We visited the newly opened Delphine Art Studion in Thame a few weeks ago and we believe it’s such a wonderful asset to the town.
Delphine Art Studio in Thame is under new management, and after a successful launch party back in March the new art café opened this week, its new owner Lisa Norgate-Barnes is on a mission to bring a creative hub to Thame town centre.
Lisa explains “I want art to become more accessible and inclusive, I see Delphine Art Studio as a central hub for local artist to exhibit their work and run workshops as well as having an accessible space for adults and children to use to see the art work and take part in activities. I want the creative hub to be a real asset to the Thame community.’
The hub includes an art café, serving a selection of hot and cold drinks as well as locally made cakes. There is also a studio space that can be rented out by local artists to run groups and masterclasses developing skills in different mediums, whether young, old, amateur or professional.
The exhibition space will feature work by local artists, and this month two artists are exhibiting, Ruth Aslett and Stephanie Fisher. Delphine Art Studio is a member of the Professional Picture Framers Association and their framer has over thirty years’ experience in framing, so once you have chosen your piece, you can also get it framed.
There is also work from the Key Stage One children from Brill Primary School and the older children from Testworth Primary School on display.
‘I wanted the artwork of local children to take part in our exhibitions so that they can see their artwork on the walls alongside local artists and understand that art is for everyone no matter what your age.’
This is a very exciting addition to Thame and I’m sure we will be regular visitors
