Our 2021 Artists

Unmissable Khaled paintings in dialogue with Skinner‘s photograph. Bagguley‘s paintings align with Zattarin‘s work in a dialogue of compassion. A vibrant hope installation by Parejo and Anon is in tune with Lieberman‘s Extended Ocean work.

For the first time we will have a digital art room in which exciting artists share new opportunities created by the 4th industrial revolution.

Many pieces from the artists featured in Encounters’ shows are available for sale.

Don’t miss the arti-shop when you visit and, throughout the year, the Arti-Shop can be seen by appointment. Go to the ‘get in touch’ page to arrange your appointment.
