OPEN STUDIOS. 2014. West Berkshire & North Hampshire.
Visited the flagship exhibition at New Greenham Arts centre. Insight 2014.
There are over a hundred artists taking part with some wonderful and varied work. My favorite piece of sculpture is the whirlwind of leaves in bronze, by Siobhan Coppinger, it's really beautiful. Also some eye catching paintings by Jill Eislee and Nuala Whales. It really needs more than one visit, there is Studio 8 to visit as well!
The exhibition at Arlington Arts starts on Thursday 15th, called Cover to Cover.
