ARTWORKS 22nd Annual Exhibition final weekend: Three more days to visit!

Sunday 9th October 2022 is the final day of ARTWORKS 22nd Annual Exhibition at Blackthorpe Barn! We have enjoyed sharing our art with hundreds of visitors & supporters over the last two weeks. However, we have ONE more weekend to experience & enjoy all the art on display! We also have the Artworks Miniworks Prize Draw on Saturday afternoon (more details below).


We hope visitors to ARTWORKS enjoyed the addition of eight guest artists this year: Terry Bryan; Tom Charles; Martin Coe; Nicci Dedman; Simon Farr; Judith Glover; Simon Kimmins; Ann Lee. Their art has added variety & vitality to this year’s exhibition – we hope some of them will join us again next year. See full list of thirty exhibiting artists here.


FINAL WEEKEND: We are open Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Visit before 2pm on Sunday 9th October to enjoy the exhibition in full. A browse through the shop or the ‘browser racks’ for unframed works on paper is highly recommended if your favourite works on the walls or plinths are red-dotted! Art buyers can collect their exhibition purchases from 4pm on Sunday (remember to bring your receipt). We have two teams to assist on the closing day – on the sales desk and in the packing/collection area.
