New artists for 2021
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. In 2019 the registration fee for an Accredited Artist to be included in the Open Studios WBNH Directory of Artists and on this website was £105.
To register your interest in joining the scheme and applying for Accreditation, please complete this application form and return it to us before 5pm on Friday 14th August 2020.
All applicants will, in August 2020, be required to send in a current CV, an artistic statement and photos of recent works.
