Broadway Studio & Gallery
Broadway Gallery is an exhibition space displaying art, craft and design, including work by internationally acclaimed practitioners as well as local and emerging talent.
The current exhibition is Lois Walpole: Weaving Ghosts - an exhibition that focuses on ghost gear*, basketry skills and sustainability. The work of Lois Walpole is intrinsically linked to the materials used to create it, and tells a powerful story of our attitude to the environment, exploring the artist’s personal history to express universal issues. Using ancient and almost forgotten basketry techniques, Walpole’s cheerful, colourful vessels
belie a deeper truth and stand as silent testaments to the problems facing our planet.
*‘ghost gear’ is the name that has been internationally given to all the ropes, nets and plastic debris that finds its way into the sea, most of which, but not all, is there as a consequence of commercial fishing practices.
It is not only polluting the environment but is also dangerous for shipping and wildlife.
If you enjoy visiting galleries then why not join our Exhibitions Club. The format is the same as a book club – we pick an exhibition to all visit (either individually or as a group) and meet to discuss what we’ve seen.
The Broadway Studio is a flexible space supporting visual and performance arts – creative workshops, lectures, art classes, exhibitions, music, rehearsals and more. If you run a group looking for space to hire, this could be a solution.
