Kennet Turbine House. 4th May - Saturday 13th May . 10am- 6pm. #Studio 21

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/


Reading Artists at the River Kennet, Turbine House. #Studio 21


Here! Here!
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

christmasatstudio21Don'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 artists. 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.

Reading Contemporary Art Show, 2017



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 artists. Michael Norcross.#Studio 21
