The Gallery

The Old Brick Workshop is home to Wellington's very own Contemporary Art Gallery

The Gallery was launched in October 2015 as venue No. 1 for Somerset Arts Weeks Festival.
It was host to 13 contemporary artists and attracted over 800 visitors to its inaugural event.

A full program of exhibitions have been hosted through 2016. Shows that were modern, thought provoking and diverse. We're looking forward to bringing artists and the community together for many more exhibitions and events in the coming year.

 

 

Current Exhibition

Vessels of Tin Construction, Ghost Planes & The Boys

5 - 18 November 2018

Open daily 11am - 6pm

Louise Baker has studied and worked in the arts for fifty years. After completing her degree at Falmouth School of Art and postgraduate DipEd at Newcastle University she taught in Nigeria for ten years, for six of these in the sculpture department of Ahmadu Bello University where she was also awarded her M.A. Since returning to the UK she has curated exhibitions and undertaken public art projects in addition to developing her own work.

As an artist she considers herself a watcher, an observer of the minutiae that make up a landscape, a cataloguer of the seen and found, a collector of objects, a recorder of the pathway trod. Relentlessly curious.

Vessels of Tin Construction, Ghost Planes & The Boys

A series of mixed media installations, collage and bookworks reflecting indirectly on family connections over a hundred and four years of war.

This group of work has developed over the last fifteen years but is still not fully resolved. The work is not overtly political, not trying to define the rights or wrongs of it, just that it happened and that the effects of these conflicts will reverberate for a long time.




The gallery is now available to hire for exhibitions and events. Please contact Alison on 07989 465427 or email alison@theoldbrickworkshop.com for details.
