Artworks 21st Annual Exhibition

As each artist creates their art differently, the content & structure of each MTA day will vary – it may not be practically possible to demonstrate all art techniques. However, it is fabulous opportunity to get an insight into how an artist works.

Other ARTWORKS artists are also present each day to answer any questions, either working at the reception/sales desk or in the Ivy café.

Please find below the schedule for our ‘Meet the Artist’ days at ARTWORKS in 2021:

ARTWORKS: now & next year, a pop-up exhibition at a new venue!

This would have been the closing weekend of the Artworks exhibition in 2020, and this would normally mean a whole year before our next show. However, we have some good news: our next Artworks exhibition (all being well) is not a whole year away but will be opening at Artspace Woodbridge in May 2021.


New Year’s day afternoon by Nicola Coe

This pop-up exhibition – away from our usual venue of Blackthorpe Barn – was originally planned for 2020 as part of Artworks 20th Anniversary celebrations. Now, however, the exhibition at Artspace offers us a wonderful opportunity to gather together, show new work and celebrate the start of Artworks 21st year of exhibitions.


Summer Fireworks by Zoë Rubens

We hope you will find time to appreciate the work of our Artworks artists, either online or in the real world.


Greenwood by Jazz Green

Nicola Coe, Jazz Green & Zoë Rubens are now offering their art for sale online via their own websites and on social media.


Wave 1 by Carol Pask

Other Artworks artists are exhibiting more locally as galleries reopen for business. Carol Pask is currently exhibiting ceramic sculptures at the Quay Gallery at Snape Maltings until 14 October 2020, with Alfie Carpenter’s new exhibition ‘The Tide of All Things’ opening the following week, 15-21 October 2020, at the same venue.

Our artists are still creating, with many sharing glimpses of new work in progress, from Lyn Aylward, Sue Caddy, Valerie Armstrong and Gillian Crossley-Holland – you may also discover new articles about their artwork or exhibitions here on the Artworks blog.

As always, none of our exhibitions would be possible without the many wonderful visitors, supporters, sponsors and guest artists who have enabled Artworks to prosper for the last twenty years.

Our thanks to you for helping us to shape a positive vision for the future success of Artworks as we look forward to our next run of exhibitions.
