Art Gallery based in Burslem since 2010. We have worked with many local and national connected artists with a strong connection to the Burslem School of Art.
In 2023 we refitted the gallery with a more curated direction with artwork and decorative items placed and staged with reworked and found furniture from neighbour business Lost and Found Projects.
Lost and Found Projects are now working next door and open to visit at the same opening hours. Tues to Sat 11 to 4pm.
A sustainable approach to working is one which we are continually looking to improve on and and we continue to improve in this direction by working with found artist studios, encouraging current artists to work in this way, and with new artists that work in this way.
We also want to show a more balanced outlook of the artwork on display including more representation of woman artists who have been massively underrepresented in the art world. We have made a pledge to work in a 50/50 representation of female to male artists by the end of 2023.
Art Gallery showing 20th century modern art, quality found vintage and contemporary sustainable art, painters, potters and sculptors.
Set in beautifully curated displays with found reworked, restored and repurposed furniture by fashion designer led Lost and Found Projects.
Find a complete sustainable room for your home or business or a piece to collect or gift without harming the environment.
