Current Artists

OpenHand OpenSpace is run by its artists on a voluntary basis.  As a community we share ideas, skills and contacts; and provide constructive criticism, discussion and mutual support.  We look after the Keep and provide public access to it, and organise a programme of exhibitions, talks, practical workshops, open studios and other education events that are open to all.
OHOS artists exhibit locally, nationally and internationally. Most have postgraduate qualifications, with teaching experience and links with primary, secondary or tertiary education.  We maintain links with many other arts organisations, and increasingly with heritage ones, through personal and collective activities.
If you would like to join OHOS please see the Studios and Membership page tab above.
