LAST CHANCE TO VISIT… the final weekend of ARTWORKS 2017

It is the final weekend of ARTWORKS 18th Annual Exhibition at Blackthorpe Barn! Thank you to everyone who has supported Artworks in 2017. If you have not yet visited, we invite you to see the Artworks 2017 exhibition before it closes on Sunday 1st October 2017.

For returning visitors, the last weekend is often a quieter occasion to discover many smaller works of art not easily seen at the bustling, crowded Private View evening (click link to see photos).

It is also an opportunity to discover some unique art-related gifts by established East Anglian artists, either in the Artworks Shop area or in the many browsers of prints and paintings by the wall displays. Every sale from the exhibition, from a postcard to a large painting or sculpture, will support the creative work of our group of artists.

Saturday at ARTWORKS
On Saturday 30th September, one of this year’s guest artistsHazel Bradshaw, will be demonstrating ‘Impractical Pots’, which will be intriguing – pop in to watch some ‘art in action’ – there is no need to book a place and entry is free.

At 3pm on Saturday, the Artworks Prize Draw takes place, hosted by Lucy Lutyens. Always a thrilling occasion, this is a chance to win one of thirty original artworks, all generously donated by the artists in Artworks. The prize draw tickets are £2 each. Monies raised from the Artworks Prize Draw will fund next year’s Artists in Schools workshops, and we also donate a proportion of funds raised to a charity – this year we voted to support Teenage Cancer Trust.

Sunday at ARTWORKS
If you plan to visit ARTWORKS on Sunday (the last day), arrive before 2pm to allow plenty of time to see the whole exhibition. From 3pm on the last day of Artworks, Blackthorpe Barn can get busy as art buyers begin to arrive to collect their purchased artworks. You will probably meet some of the exhibiting artists at this time as we prepare to take down the exhibition.

Also on Sunday, Ruth McCabe is the day’s demonstration artist, sharing her distinctive painting processes & techniques with watercolour, all at the demonstration table in the thatched barn, from 10.30am to 4pm. The image below is of Ruth’s new series of watercolours in this year’s exhibition.

Lastly, the Artworks Ivy Café is open on Saturday and Sunday for scrumptious homemade cakes, scones and shortbread, pots of tea and brewed coffee. For the more health-conscious, we also have herbal teas and fresh fruit on offer.

It is a relaxing space, a little café situated at the end of the long thatched barn, a place to meet up with friends or read through the Artworks catalogue. The Artworks Ivy Café also has a selection of small paintings for sale on the walls.

Entry to the Artworks exhibition is free, and our colour exhibition catalogue is also free!

Do not miss this last chance to view our annual art exhibition – we believe it’s our best year yet, and from the feedback we have received so far, many visitors agree!

Ruth’s work in oils and on canvas are most often a response to the East Suffolk landscape, and are either energetic and textured, or worked into smooth flowing abstract forms.
