The Mini Artworks wall is a visual feast for the eyes, on display throughout the duration of the Artworks exhibition. The Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw is an established annual event at the Artworks exhibition and it provides funding for Artworks outreach work with schools, with a proportion of the draw proceeds going to charity.

The Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw is so-named in honour of the artist Janette Place, an enthusiastic member of Artworks, always full of good ideas, who initiated the first prize draw in 2004. Sadly, she died in 2005, so the Annual Mini Artworks Prize Draw is now a lasting tribute in recognition of her contribution to the success of Artworks.

The Annual Artworks Prize Draw takes place on the last Saturday of the Artworks exhibition. This year it will be held on Saturday 1st October 2011 at 4pm. Every year Artworks chooses a different charity to benefit from our prize draw. In 2010, we supported the East Anglia’s Childrens’ Hospices’ Tree House Appeal.

In 2011, we are supporting the Bradfield Green Oak Centre project of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust who are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. They are designing and building an innovative new education centre at Bradfield Woods. The building is being constructed from green oak harvested from Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s‘ nature reserves as part of their conservation management. Work is well underway – see some progress photos on the Bradfield Green Oak Centre’s blog.
