Decade: 3rd Space Studios Exhibition
4th - 11th May

Shaun Belcher / Zenon Geeradkowski / Jane Gill / Daniel Hunt / Steven Ingman / Stephen Jon / Antonietta Sacco / Anne Standing / Gabriel Tejada / Linda Wallis

Surface Gallery is proud to present Decade, the culmination of 3rd Space Studios' passions, investigations, and discussions that have fuelled them over the last ten years.

These ten artists offer a mix of disciplines and media which are a manifestation of the work taking place in the studios at this present time. From the refined and highly detailed paintings of Gabriel Tejada, through to the eclectic theatrical assemblages of Antonietta Sacco; get up close and personal with migrating souls in the illustrations of Anne Standing; experience the urban landscape afresh with the paintings of Linda Wallis and Steve Ingman as they present works that reveal visions of a psychoactive world. Other artists pursue a more abstract language, exploring possibilities of colour, form, and expressions of materiality.

Based in Sherwood 3rd Space Studios provide a vital professional working space for local artists. The studio celebrates and is proud of its position on the periphery, as well as it's continued commitment to encouraging and supporting contemporary arts outside of the city centre.

Surface Gallery invites you to share in 3rd Space Studios' journey as they prepare to begin a new chapter with their investigations of personal and cultural histories.
