GroundWork is an art gallery which shows the work of contemporary artists who care about how we see the world. Exhibitions and creative programmes we explore how art can enable us to respond to the changing environment and imagine how we can shape its future.
More about the gallery......
GroundWork Gallery brings contemporary art about the environment to the historic town of King's Lynn. Over time, you can expect to see all forms of visual arts: from painting to film to sculpture; from curated collections to new works; from internationally-known artists to emerging talents.
The gallery is spacious but modest in size (180 square metres in area), arranged over two floors separated by a stairwell where we also show art. Our programmes are outward-looking, and sometimes challenging. However, the gallery is a space for everyone, a space for lifelong residents and first-time visitors, a space to be inspired by art and environment.
The Extended Programme
Events, talks, films, music, practical workshops, and community projects accompany each exhibition to open up its ideas in different ways and to stimulate creativity and discussion. We specialise in talks and discussions by artists and environmentalists together, looking at each theme from different points of view, across art, science and culture.
