Tikhonova. They are the results of Project INSPIRE, an upcycling educational project created by Valentina and facilitated by Sharon Perris and Hampshire Cultural Trust. By using simple tote bags they have produced some incredible designs. Don't miss it!

Please note the museum and gallery are closed on Good Friday 19 April 2019.
