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.

Jazz Green is currently exhibiting some small artworks in a new exhibition entitled ‘Little Gems’ at Wingfield Barns in Suffolk, running in conjunction with the popular International Mini-Prints exhibition.
‘Little House’ by Jazz Green, mixed media card collage and painting
A favourite collage, ‘Little House‘, previously exhibited at the Artworks exhibition, is included in this special exhibition, which celebrates the colourful world of small art, a perfect accompaniment to the international mini-prints on show in the adjacent gallery.
‘Little Gems’ includes artists and associates from The Harleston & Waveney Art Trail Collective (HWAT). The exhibition includes paintings, prints, mosaics and textiles. Wingfield Barns is located in the heart of rural Suffolk, and this exhibition runs from 12 August to 11 September 2016. Visit the Wingfield Barns website for more details on the venue and opening times. Both exhibitions are free admission.
Little Gems / International MiniPrints 2016
Friday 12 August – Sunday 11 September 2017
Open 11am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday only
Jazz Green is currently exhibiting new work in Cley 16: In Norfolk Now, an annual exhibition of contemporary art in the beautiful setting of St Margaret’s church in Cley-next-the-Sea in north Norfolk. Additional artworks selected for Cley 16 are located at Cley Windmill Shop, Crabpot Bookshop and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre. There is also a programme of events, including creative workshops, musical concerts, curator talks and seminars.
Cley 16: In Norfolk Now is open daily 10am to 5.30pm, 7 July – 7 August 2016.
Cley 16 is organised by The North Norfolk exhibition Project (NNEP). The NNEP was established in 2000 to develop opportunities for innovative and contemporary art in North Norfolk. The NNEP is now widely regarded for its summer exhibitions of contemporary art, originally at Salthouse from 2001-2011, moving to Cley in 2012. Each year a different curator is chosen to select artists from an advertised ‘Open Call’. The shortlisted artists meet the curator at the Church in the new year to discuss plans and ideas for the exhibition. In 2016 Hugh Pilkington, artist, curator and award-winning architect, selected seventy three artists from two hundred artist applications, both a record number of applicants and shortlisted artists for this renowned regional exhibition.
From the Cley 16: In Norfolk Now curator, Hugh Pilkington:
The works demonstrate a wide range of practice from pure abstraction to representation: the abstracted landscape to the photographic; the sculptural – small works, maquettes for larger works, and floor-based pieces; and a group of artists working with fabric and stitch in the chancel of the church. There are installations and interventions, and site-specific work on the beach and around the church. We are pleased to include that remarkable organisation, Barrington Farm, whose members are showing work in the church and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitors Centre. For the first time the Fine Art MA course at the University of the Arts in Norwich are participating as a group and the students have been using the exhibition as a live art project.
