Lymington Open Studios Welcome You In!

Hampshire Open Studios have opened their doors to the public at over 200 venues across the region this week, with many based in Lymington.


But wherever you are in Hampshire, you are not far from an artist or  gallery supporting this regional event of dynamic and original visual arts.


The art community in Hampshire use this unique 'art trail' to showcase their work to the public, and this offers a wonderful opportunity to make a day of meeting artists in their studios, to view a vast array of work and disciplines, and to purchase original pieces from participating studios and galleries. Local artists, who some of you may be familiar with include Jane Puckering, Andrew Halliday, Tim Nott, Shirley Davis (milliner extraordinaire), Jenny Sutton RBSA, Melvyn Gates, Helen Talbot, Eileen Sey, Kate Danby, Shaun Stevens, Liz Pannett, Julia name but a few.


The examples of works exhibited offers a wide choice from painting, jewellery, pottery and ceramics, glasswork, needlework, felting and much more. There really is something for everyone! Some of the artists are offering talks and demonstrations, so do check the directory for details.


In Lymington's own Coastal Gallery, many of the Hampshire Open Studio artists from the area have examples of their work on display, including works by acclaimed landscape artist Pete Gilbert, who had tirelessly worked as the Creative Director of Hampshire Open Studios for the past 5 years. Lesley Meaker took the baton this year and has already welcomed a further 60 artists to the portfolio. 


The Hampshire Open Studios has produced a comprehensive directory of all artists who have opened their studios, and the galleries who are exhibiting artists work, with accompanying maps to indicate the best route for your expedition! Additionally, there are pink arrow markers on the roadside to let the visitor know they have arrived at their destination.


Directories are free to pick up at many points across the region, alternatively you can access the online directory, click here:


Hampshire Artists look forward to welcoming you!
