This year’s ArtWorks Open has been scheduled to run throughout the E17 Art Trail. The show, now in it’s third year, is growing in reputation as a showcase for painters, printmakers and photographers. The exhibition is selected by artists who have proven track records both as practicing artists, in the field of education and as cultural innovators. This year’s panel is Graham Crowley, former Professor of Painting, Royal College of Art and Kiera Bennett, a founder member of the Rockwell Project.
