The Workhouse Community Project

15 July 2017 to 2 September 2017

The Workhouse Community Project is an Arts Council England funded exhibition of work that explores British history and what it’s like to live in Britain now. A group of EU citizens living in Banbury worked with artist Wig Sayell to create new artwork based on personal experiences. A visit to a renovated workhouse converted into flats in Chipping Norton was their starting point for an exploration of how people manage in times of economic hardship, both in the present and the past. Through a series of workshops, participants experimented with darkroom processes and disposable cameras to create their own collaged work.

Andy Owen: The Long Way Home

17 December 2016 - 28 January 2017
Capturing fleeting details of the urban landscape, Andy Owen’s paintings explore the everyday environment and the disconnected relationship we have with our surroundings. Merging digital technology with painterly tradition, Owen’s practice alludes to the notion that we increasingly encounter our environment mediated through technology. The finished works resemble places that might be familiar yet seem strange as if recalled from a dream, or glimpsed from a speeding train. Referencing 19th Century Romantic Painting and incorporating diverse influences from modern Science Fiction, his constructed landscapes transcend digital, cinematic and painterly space.

Merlin Brooke-Little

2 July - 24 September 2016
Merlin Brooke-Little is an Oxfordshire artist who works mainly in collage. 'I love to find connections or to make new connections between pieces of ephemera. A lot of the material that I use will have some family connection if only that it has been stored in a pile, in a case in a room, under a bed, back of a drawer or a coat pocket. To rework them into a visually interesting piece is a way of giving them a better send-off, a better passing; it is a way celebrating their past and now lost moment of meaning. I think that finding humour in the pieces is a welcome addition to what can in other ways be a reflective form of memorial.'

Robin Danely

21 May - 2 July 2016
Robin says of her work, "I have been long fascinated by geological time, the nature of change, and human identity in the midst of this vast kaleidoscope. My abstract work explores these ideas through accumulation of layers and loose metaphoric imagery. In my portraiture, I seek a dynamic expression of brushwork and colour to render my human subjects, ever observant about what makes us unique."

Manifestations of Light

16 January – 26 February 2016
This exhibition of photographs has been developed by a group of Oxfordshire photographers who came together through Oxfordshire Adult Learning (now Oxfordshire Skills and Learning). Each has chosen a subject of interest and built up a portfolio of work over a ten-week period, with support and advice from one another and from their tutor, Rebecca Phillipson, herself an Oxford photographer. The resulting exhibition has light as its theme, with individuals' interpretations varying widely, from warm autumnal sunlight to the neon lights of Piccadilly Circus.

Adrian Pickett

24 October 2015 - 15 January 2016
Adrian Pickett's pictures are hybrid in nature, bridging the figurative and the abstract, the formal and the spontaneous. Lines, silhouettes and bold colour contrasts are among the tools he uses to create pictures that evoke a questioning approach to the enigmas of being and seeing.

John Umney

1 August - 24 October 2015
Photographer John Umney's drive has always been to explore his subject matter from an original or different point of view. He is exhibiting his hauntingly beautiful landscape photographs of 'a place called Purgatory situated between Oxford and Banbury where once lived farming folk, but which is now unsettled. This work addresses the distinction between the 'space' that 'Purgatory' creates, with all its concomitant connotations and the physical 'place'.

Jonathan Shapley

9 May - 20 June 2015
Jonathan Shapley's exhibition consists mainly of collages of images of objects and landscapes put together so as to suggest new environments or spaces, much as real places are made up of numerous layers of material, history, memory, etc. Some of the works contain images of familiar household items as a reference to our desire to name the unfamiliar, often huge, structures that dot city skylines after small, recognisable and often everyday objects or items such as a walkie-talkie, gherkin, or cheesegrater.
Work by John Shapley

Victoria Hallam

28 March - 9 May 2015
"I am interested in the patterns found in landscape and the way the colours change over the course of the year. I am particularly attracted by woods and seascapes. I start by making images from life using charcoal and colour crayons. I then use these to make larger paintings usually in acrylics on card or canvas. The subject matter is often changed to become more abstract." Victoria Hallam.
