7 May - 7 June
A new artwork by Pete Codling will be created in Gosport Gallery this May.
The Artist lives and works in his studio gallery called ‘Atelier’ in Southsea, Portsmouth. He will be in residence to create a temporary freehand, giant charcoal drawing, a unique artwork that explores local influences and history in the broader themes of the human condition. His last major artwork Dust to Dust took six months to draw using classical and contemporary themes with personal inspiration from his international travels.
Visitors can stop by to meet the artist from the 7 to 11 May and watch the artwork grow.
The artwork can be viewed in the Gallery until 22 June.

About the Gallery
Gosport Gallery hosts a wide variety of exhibitions and events from shows of the finest local artists to exhibitions drawing on the rich museum collections held by Gosport and Hampshire. It is fast becoming a regional venue for major exhibitions on loan from our national museums and collections. Events range from theatrical productions to fun-days, talks to art workshops.
The Gallery is a bright welcoming exhibition space located in the historic former assembly hall of Gosport Grammar School. Whilst maintaining several of the original features such as the floor and the balcony, it has been renovated to the highest standards to allow secure display of items of national importance.
You can find Gosport Gallery a short walk from the main Discovery Centre building, behind the Local Studies Centre.
