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.
Graham Lowe: The Space Between
Monday 12 March – Saturday 21 April
Graham’s abstract landscape paintings aim to create a poetic balance of colour, form and content in order to reflect the natural interplay of the sea, land and sky.
Ryan Chadwick Artist
Monday 23 April – Saturday 19 May
Ryan's work represents a deep love and interest of the world around; the pulsing beat and rhythm of the earth from the largest mammals of the oceans to the tiniest creatures of the rainforest
Neil McBride: Crowdscapes
Monday 21 May – Saturday 30 June
Neil’s love of people is exhibited in these figurative, semi-abstract paintings of crowds of people in eventful situations. They are designed to stimulate and challenge the viewer with their rehearsed spontaneity.
Tina Mammoser After the Ice: Norway and North Yorkshire
Monday 2 July – Saturday 4 August
A sublime combination of colour, light and geology meets in these original paintings exploring the making our modern seaside landscapes as the artist follows the glaciers from Norway to our local cliffs from Skipsea to Staithes.
David Utting: Scarborough to Staithes
Monday 6 August – Saturday 15 September
Red roofs, bright boats and harbours - all the inspiration needed in this short stretch of Yorkshire coastline.
