The Buxton Spa Art Prize 2020
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!
The Gallery is now closed for entries but do please take a look at the fabulous artwork submitted by our artists. We are proud to exhibit a wide range of work from beginners to experienced artists and, of course, our young artists.
Artwork is displayed in five gallery rooms and is arranged in order of submission starting with the very first entries in Room One. The young artists have their very own gallery.
Head to the Gallery page and enjoy!
Important News Come Rain or Shine
Earlier in the year we had thought that things would be getting back to normal by now. Sadly, normality is still a long way off and it will be a while before we are able to host any kind of exhibition with the resources available to us.
Therefore the decision has been made to postpone our Come Rain or Shine event, due to be held at the end of September.
Social distancing is clearly not a problem whilst you are all out and about painting but it would be impossible to keep far enough apart in our small exhibition venue, even if we were still allowed to hire the space which is looking increasingly unlikely.
We are very disappointed by this as the event only began last year and was great fun, despite the appalling weather! Our hope now is to hold the event next year, possibly sometime before the Autumn.
