Open 10-5 daily
With a reputation for its excellent standard of fresh contemporary work, ARTWORKS’ artists, many award-winning, have been busy creating new paintings, collages, prints and sculptures across a broad artistic spectrum. Constance Stubbs, in her inimitable way, has been busy creating intimate pictures with bold and radiant textures. Chris Gamble has experimented with yet more new ideas of figurative expression. Gillian Crossley-Holland has created effervescent sea scapes in oil pastel inspired by spending hours and hours alone on the Norfolk coast while Mike Ashley has tackled unexpected and complex arrangements of plough patterns. New artist to artworks, Genista Dunham has sculpted quite amazing papier-mâché vessels through a synergising process of accretion of printed papers and erasure through painting, soaking and abrasion. These descriptions only skim the surface of what will be on offer in this year’s show – to get a full flavour why not come along and see for yourself?
To further enhance your visit, there will be daily time-tabled MEET OUR ARTISTS presentations providing insights into various aspects of painting, printmaking and sculpture by a variety of different artworks’ artists. And new this year, there is a special Printmaking Day on Sunday 15th September, programmed sessions to explore the art of printmaking in the Studio Room at the barn, a wonderful opportunity to embark on a voyage of artistic discovery.
Now an annual event, the ever-popular Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw will, once again, offer thirty stunning prizes of mounted 6”x6” original works of art specially created by artworks’ artists. The proceeds fund our work with schools with a proportion going to to a local charity. The draw will take place at the Barn at 4 pm on Saturday 28 September.
There is also a well-stocked SHOP selling a good range of framed and mounted original prints, paintings, smaller 3D works and an excellent selection of our artists’ cards.
Coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks available in the artworks café throughout the exhibition.
