Artworks News: Artworks 2020

A Message from our Chair, Gillian Crossley-Holland:

This autumn’s Artworks exhibition 2020 has been cancelled in response to Coronavirus.

December afternoon, Thelnetham fen, by Gillian Crossley Holland

Artworks is held in September and I trust, by then, our choices will be much improved. However, so much work and planning usually goes towards our exhibition during these summer months, that we felt it would be wiser to start afresh in 2021 when, hopefully, all restrictions will have been lifted.

The cancellation of our exhibition is disappointing for all of us, but particularly so for some of this year’s guest artists who have long wanted to exhibit with the Artworks group at the venue of Blackthorpe Barn. We therefore decided that the kindest thing would be to offer all current guest artists a second year with Artworks.

I am therefore pleased to welcome: Louise Chapman, Iona Howard, Evelyn Polk and Laurie Rudling – who are all 2D artists; and Jacquelyn Hindle, Antonia Hockton and Jim Racine, who are 3D artists.

I am also pleased to welcome Zoe Rubens back for a return visit, and delighted to say that Nicola Coe is now a full member of Artworks and she is keen to make the group as ecologically sound as possible.

Helen Dougall and Janet French would have been on sabbatical in 2020, but as we are now all on sabbatical this year it might be difficult to tell.

As artists we are all still working one way or another, but without forthcoming exhibitions and deadlines, many of us are using this strange lacuna to think, reflect and experiment – and like many others – to spend a great deal of time gardening!

We will still be sharing our latest works and progress on the Artworks blog and the Artworks Instagram @ARTWORKSEAST, so please follow us.

I look forward to meeting all our visitors in 2021 when Artworks will be holding its 21st exhibition.

Artworks News: Artworks celebrates its 20th year in 2019

In 2019 we say a fond farewell to Doug Patterson and Liz Waugh McManus, both of whom have been working on international projects.

We welcome back Jazz Green who took sabbatical from Artworks in 2018. Anne Paton and Elaine Nason are taking a year out in 2019.

Hazel Bradshaw and Julia Groves are now full members of Artworks. They join Chris Hann and Sue Caddy who became members in 2017.

At the beginning of each year, we invite professional artists (by open call, more details here) to join us as guest exhibiting artists. This year we welcome back last year’s guest artists Nicola Coe, Elizabeth Cooke, Fiona Fawcett and Zoe Rubens, joined by two new guest artists Judith Glover and Corrin Tulk.

With much new art to share, we hope you will visit in 2019. If you would like to attend the exclusive preview evening on Friday 20th September 2019, please contact us via the CONTACT page.
