Black Swan Arts Open 2022, 15 July - 11 September. Open for entries 1 April

Black Swan Arts Open 2022
Until 11 September

The Art Open 2022 runs for 8 full weeks, from 17 July to 11 September and with over 190 works to view, it is probably worth planning to come at least twice. This year’s show features cutting-edge work from established art practitioners through to avant-garde young graduates artists from Frome and from far-away. The eclectic and wonderful works of art have been created by 153 talented artists chosen from over 1000 entries.

The exhibition has been put together by an extraordinary and committed team of volunteers and together we have produced a show of which we are very proud. Every piece is for sale, with a top price set at £1,000 to encourage collectors and first-time buyers to snap up works they love and investments for the future. To find out more about each artist, you can view the collection in our online shop.

Lucinda Burgess, On Repetition
Long Gallery
4 June – 3 July
Preview: Friday 3 June, 6-8pm

‘On Repetition’ incorporates works in steel, charred wood and glass as well as more sculptural works using Indian Khadi paper.

Lucinda’s primary focus in ‘On Repetition’ is materiality. She is particularly drawn to its natural, often delicate and always changeable character. Each material is chosen for the degree to which it can transform. It may be highly reflective such as glass or graphite, or capable of undergoing radical visual transformation – for example, polished steel to rust.
