Current exhibitions


Theories of the Earth: Shaun Fraser, Wayne Binitie, Flora Bowden, Kabir Hussain

14 October - 16 December 2018, Tuesdays to Saturdays, 11-4

Theories of the Earth offers a timely insight into the contemporary issues of climate change alongside deeper stories of the earth’s formation. Artist's inspiration ranges from the British Antarctic Survey’s 800,000 year-old ice-core archive, and the phenomenon of glacial water; the peat-rich highlands of Scotland and the contrasting landscapes  the archaeology and ancient stones of East Anglia, Peru and India. Its title comes from the seminal geological text by James Hutton Theory of the Earth (1795).

Upstairs at GroundWork: Colour in Nature

Colour in Nature- from pattern to poison - features four artists working in glass, textile, paint and ceramic. They are all inspired by the possibilities between materials, forms and the subtle colours formed by nature, intensified, sometimes harshly, by the chemicals which disturb it.
