During this difficult time when galleries and museums are closed it is still possible to view the vibrant work of a local illustrator. Work by John will be hung in Colonnade House and can be viewed from the windows on Warwick Street and High Street from 9 June

We will be opening for visits to the gallery from 15 – 20 June 10.00 – 17.00.


At a time when many of us feel like we’re stuck on repeat, the need for positivity is universal.

GroundDog Day is a collection of bold and playful, dog themed artworks from local artist John Bond. His ‘Dawgmented Reality’ is projected onto anything that moves (or doesn’t), breathing K9 life into a host of inanimate objects, symbology and familiar day-to-day activities.

Following his debut title ‘Mini Rabbit Not Lost’, ‘Mini Rabbit Must Help’ is the brand new picture book written and illustrated by John Bond.

The book launches on the 25th June – published by HarperCollins – and is available to preorder now.
