Fifty Years at Waggon Yard: Celebrating the Past, Inspiring the Future

11 June to 23 July 2016

Fifty Years at Waggon Yard: Celebrating the Past, Inspiring the Future

The Ashgate Gallery was established in 1959. In 1966, it moved to its current location in Waggon Yard, Farnham. In 2016, the trust celebrates the 50th anniversary in its beautiful 17th century Grade II listed gallery.
The celebration culminates in an exhibition that will showcase the history of creativity, beauty and heritage in the gallery - one of the key not-for-profit organisations in the Farnham Craft Town.

The exhibition offers a showcase of past, present and future artists and makers who have worked with us. It will present new work by Adam Aaronson, Peter Beard, Peter Blake, Emma Dunbar, Michael Fairclough, Peter Hayes, Akiko Hirai, Richard Jack, Anita Klein, Heidi Koenig, Margaret O'Rorke, John Maltby, Gareth Mason, Fiona Millais, Jane Muir, Debbie Prosser, Duncan Ross, Jeni Ross, Guy Royle and Sarah Spackman.

The private view will take place on 10 June, 6-8pm. Ceramic artist Gareth Mason will be giving a mini talk about his work before the private view at 5.50pm. The Mayor of Waverley Borough Council will open the exhibition at 7pm. The music in the evening is by sisters Rachel and Helen Palmer, the Little Iris. They are also playing at Maltings on 29 July.

We are inviting members of the public to come forward and reminisce any stories about their memories of the gallery from 1966, to get in contact email gallery@newashgate.org.uk
