Bexhill Artist’s Workspace is a group of artists, designers and craftspeople from Bexhill on Sea and the surrounding area. In normal times we run winter workshops, regular portrait and life drawing groups, summer events including outdoor painting, social events and regular exhibitions, and are dedicated to finding a permanent studio, workshop and exhibition space in the Bexhill area.
We have reopened our ‘Lockdown’ page so that members who have produced work during the lockdown can post it online. All work from 2020 is still on the page and can be viewed by scrolling down.

Summer Event – early notification
Hoping that in a few months we will be able to get out and about to a degree, we are aiming to have our first BAW public exhibition for eighteen months, back in our usual venue of The Studio in the De la Warr Pavilion. Many people are desperate to get out to recharge the batteries and I am optimistic that we could get a good number of visitors, so let’s put on a show!
The exhibition is booked to run from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th July and will take the format – albeit adapted – of the usual displays we have there.
We may well need to have a one way system and have agreed with the DLWP that in that case we can have the usual entrance and a circuit taking visitors out at the rear/disabled access door. This means we will need to reorganise the usual ‘Zig Zag’ display boards to suit a clear pathway through the exhibition, and may possibly have extra craft space. To that end I’m publicising it as an Arts and Crafts Exhibition to encompass the wide range of work we produce.
I’m hoping this exhibition on the horizon will nudge members to get inspired and, I really hope, attract new artists to join us. Many people have used their time creatively over the past year and it’s a great thing to see our work on display and for sale. If you are visiting our website, don’t hesitate to find out more about us and hopefully join our ranks. If you are a member, now’s the time to get artistic.
Full details will be published and sent to all members nearer the time. If you have any queries about the exhibition please contact Steve via the contact page.
Autumn / Winter Exhibition
Our Autumn / Winter online exhibition featuring paintings and craft work by BAW members is now closed. For a while the art and craft works will remain visible on our Exhibition page, linked in the header above.
Many thanks to all who contributed, and to our visitors who, we hope, enjoyed seeing the variety of works that local Bexhill artists and craftspeople have produced. We hope to be back with a ‘bricks and mortar’ exhibition later in 2021.
