Pop Up Shop


This month we have lots of returning artists exhibiting at Colonnade House. Brian Tew will be exhibiting his latest large scale ceramics and digital art pieces. John Evans & Janet Branscombe are back with their latest range of ceramics, paintings and sculptures. We also welcome back Walter Wall, with his second exhibition at Colonnade House this year!

We end 2019 with our annual Festive Pop-Up Shop, which celebrates Worthing’s creative community. It’s a great chance to pick up some handmade gifts and to meet the tenant’s who work in Colonnade House studios.

Janet and John

Oil and Fire – In Flux
Until 8 December // 10.00 – 17.00 // Free entry

Sensual is the word for the flowing forms of Janet Branscombe’s paintings and the tactile surfaces of John Evans’s ceramics, and unusually for an art exhibition you are encouraged to touch the artwork! Come and talk to the artists to discover the fascinating processes that lie beneath the surface.

Brian Tew

Brian Tew
Until 8 December // 10.00 – 17.00 // Free entry

Brian lets the materials guide him when he makes his ceramic sculptures, he sees potential when things don’t turn out as intended, and he enjoys re-visiting past work to update it with digital technology. This life-long commitment to curiosity makes for an exhibition rich in ideas and originality.

Walter Wall: Constant Inconsistencies

Walter Wall: Constant Inconsistencies
10 – 24 December // 10.00 – 17.00 // Free entry

To create this latest group of paintings, Walter has set himself some rules – and then followed them inconsistently. The results are colourful, eye-catching, exuberant – and very unruly.
