So unbelievably it's 2018 already and after filling ourselves up on mince pies, good cheer and celebrations, we are back open again, Wednesday - Thursday 11-4pm, and although we will be sad to see the back of Dewi Cary's ENDING on the 13th January, we are very excited to bring you our first exhibition of the new year, LAYERS.
LAYERS is a new exhibition, bringing together the work of the PENISULAR ARTISTS, a new collective of professional artists living and working on the Gosport peninsula in their first group show.
The exhibition begins with its private view on Thursday 18th January, starting at 6pm, and continues the following day from 11am. The exhibition will run until the 17th February.
You are more than welcome to join us for the PV and we extend a warm welcome to all!
Join us on Saturday 18th November for the closing event of Female Abstraction, our brilliant recent exhibition showing some of the most talented female contemporary abstract painters working in the UK.
The Female AbstractionArtist Talk features three artists taking part in Female Abstraction, including two who could not make it to the private view. Judith Whitehouse, Anthea Ryan and Sarah Maccario will be joining us to discuss their practice, the ideas behind their work and to answer any questions you may have about it.
We will be staying open later than our usual opening hours to give people a chance to chat and mingle afterward. Refreshments will be provided.
This is also your last chance to purchase works featured in the exhibition, so with Christmas coming up why not buy the perfect gift for the art lover in your life
Due to our size we have limited seating with chairs reserved for those who have need of them, please contact us if you have a mobility issue and will need to be seated.
Join us on Saturday 2nd September for the opening of Sticks Contemporary in Gosport and the private view of Fragments, a new exhibition featuring the work of two Portsmouth based artists, Sue Eves and Krasimira Butseva.
Featuring work from Sue Eves' Rollered collection and Krasimira Butseva's well received, Slices of Red (pieces of which have been featured on Lens Culture and Source among others); Fragments aims to create a two-way conversation about the lived experience, and our understanding of what is real and what is not, whether that is down to human imagination, as in the case of Sue's work Rollered or due to some different system, such as that used in propaganda, represented by Krasimira's work questioning the reality of the photographic image in relation to Eastern European communism.

It does this by situating the work of these two very different artists in such a way that can be read either as individual collections or together, moving from one side of the room to the other, looking at the concept of reality and what impact our psychology and lived experience has on our own version of what can be considered "real".

The private view begins at 5pm and continues until 7pm at our new base in the heart of historic Gosport. Both artists will be in attendance and on-hand to speak more about their work and food and drink will be provided by Sticks Contemporary.
