Open 4 - 13 November at the Nutshell gallery, 15 Kings Walk, Winchester SO23 8AF.
Marking the 10th anniversary of The Yard Studios in Wharf Hill Winchester and the 10th anniversay of 10 Days Winchester, the exhibition presents work from Yard artists and tells a story through a photographic account of 10 days in the Laundry and a very successful ‘Yard and Metre’ collaboration between artists and poets.
The yard studios were set up to give emerging artists affordable studio space. Since then the Yard has flourished and is now home to a strong team ofartists with a broad range of skills.
10 Days began with The Yard studios when artist Saira Ahmed presented the yard with an opportunity to create an exhibition in the Old Hyde Laundry.
Through the generosity of the owner Brian Hampson, the hard work of Saira, Chris Carter, Trish Bould, Michael Weller and over 100 artists, poets, musicians and performers, it went on to inspire a sequence of hugely successful contemporary arts events engaging tourists and visitors across the city.
