The ‘Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire’ would like to invite you to reach out to the universe together with our 120 artists.

Good art, and there is plenty of it around us, is balm for your soul, it lifts your spirit - sometimes reaching the universe. This is definitely true when you look for example at one of Wassily Kandinsky’s great ‘Compositions’ or if you listen to a Beethoven Symphony. Music – reaching out into the universe – will be provided by the Newbury Spring Festival. This is guaranteed. We as visual artists around Newbury try to develop truthful, all-encompassing and far reaching art in your neighbourhood and you might discover uplifting objects that provoke your thoughts and fill your heart with joy just around the corner.

To see a selection of the work of all our artists, please, come to our main exhibition ‘INSIGHT’ at the newly constructed “The Base”. More of our work is also shown in Satellite exhibitions throughout May at Spring Festival concert venues and other venues around West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

Please, look out for an ‘Open Studios Directory’ of Artists at all Spring Festival events. Keep it as a guide to visiting studios in May, and even joining in the creativity yourself by enrolling on one of the free hands-on workshops listed towards the back. Use the ‘OS Directory’ too, as a valuable contact point with artists all year round, so the next time you need a unique wedding present or family portrait, you know who to call. Newbury Spring Festival, ’Insight’ and Open Studios welcome you with open arms.
