We at Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire are always looking for new artists and we welcome new applications for accreditation. Artists who are commited to any of the visual arts, crafts, design or wider media such as film, architecture, fashion, textiles, photography and digital media can apply to join us.
Currently we have over 300 accredited artists in the scheme, from a variety of backgrounds and with a range of disciplines. Many have undertaken art school or university training, but this is not necessary.
The main requirement is a strong commitment to a particular art form or forms, a working space suitable to show good practice, that is to say - your use of materials, sources of inspiration and sketchbooks along with a sound body of work. The Open Studios annual registration fee for an Accredited Artist to have their own entry on this website is now £75.
To register your interest in joining the scheme and applying for Accreditation, please complete the New Artists 2022 Application Form below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. There is no deadline.
All applicants will be required to send in a current CV, an artistic statement and six photos of recent works.
