Photos of 'Urban Portrayal' ready!

Photographs taken by the very talented Jonathan Taphouse are now available to view our the Gallery page and on flickr. If you've taken any photos of the event and wish to share them, please post to our facebook fan page

We are open!

Afternoon art lovers,

Today is our first day open to the public! We had a wonderful night last night, it was great to see so many new faces!

We would like to say thank you to all who came and to those who spread the word! The Incident Room was launched in true art-style (thanks to Ryan & Loz who made the ribbon for us).

Thank you to lovely Ruth Essex who declared the gallery open! A big thank you to all who gave your support in ways of donating, scrubbing, painting, hanging works and by simply making my life that much easier!

Well done to all the artists for producing such fantastic works, we've had raving reviews from various visitors. I'm sure we'll be hearing about the gallery a lot more now we're well on our way to being fully established!

Photographs will be posted soon!

All the best

Coming together

The floor looks like this!

Parts of the floor now look like this!

After much of this!

 Mystery package...ohhh exciting!

 Playing jigsaw with the works to see what goes where

Oh I love bubble wrap!

My bike's got a flat so I walked home in the rain.
This cheered me up!

3 more sleeps till blast off!

Less than a week to go!

It's Friday and the weekend is upon us. We've less than a week until the grand opening of The Incident Room and this little lass is somewhat excited! More artworks are arriving each day and The Islands office is beginning to look like a postal sorting office!

The last hour at The Incident Room, documented for your pleasure..

When Tracey Page pulled her sculpture from this box, there were some rather peculiar items lingering at the bottom. I've called this "Pieces of Jennifer's Body - An Accidental Artwork". After hours of scrubbing one floor, things like this can lift a person!

And here is Tracey unravelling all the layers of protection while we work on installing her sculpture, which doesn't go to plan but we are geniuses and have a brilliant plan B. All is good!

It's taking shape!

Progression Succession


I'v got to boast that the new gallery is gleaming! I've spent the past few days painting, cleaning and promoting The Incident Room, hard work but what fun! Today we received works from exhibiting artist NME from the 'Artists Anonymous' collective - he's a very eager beaver! I got a bit too excited over one of his artworks and quite fancy it for myself! 

Tomorrow I shall be polishing the vast and gorgeous wooden floor, getting it all finished in time for the next arrival..Tracey Page will be installing her Venus Sculpture.

We've also had some great news today!! The private view will now take place on Thursday 18th August at 6pm. AND...The Incident Room will be officially declared open to the public by a very speciaL guest! Excited much?!

We are in the process of sorting flyers which are being designed by Hollis, one of the exhibiting artists who has kindly offered his skills!  More details of that when it arrives. 

Watch this Art-space!
