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.
We're inviting all artists working in any 2D medium to submit works for our premier show at the Tooth Gallery: Gargle.

Gargle is a tongue in cheek exhibition of the mouth curated by Jenny Tipton, we're interested in works that focus on the mouth: what's inside them, what comes out of them, teeth, tongues, speech and taste, whatever you work features, we would like to see it!

An exciting and playful exhibition, 'Invitation to Participate' opened its doors on Saturday 7th May, welcoming visitors of the private view to experience a realm of art engaging with participation.
Mcgilvary/White chose individuals to play with their work 'Pong', while Alice Kilkenny offered a serene window space of colorful reflection to sit in. Katie Tindle transformed you into a voyeur with a frantic stat screen of her health, while Jacob Watmore cast you as the protagonist of your own scene in his piece 'Script, Pepperami'. An indie art game weaved a visual poem in the form of Daniel Benmergui's 'Today I Die', and drifting over the gallery the words of the tongue in cheek protest flag by Shireen Liane, commanded everyone to 'Let Them Eat iPhones'. In the background the eclectic music of the San Dance Company played, an organisation stemming from San Keller's intriguing work 'Until the Last Dance', a contractual agreement between yourself and the artist to dance for the rest of your life to your chosen song.
The exhibition runs until June 11th, open Thursday - Saturday, 10am - 3pm.
