The Stephen Joseph Theatre has a small gallery which runs around the corridor outside The Round auditorium. We aim to champion the works of local artists as well as housing exhibitions related to the current repertoire and, where possible, national exhibitions. The exhibitions usually run from the first performance of a play to the last night - approximately a month. If you are interested in exhibiting please contact the theatre in writing marking your envelope 'Gallery Exhibitions'.
The Gallery is open Monday - Saturday from 10am - 6pm except during performances. Admission is free.

The trees and sea speak deeply into my soul, they hold many of my secrets and I theirs. They take my hand as I try and put down onto paper or canvas their whisperings. They create for me a sacred space in time and place. I would like others to find a similar sense of peace through my drawings and mono-prints.

As a full time artist working from his studios in Sledmere & Staithes, Ians approach to digital printmaking combines his interest in landscape and design. As a reductive artist in pursuit of a minimal outcome he draws by hand digitally, creating a pared down reality.
Using a stylus pen with vectors he designs a unique distillation of the landscape, stripping away the topographical view.
Ian has recently worked to commission for Arup, The Mercer Gallery and regularly exhibits at Art Fairs.

Two things in life make my heart sing – swimming and painting.
It is the sense of both vulnerability and freedom in the open water that I try to portray.
