Artworks 21st Annual Exhibition, Saturday 25th September to Sunday 10th October 2021 at Blackthorpe Barn

Join us for a celebration day on Saturday 25th September, the ‘first day’ of the exhibition. This is an all day ‘open day’ to provide a safe & enjoyable experience for visitors & artists. The artists will be present at different times during the open day. The rural setting of Blackthorpe Barn has ample space to mingle & chat outside as required.

‘Fireworks’ by Zoë Rubens

We welcome back Janet French and Helen Dougall, who were both on a ‘sabbatical’ from Artworks in 2020. Nicola Coe is now a full elected member of Artworks, having been a guest artist in 2018 and 2019.

At the beginning of each year, we invite professional artists (via open call) to join us as guest artists. In 2021 we welcome back guest artist Zoë Rubens, joined by five new guest artists: Louise Chapman painter, Antonia Hockton stone carver, Iona Howard printmaker, Evelyn Polk mixed media artist, and Laurie Rudling printmaker.
