Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire welcomes applications for accreditation from professional artists who have a strong commitment to the visual arts, craft or design, including film, architecture, fashion, textiles, digital media and installation.
There are over 300 accredited artists in the scheme; they come from a variety of backgrounds. Most have undertaken art school or university training, but not everyone is in this category. The main requirement is a strong commitment to a particular art form or forms, a working space suitable to show good practice, use of materials, sketch books, sources of inspiration and a sound body of work.
To register your interest in joining the scheme, please complete this application form and return it to us. All applicants will, in August 2017, be required to send in a current CV, an artistic statement, a description of their studio and its location, together with original examples of their work.
[to complete the application form you will need to use the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC app. This free application is available here to download and install.]
