Galleries

Our galleries offer a diverse and dynamic exhibition programme throughout the year. They serve as a platform to showcase work from a wide range of artists as well as art, heritage and community projects curated by The Horsebridge.

The galleries are free to visit and are open to public every day apart from the first and last day of the exhibition dates which are dedicated installation and de-installation days.

Spring Show

Estelle Jourd Reflecting a lifetime spent in Whitstable by the sea, Estelle's work mainly focuses on the sea and sky. The atmosphere created by the weather conditions throughout the year feature in this solo show of oil on canvas.

Beyond the Mundane

Natasha Pearl Encompassing work from the previous two decades and including new unseen work this exhibition looks at the theme of there being something else that exists beyond ourselves that is magical and mysterious.

Pudding Pan Rock

Young History Makers The Young History Makers combine heritage and contemporary arts in an exciting new exhibition as they unravel the mystery of how hundreds of little red roman pots ended up on the Whitstable and Herne Bay sea bed.

At Memory's Edge

Fishslab Collective Memory is an individual’s perception of a real event; remembering, lost, forgotten, buried, sweet, bitter, sad or happy, but often imperfect images. Artists will explore and respond to this theme.

Shoreline

Irene Southon, Lindsay Wilkinson and Sue Moreton Through their work, the artists explore the colours and textures of the East Kent Shoreline and in particular their local area of Whitstable. In this collaborative show the artists have created pieces using felt, ceramics and fused glass and examples of these materials in various stages of production will also be on display.

Views by a Thousand Eyes

Canterbury Society of Art Views by a thousand eyes focuses on the conceptual eye of the inner mind and how it evolves into an individual art form, allowing audiences to reflect on their own visual experiences.

This Is What I Want To Show You
