Plain Arts Programme For 2021 / 2022
Plain Arts regularly hold creative events and exhibitions throughout the year.
These are held as either ‘Plain Arts Events’ organised and run by our own committee members and dedicated
steering groups, or are creative events held in association with others all within Salisbury & the surrounding area.

11th & 18th December
We are delighted to announce that we will be holding our 4th Plain Arts Winter exhibition and Christmas Fayre
in Gallery 4 of Salisbury Library.
We will be flexible about the size of images submitted however our main aim is to provide this opportunity to
as many of the Plain Arts members as possible. We will therefore assess the size of images on application.
WINTER EXHIBITION APPLICATION FORM
The Christmas Fayre will take place in the entrance lobby of the Library on Saturday 11th December
and Saturday 18th December running from 9am to 5pm.
All work will be displayed on a series of tressle tables which members can hire.
Sharing of tables is permitted.
Members must deliver their work no later than 08.30 and be set up by 09.00.
Breakdown and removal of work must be after 5pm and the site to be cleared by 6pm.
As you all know, we had to cancel the 'Art Unmasked' at Fisherton Mill 20th February – 20th March 2021.
We would like to thank you for your time in submitting to the exhibition and hope to revisit this idea in the future.
With the role out of the Covid 19 vaccine programme there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Plain Arts is committed and continuing to plan events as we work through this pandemic with a hope that this, and other exhibitions will still proceed.
Further announcements will be published when available for any re-scheduling.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page, the monthly newsletter and the Plain Arts website for any additional notifications.
Rolling programme of exhibiting opportunities at the Salisbury Medical Centre throught the year.
We have now been organising a rolling programme of exhibitions since the centre opened on the Wilton Road 6 years ago.
The Practice has conducted a number of surveys and they have found how valued and appreciated this project is to both the staff and patients.
It's free to exhibit and the wall spaces are excellent for showing your work to a very large audience.
Given the current circumstances and uncertainties the latest information from the Medical Practice indicates that it is unlikely that the next exhibition
will start again this year. However the situation is changing and we will let you know if we hear any further news.
Exhibiting opportunities at Waterstones Bookshop throughout the year
We have a great working relationship with Waterstones, that wonderful bookshop in Salisbury.
Waterstones keep us informed about exhibiting vacancies which crop up on their front and back staircases.
Exhibiting opportunities at 5 Rivers leisure centre throughout the year
Exhibiting opportunities at Boston Tea Party throughout the year

Venue options for holding Workshops
We have been working lately to try to identify potential venues for you to hold workshops,
its an ongoing project but I have listed below a number of venues that we have visited who have
expressed an interest in linking with Plain Arts members for them to provide the space
and facilities for you to hold workshops on their premises.
The Old House Guest House Wilton Road Salisbury
Very large building in their grounds suitable for workshops or exhibitions
Laverstock Care Home London Rd Salisbury
Keen for someone to hold paid art workshops for their patients
The Manor Barn, Winterbourne Stoke
Fantastic location, very large country house with great facilities and beautiful grounds.
Very keen to develop art workshops
Wilton Shopping Village
This is a really exciting opportunity that we are currently discussing with the centre.
More info to follow soon
We hope to add to these opportunities as time goes on and will keep you informed.
If you are thinking about holding workshops and looking for a venue please contact us
and we will talk through these current possibilities with you.
Other events and opportunities to be published when they become available.
