35 & Counting, Aspex, Portsmouth

Feb 3rd – March 19th 2017

For over 35 years, we have been supporting emerging artists at critical points in their career, from the presentation of solo shows, through to our artist support programme.

Following humble beginnings in Brougham Road, Southsea, we moved to the historic Vulcan Building on the waterfront at Gunwharf Quays in 2006 — delivering an even more ambitious programme of exhibitions and events.
To mark this legacy, we present ’35 & Counting’, an exhibition and online auction showcasing artists who have worked with the organisation over the past twenty years.

Online Auction

Each piece will be sold in an online silent auction, with all proceeds supporting future artist residencies in our new, accessible artist studio. All of the exhibited artworks have been generously donated by the artists.
We will use the auction as an opportunity to launch our new fundraising initiative, supported by Arts Council England through its Catalyst: Evolve programme — so every £1 raised through the auction will be matched by Arts Council England, doubling the donation!
