Hampshire Open Studios 2018

Pop Up Art Exhibitions Lymington and New Forest

For 10 days,from Saturday 18 to Monday 27 August, we have carte blanche to wander through 160 art venues through Hampshire.  It is a MAJOR art trail – and not for the faint hearted.  You will definitely need your GPS!hampshire open studios 2018

But it is an amazing, wonderful and heart warming trail. For 9 days artists in Hampshire open their studio doors to the public, to share their passion, their delight, their creativity and their love of their ar. 

For 10 days between Saturday 18 and Monday (Bank Holiday) 27 August 2018


 It's a kind of "pop up" art exhibition which is not to be missed!  It runs from Saturday 18 to Monday 27 August at various venues near Lymington and throughout the New Forest too.

Most of the venues are open 10 am - 5 pm but some of the private houses may have slightly different opening times.
Hampshire Open Studios is an annual event, organised by the artists themselves to highlight their work in the most inspirational and personal way possible.  Better than markets, fairs, exhibition centres – this is a chance to see the work and its creator, to talk to them and discuss whatever issues you wish.  Just visiting the different environments is an adventure in itself.

Some venues have a group of artists sharing their work, others are individual.  In the brochure and on the website are details as to the work of the artist, a brief biography of the artist / groups of artists and details of how to reach their studio.  

Follow the pink direction arrows, bunting and anything else that may be pink! 

For Lymington alone there are 34 different studios and many of these venues are shared by more than one artist, sometimes 4-5!  So plentiful and wondrous works to see, view, touch and discuss with the artist(s) who will usually be present.  


Kick off with Art at the Pub this weekend and coincide with the annual Beer Festival at the Turfcutters Arms!
