Dennington Arts, often likened to prestigious London galleries, opens its art exhibition ‘Awakening’ over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, at the newly refurbished Dennington Village Hall.

The annual show attracts hundreds of visitors, including collectors, museum directors, curators, gallery owners, artists and art lovers.
It is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the artworks of prominent
and upcoming artists in a historic location.

Suffolk cancer survivor Rosie Mckenzie is the founder of Dennington Arts; “I wanted to be more altruistic, share a space with talented people. Because of my cancer, I think I was more determined than ever to try and do it”.

As well as running the arts community, Rosie, in her late 60s, drives a bus for Saxmundham Free School. With ‘Awakening’ she unites local artists for a collection of works which unfold the human emotions that emerge from day-to-day life experiences. The exhibition is inspired by nature awakening and the joy of that awakening reflected upon the land.
