Old Chapel filled with colour
Eleven local artists and craftspeople have taken up residence in a charming old converted chapel at Westridge, Highclere, and filled it to the rafters with paintings, photography, silks, glass, ceramics and sculptures.
Local group Made in the Hood are hosting the exhibition as part of the Hampshire Open Studios programme,
Paintings by Tessa Kirby, Jane Vince and Pearl Hailstone fill the walls over two storeys, alongside landscape photography by Simon Ball and brightly coloured silks by Helen Mortimer. 3D artists provide interest in the middle of the rooms with animal sculptures by Pat Clarke & Helen Williams, fused glass by Julie Smith, ceramics by Teresa Munn and functional tableware by Tom Paine and Roelofs & Rubens.
"Sharing the exhibition space at Westridge gives more people the opportunity to join Open Studios, and between us we can offer demonstrations, small gift items and cards as well as the larger display pieces".
The free exhibition runs daily from 10.30 – 4.30 until Monday
