Hampshire Open Studios 2022

Chandlers Ford Art Group will be participating in the Hampshire Open Studios event during August.

So far 102 members will be reimagining their ‘studios’ at our event in the Dovetail Centre, from 10.00-4.00pm daily. The hall is situated next to the cafe, which is open mornings Tuesday – Saturday. We hope visitors to the cafe will wander in as well as Open Studios tourists.

Latest meeting

At a meeting on March 16th, our event organiser, Alex P, went through the information on tables, settings, and the support the group can provide by way of screens, labels and so on. He also answered questions, ranging from sales to paint spills. A full set of notes, and a follow-up, have been emailed to HOS participants.

A second HOS meeting will be in the Dovetail Cafe on Monday, 16 May, 7.30-9.30pm.

Contact Alex at cfagspevents@gmail.com with any questions.


We have sent our entry into HOS, and chosen four images to use for the HOS booklet. This is a mockup of how it might look, based on last years brochure – things may change this year.

mock-up of the HOS brochure

The pink portrait is by Sarah Ellerington. The lady in the white dress is by Pat Larkin. The blue abstract, as you may know, is by Barry Fry. The “Dubrovnik Roofs under a Psychedelic Sky” is by Alex. Not sure what he was on when he painted it, but it certainly stands out!

HOS will be providing us with flyers and booklets, plus posters, in due course.
