A virtual visit to the Artworks Shop!

Welcome back to the Artworks blog! Today, we thought it would be a lovely idea to give our visitors a virtual tour (or taste!) of the small delights in the Artworks Shop!

The Artworks Shop is always a favourite destination for people visiting the main Artworks exhibition at Blackthorpe Barn. All the art currently on display in the Artworks Shop is available for immediate purchase.

Browsers containing original prints, paintings and drawings

One of the most exciting things to do is to riffle through the browsers (shown above) and discover a small work by one of your favourite artists in the main exhibition! Many of these unframed works come straight from the artists’ studios and may have not been exhibited (or even seen!) before.

We are happy to offer some advice on framing should you require it (just ask at the sales desk). Recently discovered in one of the browsers is this charming original linocut print by Elaine Nason, ‘Woman bathing‘.

All the artworks on display on the walls of the Artworks Shop can also be purchased and taken away immediately. Why not treat yourself or a loved one to an original, framed work of art at an affordable price.

Works by Lynn Hutton, Valerie Armstrong, Gill Levin, Gillian Crossley-Holland & Ben Quail

In addition to the many works on paper and small framed paintings for sale, there are also some delightful sculptural pieces offered by the artists Jazz Green, Carol Pask and Virginia Wright. 

Jazz Green’s intriguing papier mache vessels (shown below) have the appearance of ancient stone relics, the pleasing combination of light blue ceramic and grey stone or slate in Carol Pask’s assemblages evoke the colours of the coast and the free-standing glass works by Virginia Wright in translucent greys and browns conjure up walks in the woods.

As usual, there is also a fabulous range of original greetings cards for sale, many of which are printed in small runs and are not available to purchase elsewhere. Shown below are the very popular cards by printmaker Penny Bhadresa.

Prints and cards by Penny Bhadresa
Highly recommended are Katie Millard’s & Eileen Revett’s unique range of artist cards. Katie’s are original watercolour paintings and Eileen’s are handmade woodcut prints, with both ranges perfect for framing to hang on your wall! 
Janet French’s cards feature one of her environmental tree prints, as illustrated below.
Helen Dougall’s colourful collection of cards include her stunning wax batik designs but much reduced in scale. In the Artworks Shop you will discover we have greetings cards to suit all tastes and occasions!
We hope you will enjoy the many delightful works of art on offer in the Artworks shop. The wall display changes as sold works are replaced with new works for sale.

Something worth a closer look is Lynn Hutton’s exquisite porcelain relief sculpture, ‘When Eve met the serpent‘ (shown above and below).

All in all, the Artworks Shop is a most tempting addition to the art in the main Artworks exhibition. 
So, we welcome your visit to the Artworks Shop!

ARTWORKS : Artists making an exhibition of themselves

A not-to-be-missed special evening of artists’ demonstrations, in association with the annual Artworks exhibition at Blackthorpe Barns. This special event is sponsored by The Curwen Press. New to Artworks in 2007, the Artists Making an Exhibition of Themselves evening (AMET for short) was a resounding success.

on Saturday 1st October 2011, from 6pm to 9pm.

AMET is a special, one-off event when some of our Artworks artists set-up mini working studios in front of their work in the Artworks exhibition at Blackthorpe Barn, to demonstrate the media, materials & techniques used in their art, ready to answer any questions that visitors to the exhibition may have about their art.
