The Buxton Spa Art Prize 2020
The Online Gallery - Latest News
The Buxton Spa Art Prize Online Gallery was launched in April as a response to so many artists, events and venues being affected by lockdown. We wanted to provide artists with a platform from which to exhibit and sell work produced during this period. We have been thrilled with the the huge variety of work submitted - not always being able to paint en plein air has clearly not stifled the creativity out there!
As we approach June and restrictions are very gradually being relaxed, it seems that more of you are able to get out and about to paint, which is great news.
Our lockdown gallery was always intended to be a temporary exhibition space and sadly, we do not have the resources to continue indefinitely. We have therefore made the decision to close for entries at the end of May. The website will still be available for people to enjoy the galleries and purchase work.
The last date for submissions will be Sunday 31st May and we will update the gallery for the final time on Monday 1st June.

Come Rain or Shine!
Looking ahead, we are still hoping to run our en plein air event in September. Those of you who took part last year know that it certainly did rain - but it was good fun!
Do keep an eye on the website as we will update it with details later in the summer.
In the meantime, the dates for your diary are Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September.
