Base wins 'Best Art Space' for 4th year!

We are thrilled to bits to announce that The Base has won 'Best Art Gallery' once again!

Steph Johnson, Gallery Manager at The Base said: "We are over the moon to win the 'Best Art Gallery' award once again - it's incredible to think that we have won this accolade every year since we opened in 2019! It's such an honour to be nominated and voted for by the public, as it confirms to us that what we are doing is working and is truly appreciated. We are a team who strive to keep achieving more and reach more people each year, and this helps continue to give us the drive to do just that!"

We are also so pleased for our colleagues at the Corn Exchange Newbury who won 'Best Theatre/Arts Venue' too. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us both!

The free-to-enter Muddy Awards, organised by lifestyle website Muddy Stilettos, aim to recognise the best independent lifestyle businesses throughout the country. The public response this year was incredible, with 800,000 people around the country voting across the 28 Muddy Stilettos county sites.

Congratulations also go to our Resident Artists...

In addition to the wonderful Muddy Awards news, the team at The Base are also thrilled to announce the safe arrival of Cáit and Mark's baby boy who joined the world at the end of May. Congratulations also go to Ellie, who married Ashley in a beautifully colourful wedding earlier this month. So if you visit our artists’ studios in the next week or so, they might be a little on the quiet side at the moment...!

We hope to see you all soon to enjoy the incredible Kurt Jackson exhibition, River: A 40-Year Project!
