A RENOWNED ART col­lec­tive is set to host an ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing more than 300 new art­works.

The 19th an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion by Art­works will take place at the 14th cen­tury Black­thorpe Barn in Rougham, Suf­folk.

Fea­tur­ing the work of 30 artists, the ex­hi­bi­tion will give view­ers the chance to look at work pro­duced by the group’s East Anglian mem­bers.

With each artist ex­hibit­ing around 10 new works of art, there will be more than 300 new works on dis­play with a pop-up shop which will host smaller art­works, paint­ings and cards. All works are for sale.

Chair­man of Art­works, Gil­lian Cross­ley-Hol­land, says: “It’s our 19th an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion this au­tumn and it’s easy to be ex­cited by such an achieve­ment. This year, as well as the work of our Art­works mem­bers, we are wel­com­ing many ta­lented guest artists whose work will give the ex­hi­bi­tion a com­pletely new and ex­cit­ing feel.’’

Print­maker Janet French, who cre­ates her works us­ing ma­te­ri­als gath­ered from wood­lands, says: “I am ex­cited to see the de­vel­op­ment in the work of the mem­bers and also the work of this year’s guest artists which brings a fresh dy­namic to the ex­hi­bi­tion.”

El­iz­a­beth Cooke, a sculp­tor who works in steel, wil­low and stone, com­ments: “I am look­ing for­ward to ex­hibit­ing with Art­works again, hav­ing last taken part in 2004. The ex­hi­bi­tion has given me the op­por­tu­nity to work on pieces that have been whirling around in my head for quite a while.”

Sky Por­trait fi­nal­ist, Lyn Ayl­ward, ex­plains: “Much of my work is au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal and in trou­bled times I find my­self turn­ing to my fa­mil­iar paint­brushes and paints to make sense of hard­ship. I have never been afraid to por­tray dif­fi­cult sub­jects in my work; there­fore, my paint­ing on show this year is deeply per­sonal.”

Alfie Car­pen­ter, a mixed me­dia land­scape artist from Suf­folk, adds: “I’m ex­cited to share my vi­sions at this year’s ex­hi­bi­tion and to give my most re­cent work a chance to shine.”

En­trance to the ex­hi­bi­tion is free, there is am­ple park­ing and there will be a cafe serv­ing drinks and home-made cakes dur­ing the show.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open from Satur­day, Septem­ber 15 un­til Sun­day, Septem­ber 30, 10am - 5pm daily at Black­thorpe Barn, Rougham, Bury St Ed­munds, Suf­folk IP30 9HZ.
