Rob Burton: The Material Imagination
14 April – 10 June 2018

Rob Burton is a visual artist and academic who explores themes of memory, loss and transformation through fibre, fabric making, print techniques, drawing and broad approaches to image making. His artworks cross the threshold of disciplines in a conceptual dialogue between the innovative use of analogue, contemporary and emerging techniques. Rob has recently exhibited internationally in group exhibitions, biennials and triennials in the USA, Eastern Europe and the UK. He is Head of Design and Innovation at Teesside University.


To celebrate these warm late spring days, you are invited to Paxos, a tiny verdant island just south of Corfu where my menu is inspired by its abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, grassy olive oil and briny olives. On Thursday and Friday the following dishes will be available:

Spanakopita, a classic filo pie featuring creamy feta cheese, spinach and dill
Sumptuous roasted red peppers stuffed with creamy arborio rice, golden sultanas and toasted pine kernels (vegan)
A bright spelt and chickpea salad with roasted red peppers and kalamata olives (vegan) A classic Greek salad, with feta and wild oregano
A creamy, garlicky lemon-scented hummus

Hilly Fletcher: Belonging(s)
15 June – 15 July 2018

An exhibition in mixed-media exploring themes of home, journeys, safety and shelter, Hilly refers to refugees and their precarious experience of these core concepts. Through it, she asks her audience: how would you feel if your home were taken at a moment’s notice?

Shirley Teed (1933-2018): Mother Love
20 July – 7 October 2018

Shirley Teed trained at the West of England School of Art in the late 1940s, where she was taught by Bernard Dunstan. After a brief period in Australia in the 1950s, where she was mentored by the artist John Brack, she returned to the UK and spent the next six decades navigating the emotive spaces between artist, wife and mother.

Shirley is Robert’s mother and this is her journey.

This memorial exhibition will open on the evening of 20 July 2018 (6-8pm).

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
