Exhibitions at Wingfield Barns

One of the highlights of the summer season in East Anglia is the International Miniprint exhibition at Wingfield Barns. The exhibition which has been running annually since 1995 in Wingfield is curated by Ian Chance who is currently course director for the MA Creative Entrepreneurship course at the University of East Anglia. There are over 650 prints from 50 countries worldwide. This year’s collection is bound to delight both visitors and collectors alike as it provides the opportunity to buy and own original works of art created by contemporary artists at very affordable prices.

Gallery 1 Exhibition Boards

There will also be exhibition boards showing the links between Wingfield and the village of Ewelme in Oxfordshire. The exhibition is a very personal account of how one resident of Ewelme (and member of supposedly one of the oldest families in the village) investigated his own family and their possible connection with Wingfield. Craftsmen from Wingfield built the church, almshouses and school at Ewelme.
