Hampshire Open Studios – NOW ON!

Our takeover of the Dovetail Centre for Hampshire Studios 2022 is now on.

The first weekend of our Open Studios at the Dovetail Centre, adjacent to the Methodist Church, is over.

On Saturday morning at 10 am, fifteen artists set up their own version of their studio around the edges and in the centre of the hall, awaiting the first visitors on the HOS trail.

We are listed alongside eight individual Chandlers Ford artists in the HOS guide, so we hope to attract plenty of visitors to see our set-up as part of their tour of the area.

There is also a table of art for sale by our much-missed colleague, Sheila Lockyer, thanks to her husband’s generosity. Proceeds from this will be going to the Southampton Hospitals Charity.

Changing displays

Some artists will be there all week, some only for a day. 39 artist members are taking part in all. It’s an ever-changing scene, with different types of artwork on display and being created in front of you.

From Tuesday the Dovetail Cafe will be open in the morning, so you can have a refresher and a little something to eat to sustain you on your tour! (Other facilities are available within walking distance).

Our Studio closes on Sunday at 4 pm., and the whole Hampshire Open Studios experience for 2022 finishes on Bank Holiday Monday. Just enough time for our artists to get to see others in their studios!
