What is ARTBOURNE?
ARTBOURNE is part of the Wellesley arts programme and is a popular biennial art exhibition of contemporary artworks, jewellery & sculpture from nationally acclaimed and emerging artists.
In Year 1 (an even year), ARTBOURNE is a curated exhibition; in Year 2 (an odd year) ARTBOURNE is a month-long artist residency, followed by a residency and student art exhibition.
This year for ARTBOURNE 2018, Wellesley’s Centennial Hall and inner quad will be transformed into a contemporary art & sculpture gallery from Thursday 1 – Sunday 4 November. The aim is to foster established and emerging artists, and to showcase for sale their selected artworks. The artists donate a percentage of their artwork sales to the Wellesley Foundation’s scholarship campaign Promising Futures for Boys .This endowment fund supports boys who would not otherwise be able to experience a Wellesley education because of financial constraint.
Join the artists for ARTBOURNE’s OPENING NIGHT on Thursday 1 November, at 7pm – entry by ticket only, which can be purchased ONLINE HERE.
As part of the 2018 ARTBOURNE exhibition, we are delighted to be including work by our 2017 Artist in Residence talented mixed media artist Richard Adams
