Hampshire Open Studios 2023

Saturday 19 Aug – Sunday 27 Aug – 10am-4pm Daily

CFAG will be holding a Hampshire Open Studios (HOS) event in August in the larger meeting room beside the Dovetail Cafe, at the Chandlers Ford Methodist Church. If you don’t know what Hampshire Open Studios is – click here

We encourage members who do not normally take part in the event to be involved, supported by the group. We have a wide range of artists, from professionals who really want to get their work on display, to absolute beginners struggling with courage! This could be a really fun event! 

Members are hiring a table for a day, or more. You may share a table, the cost of which will advised shortly. There will be about sixteen tables available per day. This will be a great opportunity to get to know other members. Allocation of tables and collection of fees is handled by the Treasurer, and the event will be subsidised by group funds. 

This is an Open Studio event, and not an exhibition. The Summer exhibition takes place in the Church Hall concucurrently.

  • This is an opportunity for members to engage with visitors, as well as having examples of their work displayed on their tables.
  • A sketchbook is a great talking point.
  • A good opening question is always ‘Do you paint?’
  • It would be nice if members were sketching or painting, but that is not essential.

Work may be for sale, but Chandlers Ford Art Group (CFAG) is not involved in any transactions. This will be strictly between the customer and member. There will be no commission taken by the group on sales made.
