An open studios event in the city


Artist Jayne SandysRent­on offers an open-studios event on October 30 and October 31 both days from 10am until 4pm. Her studio is Nutshell House, Lavant, Chichester.

From November 1 to 5, she will be available by appointmen­t only (contact 0781710900­6 or Jayne@ JayneSandy­sRenton. com) and then open again November 6 and 7, 10am until 4pm.

“The open studio exhibition covers a period from just pre-lockdown to present day (November 2019 to October 2021),” Jayne says.

“Having taken a year or so out to really focus on a new body of work, Covid hit and lockdown extended that period.

“During that time I took on a mentor with a group in London called Turps Banana which took my work in a new direction, moving from dark brooding landscapes to layered, colourful, up-close images looking through nature.

“I then had a couple of online exhibition­s, one of which was an all-female show with Glyndebour­ne earlier this year.

“It was amazing to be invited to show alongside such amazing artists when Covid made it impossible to exhibit live, but nothing beats seeing paintings in the flesh.”
