Over the last 36 years, Art in Action, held at Waterperry Gardens, Oxford, has created a new sort of art show and now attracts around 25,000 visitors. The public comes to Art in Action, not just to see works of art, but to see the art of creating art. Janet and Emma will be working in the Printmaking marquee. For further information please visit www.artinaction.org.uk.

A quick gallery visit to the ARTWORKS shop, take a browse!

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).

Sculptural ceramics by Kate Reynolds

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.

Elaine Nason cards, work by Genista Dunham & Mac MaCaughan

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.

Most artists have prints, paintings or drawings in these browsers

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

Glass by Liz Waugh-McManus, cards by Christine McKechnie

Most Artworks artists exhibiting in the main 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).
