April sees the start of our 2021 partnership with Suffolk Open Studios. We are are busy selecting winners for 4 special awards for their first online exhibition, and look forward to announcing the winners at the launch event next Friday.
We were delighted to hear that Suffolk artist, Arabella Marshall, has launched a fundraising campaign on our behalf. If you are able, we’d be really grateful for your support as we continue to bring creativity to our communities at this challenging time, including three new artist residencies in Eye, Ipswich and Halesworth.
Warm wishes from us all for a creative and fulfilling spring,
Alex & Hayley, Co-Directors

Local artist launches Suffolk Artlink Fundraising Campaign
Arabella Marshall is a Suffolk-based glass artist whose work can currently be seen at RSPB Minsmere nature reserve.
In recognition of the work Suffolk Artlink does to use art to inspire our communities, Arabella has teamed up with friend, and Suffolk Artlink Trustee, Kate Axon, to launch a fundraising campaign in aid of our work.
New artist residencies to build creative communities
Following in the footsteps of Make, Do & Friends, we’re continuing on our mission to tackle loneliness through creativity through three place-based artist residencies across Suffolk.
Our artists will each head up their own creative initiative in Eye, Ipswich and Halesworth, with the aim of getting the community involved, creative and connected in the coming months.
