The new year is always a busy time at Abbey Walk Gallery and 2015 promises to be no exception, starting with the arrival of an exciting new touring exhibition – The Forest of Possibility.
It’s an exploration of that most humble and most essential of media, paper and of its origins in the heart of the forest.
The forest is a place of vast potential, where myths and fairy tales are created. Sinister or enchanted, it is a space for the subconscious,
a place for both dreams and nightmares.
Featuring seven artists from all around the globe, the exhibition invites you to enter a world of extraordinary encounters with the forest, its ancient trees and the animals and plants that live there.
In January the gallery is heading off to the London Contemporary and Modern Art Fair in Islington, London where it will be exhibiting Lincolnshire artists Stephen Newton, Paul Galyer, Linda Ingham and Michael Thacker ARBS. This is the third year that the gallery has exhibited and it is one of only a handful of northern galleries selected.
In February the gallery hosts the Retrospective Exhibition of internationally renowned artist Stephen Newton. Spanning nearly three decades this is a major event that groups together significant moments of his remarkable career. Highlighting the full extent of the artist’s work which, has encompassed a diverse range of techniques and ideas it’s a celebration not to be missed.
