It feels like Rugby’s artists and makers are blossoming as spring gets into action.

The Alex newsletter is out with news of a solo exhibition by Richard Horsman, First Thursdays with music from Michael Luntley as well as poetry, a gelli printing workshop and The Alex’s arty weekends. See their newsletter or website for more details.

Lots of local artists and makers are through the first round of selection for the Coventry Open. 🎉

Many of our network members belong to other groups and one of those, Rugby Artists Group (RAG), is planning their next exhibition in April, at Floor One Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.

There are lots of opportunities for artistic growth in the area. Rugby Art Gallery and Museum have added adult workshops to their schedule, while their neighbour the Percival Guildhouse is into its spring term with dayschools coming up and summer schools ahead. If you like your learning more informal and experimental you might like to try ArtLab where you can meet in person or virtually with other artists and either bring your own work or experiment with the group in a particular medium. If you prefer to sit back and watch and listen to arty speakers then Rugby and District Art Society might be for you.

Looking ahead to the summer, plans are afoot for Warwickshire Open Studios Summer Art Weeks and this year the area hosts two WOS “Emerge” artists getting support to take part in the event for the first time.
