Exhibitions and events
Pollen Studios and Gallery invite you to celebrate 10 years of Pollenating. For this milestone anniversary exhibition ‘Still here but not there’ we are delighted to share our new space with our old friends.
We are looking forward to sharing news about where our past members have been Pollenating and sharing our new gallery space with them for an eclectic group show.
Since Jayne Cherry and Stuart Calvin started up the studio in 2011, several busy bees have graced our creative garden. Pollen has been a supportive element in the career of students, emerging, local and international artists. We have continued to be a small, artist led unfunded organisation with charitable status, with programmed monthly events. Our events archive includes performance art, exhibitions, workshops and music and we have forged connections with other organisations such as the University of Ulster and Bbeyond and now Flax Artist Studios.
Current members are Nichola Irvine, Grace Fairley, Aimee Magee, Jonah Gallagher and Aisling Magee
