Our first exhibition of 2018 in the Upper Gallery is entitled “Baggage” and produced by a group of artists who call themselves #SEVEN. This exhibition will see a guest artist joining them as well.

You are very welcome to join us for the preview on Friday 16th February from 7-9pm.

#SEVEN (hashtag7) are a group of colleagues who met working at Newcastle under Lyme College rediscovering their own way of working through collaboration.

“After many years in education working with students we find we are all rekindling and redeveloping our individual work and linking it to each other.  Our new theme for this exhibition at the Foxlowe Gallery is ‘Baggage’ and we will be looking at our own interpretation and working through our own individual mediums using painting, drawing, photography, weave, embroidery, felt-making and ceramics“

“An artist doesn’t produce a piece of work that stands completely by itself, many of the artist’s previous experiences and recollections go towards the new pieces of work. No-one is without their own personal baggage in this respect we will be selecting a range of colours and textures that we particularly enjoy, based on our own baggage to make a new range of work.”

The artists taking part are Heather Hancock, Joyce Iwaszko, Jeanette Fanthome, Sara Penny, Ruth Rowland, Sharon Porteous and Hazel Higham, their guest artist is Paul Gosling.


The exhibition starts on 17th February and runs through to Thursday 29th March.


Foxlowe Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday 10am-4pm and the first Sunday of the month (11am-4pm)
