It with a great sadness that I write to confirm that ArtistsWorkhouse will permanently close on 30th November 2019.
Sadly the increased costs associated with the running of the gallery and studio space have meant that it is no longer financially viable to continue.
We opened in November 2015 with the newspaper headline ‘ArtistsWorkhouse creates a Storm’, the journalist was of course referring to severe weather conditions but he did create an appropriate metaphor for the energy and excitement that had built, the anticipation of what we might achieve. Subsequently, we have enjoyed a fabulous 4 years continuously building an extensive artist’s community and celebrated many successes.
ArtistsWorkhouse is not defined by the plaque on the wall bearing its name or the bricks and mortar of the building, its identity lies within the people who have been part of it. AW has thrived through the hard work and commitment of the people involved in it and I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has been connected with and supported us over the years.
It has been a pleasure to have welcomed you, worked alongside you, shared ideas and inspiration with you and brought many exciting plans to fruition, I do sincerely hope that we will do so again at some point in the future.
My sincere thanks and very best wishes,
