2018 saw the inaugural Young Artists’ Open providing an opportunity for developing artists from toddlers to 17 year olds. For this year’s exhibition we received 49 entries, all of which will be displayed in Gallery 3 alongside the adult Open exhibition. The exhibition is a feast of colour, featuring landscapes, wildlife, still life and works of imagination in pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. We hope that in time some of these budding artists’ work will appear in the main Open exhibition.
Prizes for each age category (under 7, 7-11, 12-17) have been generously provided by Gordon Young in memory of Ted Marsh the first Chairman of Trustees at St Barbe whose vision and energy helped found the museum you see today.

This exhibition brings together local textile artists working in a variety of different media. From felting to lace-making, weaving, patchwork and collage, we are seeking to highlight the range of work being created by talented local artists.
There will be weaving, spinning or lace-making demonstrations most weekends throughout the exhibition. Visit this website nearer the time for more details.
The works in this exhibition will be available for sale.
