Pop-Up Art Weekend 2020

7th March 2020 - 8th March 2020

Pop-Up Art Weekend – 7 & 8 March 2020

Come and experience some of the very best art that local artists have to offer at the Pop-Up Art Weekend 2020.  The exhibition showcases a wide mix of art, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery and more.

ARTIST REGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED

Thank you to all of the artists who have registered.

Submissions will be discussed by the organising committee and artists will be contacted to advise if they have been successful or not by the end of November 2019. The successful artists will receive an artist information pack in the post which will include everything you need to know about the exhibition.

The exhibition is open to the public on Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 March. We also hold a private preview evening on Friday 6 March (this is by invitation only).

We ask our artists to spend as much time as they can at the event and be available to steward for one session during the exhibition.  Visitors enjoy meeting the artists and your presence certainly helps promote sales of your work.

If you are selected to exhibit, there will be a £10 registration fee. There is a 33% commission on all works sold which goes directly to support the Chilterns MS Centre charity.  Some artists have been exceptionally generous in previous years and offered to donate items.

If you have any questions please email organisers@popupartweekend.org.uk or call 01296 823040.

The event is free to attend and proceeds from the sale of each piece go to the Chilterns MS Centre.

Opening Times:

Saturday 7 March: 10am to 5pm

Sunday 8 March: 10:30am to 4pm

Food and refreshments will be available to purchase from our Cafe.

Venue:

The event takes place at the Chilterns MS Centre.  Limited free parking is available at the Centre.

This annual event showcases the very best from painters, sculptors, jewellers, ceramicists and other artists from around the Chilterns.  Now in its 15th year, the event has raised almost £120,000.  As a result, the Centre has been able to provide an incredible 3,420 hours of physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, oxygen treatment, occupational and complementary therapies to people in the local community, and their families, living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Each year the Centre is transformed into an art exhibition for the weekend, where you can browse and purchase every piece.   And you can watch demonstrations from some of the artists or enjoy lunch and refreshments from the cafe too.  Rumsey’s Chocolatier in Wendover will be providing some of the delicious cakes on offer too!

The event is kindly sponsored by Micheal Anthony for the third year running.  Without the support of local businesses, we can’t run fantastic events like this.
