Vivienne Ross makes ceramics that combine hand-made processes such as slabbing, press-moulding and coiling with a love of picture making, story telling and the figure. The pieces are decorated using coloured slips, stencils, brushwork, sprigging and sgraffitto.

Grimsby Institute associate lecturer Madeleine Vernau shows a new body of work in Gallery One this autumn.
“Madeleine works to capture transient moments, emotions, reflections of space and time, places for contemplation, both within the artwork and with the viewer. There’s something of the abstract impressionist about her painting, the ghost of each work’s inception held in the oil and brushwork. But these are quiet ghosts, and respectful, and open to the
company of fellow travellers. ”
