Guests arriving to view Chapel Arts studios
The vision was to create Chapel Arts studios as a group of thriving and dynamic incubator artists’ studio spaces drawing on the heritage of the building and the surroundings. Chapel Arts studios provides facilities for professional artists to develop their own careers alongside delivering valuable outreach work to the local community.
Chapel Arts studios provides affordable studio space for up to four visual artists or crafts people to introduce and maintain a vibrant and accessible programme of events which will allow them to develop their own practice alongside community workshops. Other objectives are to engage the local community in the development of an exciting and inspirational venue through a series of artistically led events including temporary exhibitions and to create a small arts hub in partnership with a variety of institutions and organisations in and around Andover.
