Braintree Open Online 2020 Logo

We’re pleased to welcome you to the first Braintree Open Online Art Exhibition, with work submitted by artists in and around the Braintree area. We hope you enjoy it!

Thank you to all the artists who have shared their work with us and supported the Braintree Open Art Exhibition through these strange times.

Public Art Directory

Braintree District is home to a diverse collection of public artworks ranging from traditional bronze statues to contemporary metal sculptures. Some well known artists have made their mark in the District; Braintree is home to an Eric Gill stone carving whilst Richard, the son of the famous printmaker Edward Bawden, has created glass etchings for the Church of St Mary in Great Bardfield.

Most works have been produced as the result of commissions from public benefactors, local authorities or developers in connection with new building projects, and the great majority were created within the last hundred years. Often local residents have been involved in consultation during the design of the work, and they have sometimes also participated in its creation.

If you know of other works within the Braintree District which should be added to this list, please contact us.

As we were unable to go ahead with the planned exhibition this year, we are instead having our first online exhibition.
Thank you to the artists for taking part and keeping the Braintree Open going through these strange times!
