In June of 2017 the Art Station launched.  Initially it offered the local community of Saxmundum (Suffolk) free contemporary art education programmes.

This year (2020) the Art Station acquired a new premises, the first floor of what was previously the post office situated in Saxmundum town on the local high street.  It is currently undergoing extensive restoration but the large gallery space is available for exhibitions/events – Covid-19 pandemic  rules allowing.

The Art Station continues its online programmes by utilising a number of social media platforms.  Currently it has an open call for a free critiquing of artists creative works.  To be included in the critique all that is needed is to email [email protected] a link for your website or Instagram account, along with three sentences stating what your work is, where you are based and why you wish to be involved.  The deadline for application is the 6th of January 2021 the session will be held on the 18th of January 2021 (Monday) between 7 – 9pm on Zoom.
