Welcome to Artwey – a community of artists promoting visual arts in our neighbourhood and beyond through our website, exhibitions, open studios and workshops.
We have over 80 members who work in an exciting and beautiful range of media, painting: – acrylic, oil and watercolour, textiles: – batik, felting, soft sculpture, embroidery and applique, photography, printing, jewellery, enamelling, pottery and driftwood sculpting.
We have no selection process to join and so we welcome a range of ages and abilities from well-established professional artists to those who are just starting out exhibiting their work.
We seek out and provide venues to exhibit our members’ artwork, organise exhibitions within and outside our locality, pop-up exhibitions and organise open studios events. We get together to socialise about once a month. There are opportunities to join a group painting outside during the warmer months. Individual members provide workshops for training in specific media.
Venues we use for exhibitions are:
