Sticks Contemporary is an artist-led gallery on Hampshire’s south coast.  Once nomadic in nature, Unit 15, Gosport Precinct is now our permanent home after two years at Unit 79a, Fareham Shopping Centre.

We curate exhibitions in various outreach spaces in the region also.

 

 

Here’s a taste of what we’ve accomplished over the last few years

 

 

Parented by not for profit artist-led organisation, Live Art Local CIC we seek to engage everyone with contemporary art and to improve opportunities for artists to share their work.  Through our aim to make the arts accessible for all we run workshops and events for the community at various times throughout the year.
