ARTWORKS Exhibition 2018: Meet the Artists – Daily art presentations

The popular ‘Meet the Artist’ series of daily demos and artist presentations return to Artworks in 2018. A different artist sets up a mini art studio each day to share their artwork and art processes. Other artists will be working at the sales desk or in the Artworks’ Ivy café, so there are numerous opportunities to talk to the artists during the Artworks exhibition.

Below is the MTA schedule to help you plan your visit to Artworks in September 2018. The artists will be working 10.30am and 4.30pm (with a short break for lunch) – these art presentations are informal and there is no need to book ahead. Follow us on Twitter @ARTWORKS_east for daily news and updates.
