This December, Surface Gallery welcomes Vanessa Short to Nottingham to present a different side of the national miners strike of 1984-85, thirty years on.
Surface Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Jodie Wingham. The exhibition is the culmination of four-week residency, which was awarded to Wingham as the Surface Gallery prize for the Nottingham Castle Open 2014.
This August, Surface Gallery is pleased to present Painted Surface, an exhibition that asks, what is painting today?
In conjunction with the current Street Art exhibition, there will be an event held across the street from Surface Gallery at Sneinton Market on Saturday 4th July. The event will feature DJs from I’m Not From London and Gallery Sounds, and breakdancing from the QMX Street Team. There will also be skateboarding and live painting by local street artists, including the kids from the SEND Project.
This Summer, Surface Gallery will throw open the doors for the Street Art Festival. This hugely popular exhibition supports and promotes Nottingham’s vibrant alternative art scene by showcasing some of today’s best local talent. We are also accepting work from all around the world. In keeping with the spirit of the occasion, Surface Gallery welcomes submissions from established and emerging artists working in a variety of disciplines, making it a truly inclusive and eclectic affair.
May sees Surface Gallery show off a selection of talent from beneath its venerable roof with Above/Below, a joint artist/volunteer show.
This April, Surface Gallery welcomes Out Of Joint, an exhibition by Perry Henley and Rebecca Burt that explores storytelling narratives via visual means. Through the combination of the fictitious and factual elements of storytelling a conversation is created that integrates the work of the two artists. Novels and stories are a significant starting point to each of their work. Influenced by science fiction writers, such as J.G. Ballard, Ray Cummings, and Tom McCarthy, both artists seek to portray themes of time and psychological confusion.
Surface Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Chiara Dellerba. The exhibition is concerned with habitual ways of seeing: with what we know (the experience of reality through our senses, specifically sight) and by what we believe (experience mediated through preconception).
Surface Gallery is delighted to host a show of work by 16 students from Nottingham Trent University, Division One Six. These second-year Photography undergraduates have put together their first exhibition, and will share our top-floor project space. See the Facebook event for more info.
This January, Surface Gallery will launch its 2015 exhibition calendar when it hosts the annual Cedric Ford Art Prize. The exhibition opens at Surface Gallery before moving to two other venues in the city, and features work from students and alumni of the BA Fine Art course at the University of Nottingham.
