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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
