Current Exhibition

Somewhere Between the Sea and the Table – James Drinkwater – 9 February - 21 April 2024

Celebrated for his vibrant, expressive colours, dynamic brushwork, and emotional depth, Vigo Gallery is delighted to present James Drinkwater's latest exhibition, Somewhere Between the Sea and the Table. Drinkwater draws on his childhood memories from eastern Australia, evoking idylic summers on the beach with just his friends, their horses, and the endless ocean rolling away in front of them. 

"I'm playing with the hazy memory of a beautiful long summer day by the sea, with horses frolicking and children playing. At the end of the day, you roll into bed full, happy, hot - this inspired Somewhere Between the Sea and the Table"

James Drinkwater, January 2024

Book tickets

Past exhibitions include: 

  • Invincible Summer, by Erin Lawlor. The exhibition depicts snapshots of windows of time in the studio and come to encapsulate that peculiar life-drive that goes hand in hand with the hardest of times.
  • In and Through, by Matthew Burrows. The exhibition included larger scale works by Matthew Burrows, the fruition of his In and Through series which he developed during the COVID pandemic.  

  • Vertical Planes, by artist Jordy Kerwick. Vertical Planes is a playful reaction to history - or alternate histories - of Wellington Arch and some of the characters immortalised by it.
  • Pain Relief, by artist Ibrahim El-Salahi. Work on display was created by the Sudanese Oxford-based artist between 2016-2018 from the comfort of an armchair when he refused to let physical restriction limit his ambition.
