There are two weekends left to visit the beautiful gardens at Greys Court near Henley, to wander through the grounds and view an interesting and varied collection of figurative and non figurative sculpture placed in and around the gardens. 26 different artists, all from the Oxford Sculptors Group, one of them local to Caversham, John Nicholls. http://www.nichollssculptor.co.uk.
Last day of Open Studios at Studio 21, venue 54 in the West Berkshire and North Hampshire Open Studios 2017 catalogue. Thank you to those people who visited yesterday and made it such a worthwhile effort. If you missed the Here Here ! show in the Turbine Hall at the Riverside museum, which was beautifully curated by Ingrid Jenson, today is the last opportunity for a while, to see Michael Norcross's paintings here at Studio 21. Also if you want to make a day of visiting Artists studios in Reading, why not visit venue 56, OpenHand OpenSpace at Brock Keep, 571 Oxford Road. www.ohos.org.uk.
An exhibition is taking place at what's becoming an important Reading Exhibition venue, for local artists in the Turbine House, at the Riverside Museum next to the Bell and Dragon. http://thefriends.org.uk/pastevent/private-view-reading-its-rivers-the-turbine-house-8th-september-2016
10 local artists are all taking part in the Open Studios scheme running across west Berkshire and North hampshire. An opportunity to go and see some Fine Art and then visit the Bell and Dragon or do it the other way round. Also an opportunity to pick up a free catalogue featuring all the artists in Open Studios 2017, in particular the local artists who live and work in Reading, are opening their studios at times and dates listed in the catalogue. http://www.open-studios.org.uk/
Don't miss this double opportunity to see exciting new work
by ten artists from Reading and West Berkshire, plus a wonderful
historic venue in Reading. The Turbine House is inspiring to artists
and visitors because of its situation on the River Kennet, with water
rushing past and beneath, and and excellent light and views through its
many windows. As a former Victorian pumping station, its interior still
has interesting relics of its earlier industrial life.#Studio 21

Thank you to all who attended the recent #Reading Contemporary Art
Show and came to visit me on my stand. It was a great success and a
surprisingly pleasant experience for me. I was assured, by visitors
attending, that they thoroughly enjoyed it too. So this is an experience
I will seriously consider repeating next year!
For those who didn't make it to this event to receive a personal
invitation to my Open Studios event on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th
May 11 a.m. -5 p.m. at : #Studio 21 #Caversham where the work on
display will be more extensive than the space of a small stand permits,
and work not exhibited at RCAF will be on display along with some new
work not previously shown.
Some new paintings will also be on display from 4-13th at the joint
exhibition at the Turbine Hall, Blake's Lock Museum, otherwise known as
the Riverside Museum, curated by Ingrid Jensen from Open Hand Studios.
On the Saturday evening I hope this work will move from there to my Open
Studio event unless previously sold. Some of the paintings relate
directly to the theme of the #festivalofthedark#outrideranthems project which is being promoted locally.
Also don't forget to visit the #Insight Gallery at Greenham Common
for the #North Hampshire and West Berkshire Open Studios 2017 Exhibition
which displays a work from majority of all this years participating
