September at Colonnade House

This October sees the return of the fantastic Photo Fringe festival. For those unfamiliar with Photo Fringe, they are a “volunteer-led, collaborative platform providing essential professional development opportunities and peer-support for lens-based artists” and we’ve been fortunate enough to collaborate with them for their last 3 biennial festivals. Below we’ll take you through what’s happening at the gallery, along the prom’ and a little further into the future at Colonnade House.

Spring into Soul Celebrates Black History Month
Coming Soon

Looking further ahead into November we have the fantastic Adrienne and Dylan Shields exhibiting in Gallery 1 at the beginning of November. Adrienne’s captivating ceramic and painted work will be displayed alongside Dylan’s unique sculptures which investigate the relationship between traditional narrative painting and contemporary materials. In Gallery 2 during the same period we welcome back the brilliant Liz English whose exhibition “Chinoiserie Chaos” will transform the gallery into a riot of colour, floristry, paint, collage and freeform embroidery. Neither exhibition is to be missed!
