We are bringing together the Rugby Artists & Makers Network alongside UK Artists. AiTP allows us to bring a selection of artists under one roof, building our sense of community and opportunities to engage the public.
This year we have 5 artists, all venturing into new areas of their media, building on their experience and striving to stretch their skills and what can be achieved within their art medium.
UK Artists was created in 2010 and grew out of a regional online gallery, it has grown to cover both local and wider UK based hand-selected artists. An online gallery to purchase work and exhibitions regularly occur.
Rugby Artists & Makers network began in 2018, a place to support creativity & share knowledge. Opportunities to exhibit began in 2021 and now occur on a regular basis, alongside monthly network meetings and opportunities to showcase within Art at the Alex in Rugby.


Our artists take their inspiration from a diverse range of areas in life and nature. Expressions of colour, light & form are explored, with both abstract and real-life expressions of nature and human life.
We have an artist inspired by patterns in nature, exploring the possibilities of paper, an ordinary material into something extraordinary. Another artist using natures inspiration from woodland to the ocean to shape precious metals. A textile artist with a fascination for regeneration and renewal, using inspiration from the natural environment and the outdoors. A ceramicist whose inspiration comes from faces and the stories behind them. Finally, a sculpture and painter expressing a sensuous exploration of metaphysical and material realities.
This is the reason we love to bring a range of artists together in one place. For you to experience a diverse range of art, and for us to hear each other inspirations.


Come and speak with our artists and find out how and why they use the medium they do. Clare can tell you of her use of paper. Hand cutting and folding creating ever more intricate pieces of art.
