Jane Bain is an artist and printmaker based in Wimbledon, London. Her work is an eclectic and playful mix of birds, sea life, fruit and memories, inspired by her garden, travels, adventures and the years spent living in London and the Far East.

She studied art and design at Wimbledon School of Art and the London College of Printing, graduating in graphic design. Jane exhibits regularly at the Wimbledon Art Fair and this year showed at The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park.

ARTWORKS 21st Annual Exhibition – Final Day Sunday 10th October 2021 – it’s not too late to visit!

Tomorrow, Sunday 10th October 2021 is the final day of ARTWORKS 21st Annual Exhibition!

The last two weeks have flown by and we have been much heartened by everyone who has visited the exhibition in these unsettled times & we thank you for your support.

We are open tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am to 5pm. However, a visit before 2pm is advised to enjoy the exhibition in its entirety. A browse through each artist’s ‘browser rack’ is recommended in addition to the Artworks shop for small artworks & art cards – unique & original gifts for friends & loved ones.


We hope you have enjoyed the addition of five new guest artists this year – Louise Chapman, Antonia Hockton, Iona Howard, Evelyn Polk and Laurie Rudling – who were all originally selected in early 2020 and stayed with us after last year’s exhibition was cancelled – their artwork has undoubtedly contributed to the vitality & verve of this year’s exhibition.

Just a reminder, ARTWORKS is at the splendid Blackthorpe Barn in Rougham, Suffolk, IP30 9HZ. Follow the yellow AA signs from Junction 45 of the A14, or use SatNav IP30 9HZ. The exhibition venue Blackthorpe Barn is on ground level with easy access, free parking for all visitors.
