Summer Exhibition – Last Few Days!

Amazing that our Summer Exhibition for 2022 is nearly over. It ends on Wednesday afternoon (10 August) around 3 pm, with a very quick break down and collection of unsold works. If you have not visited yet, you still have time, though.

So Many Sales

We’ve had so many sales you’d think that there would be nothing left for collection. But artists have brought in their reserve pieces to fill in the spaces, and Barry’s artful displays have continued to make an excellent display of them all.

As of Sunday evening, the totals are as follows:

  • We have sold 31 framed, canvas or 3D works
  • 22 artists have sold at least one work
  • 31 artists have sold a total of 680 single cards or packs!
  • 13 artists have sold 20 browser items

All exhibits must be handed in on Monday 25th July, with the Exhibition open from 10 am till 4 pm on Tuesday 26th July through to Wednesday 10th August.

Visiting the Exhibition

Visitors are most welcome – and you do not have to pay to enter if you are just coming to the exhibition or the cafe! But the gardens are lovely, and well worth spending time, wandering and relaxing.

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.
