Inspired by the BAT Collection

In July, Craft Arena was proud to host an exhibition of work from the Basildon Arts Trust collection which is held in trust for the people of Basildon by the Foundation of Essex Arts (of which I am a trustee).

We are holding a competition to run alongside the BAT exhibition and would like you to use the pictures as inspiration for your own work. Choose your favourite from the works which were displayed at the Alchemy Gallery at Craft Arena in July 2018, then produce a piece of work based on your choice using any technique and medium you wish. The work will be displayed in the Alchemy Gallery in November 2019 and there will be a prize of a Craft Arena Gift Voucher for the winner, to be chosen by the Trustees of TFEA. The deadline for entries has been extended until Tuesday 30th October.
