Bridge Arts Events

Uckfield Railway Station Pop-up Exhibition: Throughout June & July

A unique and inventive exhibition is taking place in the waiting room of Uckfield Railway Station where commuters, travellers and visitors and can enjoy a space transformed by art.

The exhibition energises the space by displaying transparent images of artists’ work on the windows. This lets natural light filter through illuminating the artworks and bringing the room to life.

The images showcase a selection of the varied and diverse range of art and craft pieces created by the Bridge Arts members and provides a tantalising taster of what you can expect to see at the Bridge Arts in Uckfield Summer Fair in June.
