Collection Arts Challenge: Participants online gallery

Throughout the last few weeks of lockdown we have been diving into the archives, as part of the online Hampshire Cultural Trust Collection Arts Challenges, to showcase unique objects that we care for across our sites and historic venues. Talented artists of all levels across the county have joined these Zoom sessions each week and have depicted these objects beautifully, so we are delighted to share their creativity in this online gallery.

If these artworks inspire you to get creative, you can join our next term of art challenges by booking your place online at Forest Arts Centre or Ashcroft Arts Centre. The challenges are free and will be taking place every Tuesday 10am - 11am, 20 April - 25 May 2021.
