ArtWorks Together Exhibition 2021
ArtWorks Together is a new international arts competition which celebrates the work of artists with learning disabilities, autism or both. The work of 9 competition winners, including artwork from the USA, Canada, Portugal and the UK, were exhibited at the local Wentworth Woodhouse from 29th May to 27th June.
ArtWorks is a small arts organisation which specialises in supporting artists with learning disabilities and autism in accessing the art world. An important part of this work is regular exhibitions which demonstrate the talent of these artists to the public equally to non-disabled artists. In response to the initial lockdown, ArtWorks organised the first virtual exhibition of their artists’ work, to maintain this crucial connection to the public. This inspired the conception of ArtWorks Together.
