This year Test Valley Arts Foundation is participating in 'Hampshire Open Studios' from 17 to 26 August.
The Chapel Arts Studios, in the grounds of St Marys Church in Andover, will be open daily 11am to 4pm, or by arrangement.
Artists exhibiting include David Dixon - the artist in residence - Elle Ford, Di Peisley, Deborrah Skinner and Tom Mortimer.
After guests were welcomed to a private viewing by the Chairman, Michael Widen, the Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Janet Whiteley, was presented with a further generous donation of £1,000 to Test Valley Arts Foundation by Bryan and Diana Beggs, authors of THE CHURCHES OF TEST VALLEY - 'A photographic and historical odyssey' - which is sold in aid of the Foundation.
The Leader of Hampshire County Council, Roy Perry thanked Bryan Beggs for the donation.
"It was very generous of Bryan and Diana Beggs to donate the proceeds of their very successful book to Chapel Arts. They have already helped the hospices that serve Test Valley by donating proceeds of earlier works, and Test Valley Arts is very lucky to have such a generous sponsor".
