Workspaces for Fine Artists

HMS was set up in 2007 to provide 18 "wet & dirty" affordable spaces by artist Jackie Berridge. Situated just off junction 25 of the M1, within the conservation area of Long Eaton, HMS provides a creative environment where artists can develop their practice. Currently there are a mix of artists from a wide range of backgrounds - from those who have recently graduated to more experienced artists exhibiting internationally, including sculptors, painters, photographers and video artists. The studios also benefit from an exhibition area of 20 linear metres which allows artists to showcase their work. Viewing the work is by appointment. Email for details or ph: 07891 262 202

HMS benefits from a 99yr lease which offers long term security. We would like to thank Erewash Borough Council & Derby University for their support in setting up a graduate residency at HMS. Also lottery funding from the Arts Council of £5000 towards upgrading the electrics has been very much appreciated.
