It’s getting cold in Worthing, but our gallery is warm and full of inspiration. Find out what’s going down at Colonnade House this month.

Salvage Sounds
Exhibition // 2 – 6 November // 10.00 – 17.00 daily 

Strum your favourite tunes on a cigar box guitar or a coffee tin canjo. Each handmade instrument from Salvage Sounds is crafted from repurposed and up-cycled materials, they are full of individual character and they sound amazing too. Pop in for a closer look and a quick demo to check out their versatility and find out more about how they are made. Our top tip is to get down here quick before they sell out – the list for Christmas orders fills up fast too!


Space to Make Sessions: November 2021
5 & 6 November // 10.00 – 12.00 & 14.00 – 16.00 // Booking essential

Bear with us…
8 – 14 November // Closed

 Our repair work has been delayed so we will be closed again for one week. It feels like a very long time since June and we can’t wait to re-open with sparkling new windows!!

16 – 21 November // 10.00 – 17.00 daily

The fireworks might be over, but there are explosions of colour everywhere in Walter Wall’s latest exhibition. Always experimenting, Walter throws, peels, sticks and splashes paint because it can be both liquid and solid, and the accidental can become the intentional. You never know which way it’s going to go next, so come and enjoy the journey.

Owen Davey
23 – 28 November // 10.00 – 17.00

Enter a wonderful world of shape and colour from award winning illustrator Owen Davey. With subjects ranging from spacemen to sharks, and spanning prints, books, cards, pin-badges and puzzles you can get ahead with your Christmas list and perhaps pick up something special for your living room wall. Tickets for a free family drawing session on Sunday 28th can be booked here.

Michelle Dawson
23 – 28 November // 10.00 – 17.00 

Michelle loves to draw, and she loves to teach other people how to draw and the starting point for both is to take a close look at what is around you. Michelle’s choice of subjects are often familiar and local, but she works with colour in a way that transforms the everyday into something delightful. Take home a little slice of Shoreham dressed in pinks and blues, or a piece of the pier in pastel tones.

Anne Krinsky: Wetlands / Shifting Shorelines
29  October 2021 – 28 April 2022 // Seafront Gallery

Trained as a print-maker, Anne Krinsky’s work is layered and patterned – perfect for this study of the shifting wetlands of the south coast which are re-made daily by the forces of wind and water.

To highlight the inspirational work of community groups and scientists working to protect and restore coastal ecosystems, the exhibition also includes information panels about Bird Aware Solent, The Solent Oyster Restoration Project and The Sussex Kelp Restoration Project.

John Evans & Janet Branscombe: Collaborations
From 30 November // 10.00 – 17.00

The ongoing collaboration between these two artists enters a new chapter in this exhibition. People dance across John’s hand-built vessels, Janet’s painterly colours imbue glazes and vases bend with the graceful movement of figures. Alongside these pieces, will be John’s popular raku fired monochrome ceramics and Janet’s intuitive figurative and abstract paintings.
