Announcing Spring Exhibitions

We have three fabulous exhibitions coming to beloved@thebarn in March, April and May.

Swan by Sarah Flanagan, part of her ‘anima’ exhibition in March

March 1 – 31
“anima” by Sarah Flanagan
Sarah’s artworks explore the soul and emotions of wildlife. The exhibition supports four charities: Saving Baby Squirrels (UK), Hedgelina’s Home for Hogs (UK), Tigers4Ever (UK) and The Centre for Great Apes (USA)

watercolour of Stonehenge by Michael Payne, from his exhibition Scenes of Southwell and Beyond

April 4 – 28
Scenes of Southwell and Beyond by Michael Payne
Following his successful debut exhibition in 2017 at Southwell Minster, this is a series of recent watercolours. Now in his 80s Michael still has a passion for capturing the variety and beauty of architectural features, even when the ‘architecture’ might be Stonehenge.

May 2 – 29
Celebrating Open Studios ~ various artists
A collection of artworks and crafts from the artists and creators around Southwell and Upton, who are opening their studios on May 26 – 28 as part of Open Studios Notts. Visit the exhibition and then be inspired to visit the artists on their open weekend.

We’ll be sharing more about the artists and their work in the coming weeks. Open Studios Notts runs throughout May and June.

A little preview of beloved@thebarn

This is a fabulous wee video which gives you a flavour of what to expect when you visit beloved@thebarn. Plans are currently afoot for a schedule of workshops with our tutor-in-residence, Sarah Flannagan; for exhibitions of local artists’ work and maybe artists from afar too; for Open Studios in May; and regular talks and workshops with visiting and exhibiting artists and hopefully antiques experts too.

Keep popping back here and keep an eye on beloved@thebarn on Facebook for the latest happenings. You can also join our mailing list to be first in the know.
