The Mayor of Test Valley, Mrs Pat West, officially declared Test Valley Open Art 2003 open when she arrived at the end of a specially arranged cavalcade of Ferrari's. Visitors enjoyed the opportunity to look around Project Workshops at the diverse variety of visual arts and sculpture, together with the dedicated marquee that will be displaying crafts, jewellery and artefacts.
The jazz trio "Just 4 Jazz" provided light entertainment for the occasion.
"Each year, this event gets bigger and better. Last year, we had Harley Davidsons, this year Ferraris. I don't know what Richard Atkinson-Willes will lay on next year."
The local artists based at Project Workshops displayed their latest works - see photos.
