Here at the Artworks blog we thought we would share a few pictures of our Artworks shop at Blackthorpe Barn (further details of the main Artworks exhibition are below).

The Artworks shop is always popular with visitors, offering up small delights & serendipitous finds, often artwork direct from the studios of Artworks artists and not previously exhibited.

The Artworks shop stocks small paintings, unframed prints and drawings, collage, sculptural artworks including ceramics, metalwork, glass and papier maché, together with a wonderful variety of handmade artist cards, greetings cards and artist postcards.

Read more about setting up and managing the Artworks shop from Gillian Crossley-Holland, a founder artist member of Artworks.

Most of the Artworks artists exhibiting in the Artworks exhibition also have a small selection of their work in the Artworks shop. Artists who are taking a sabbatical year out also contribute artwork to the Artworks shop.
You will find all styles and genres of art on display, from abstract to figurative, with all work in the shop available to be purchased and taken away on the same day of purchase. It is rather like an organised artist’s open studio set-up, comprised of many artists work on display. We accept cash and debit card payments on all purchases.
Together with the Artworks Café, the Artworks shop provides a most relaxing & informal atmosphere to browse all things art, from postcards (all at 50p!) to original paintings, handcrafted prints and small affordable sculptures.
The Artworks exhibition is open daily 10am to 5pm, from 7th – 29th September 2013. You can read more about all the Artworks artists here (or see the left sidebar for direct links to individual artists).
