The formation of Chapel Arts Studios
TVAF converted a derelict chapel in St Mary's churchyard into a creative hub for art in Test Valley. It opened in 2009 as Chapel Arts Studios (CAS) and the position of Lead Artist was created to develop the Studios. David Dixon was appointed as program co-ordinator and developed CAS into what it is today. In 2018 CAS became an Arts Council England National Portfolio organisation and is now independent of TVAF, although we continue to work together to nurture creative talent in Test Valley.
