Discover artistic talent
Hampshire Cultural Trust is delighted to present the Arts Open Exhibition; a collaborative exhibition coordinated by Ashcroft Arts Centre (Fareham), Forest Arts Centre (New Milton) and West End Centre (Aldershot). The exhibition is a showcase of artwork in all different sizes, mediums and subjects from hobbyists, aspiring and professional artists of all ages, from children to adults.
Not only is this the first year that the exhibition is a collaborative effort between all three arts centres, but it's also the first year the artwork is being displayed online. Once all venue doors re-open the artworks will fill the walls, so you'll be able to get an even closer look if you spot something you like.
Each piece will be labelled with a reference number (e.g. WEC1/FAC20/AAC54 etc.), artist name and price if it is for sale (more information about each piece can be found in the Arts Open Exhibition Catalogue). Prices start from £5. If you would like to purchase a piece, please email one of the following email addresses based on their relevant reference key*:
WEC = West End Centre, Aldershot. Please email
AAC = Ashcroft Arts Centre, Fareham. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
FAC = Forest Arts Centre, New Milton. Please email email@example.com
*Please note that purchased artwork will need to be collected from one of the arts centres once they re-open and after exhibition close date, Saturday 13 February. Postal delivery will not be possible.
People's Choice Award
We're also looking for a People's Choice Award winner this year! Once you have seen the exhibition you can vote for your favorite artwork below or find the link at the bottom of each category page (you'll need to take note of your favourite's reference number). Votes will be collated and the winner will be announced after the exhibition closes on Saturday 13 February 2021.
