Katie Millard exhibits widely in the East Anglian region and is well known for her expressive and spontaneous watercolours of the wild and unspoilt places of north Norfolk, a coastal region she frequently visits. More recently, she has begun exploring bold elements of abstraction in her work. Katie says: I work very quickly, straight onto thick watercolour paper with only a brush and the flow of the paint to dictate the outcome.

Today at Artworks: Watercolour Trees with Katie Millard!

Today, Tuesday 17 September 2013, Artworks artist Katie Millard will be demonstrating creative watercolour techniques in the Artworks exhibition.
Katie Millard : Painting Trees in Watercolour


Katie says she is most inspired by North Norfolk, struck by the unspoilt nature of the area, the magnificent skies and windswept beaches: 

Seeing the sand being lifted and swirling in the sky by the vagaries of the weather, fascinates me. Watching rain approaching and the way it affects the sea and the landscape I find awe inspiring.
See Katie Millard demonstrating how to paint trees in watercolours, in the main gallery today, from 10.15 am – 4.30 pm.
Stay tuned to the Artworks blog for daily Artworks exhibition news and updates, as a different artist will be demonstrating in the Artworks exhibition every day.

Ten Artworks artists in Ad Libitum Art Exhibition

More exhibition news on the Artworks blog!

Ten Artworks artists (past & present) have paintings currently on show at the stunning venue, The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds this November. The exhibition is called Ad Libitum, in reference to artists having a ‘free hand’ in their work.

All the work in the exhibition is new to Artworks, having not been exhibited in any previous Artworks exhibitions. The light & space of the upstairs gallery is a wonderful backdrop to everyone’s work – we hope you will visit if you are in the area!

The nine Artworks artists featured in this show are: Mike Ashley, Gillian Crossley-Holland, Helen Dougall, Helen Du Feu, Janet French, Jazz Green, Eleonora Knowland, Marianne Koby-Johnson, Katie Millard and Gabrielle Stoddart.

Some exhibition photographs will be posted shortly. The exhibition, Ad Libitum, runs from 29th October to 28th November 2012 (full details below).

Artworks Prize Draw: Modern Abstractions

As mentioned in a previous post, the Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw is a popular feature in the annual Artworks exhibition. The mini artworks are all original works at just 6″ x 6″ square. They are all presented in standard card mounts for easy framing.

Here at the Artworks blog, we thought it would be a great idea to publish a series of exclusive ‘previews’ of all thirty mini artworks in the Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw 2011 (as previously mentioned here) in the run up to the Artworks exhibition.

Today, we have selected six mini artworks to show you, with a modern, abstract or minimalist style – subtle or strong dimensions in colour, simple lines and structures. The six original mini works featured here are by: Jazz GreenAnthony JonesEleonora KnowlandMac McCaughan, Katie Millard and Eileen Revett. We hope you enjoy this selection – and remember, the prize draw tickets are on sale throughout the Artworks exhibition at just £2 each!

The Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw takes place on Saturday 1st October 2011 at 4pm. The Prize Draw tickets are £2 each, on sale throughout the duration of the Artworks exhibition – just enquire at the reception desk. All the mini artworks are original works of art, not reproductions!
The Janette Place Mini Artworks Prize Draw provides funding for Artworks work with local schools, with a proportion of the draw proceeds going to charity. In 2011 we are supporting the Bradfield Green Oak Centre project run by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust.

The Suffolk Wildlife Trust are constructing an innovative new education centre at the site of Bradfield Woods in Suffolk, using green oak harvested from  Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s own nature reserves as part of their conservation management programme. You can see some photos of the project on the Bradfield Green Oak Centre’s blog.

Next time, we will focus on some different mini artworks, on the theme of travel and the landscape, each artist’s work capturing a unique sense of time and place.

The Artworks 12th annual art exhibition runs from 10 September – 2 October 2011, open 10am – 5pm daily, at Blackthorpe Barn, Rougham, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk IP30 9JG.

Entry to the Artworks exhibition is free, there is ample parking with full disability access (two wheelchairs are also available if required). There will also be the Artworks Cafe alongside the very popular Artworks Gallery Shop, selling small paintings, original prints & drawings, ceramics, sculpture and glass, in addition to a wonderful selection of artists greetings cards. We hope you will enjoy your visit!
