We’ve done the hard work for you and chosen our favourite exhibtions this month from around Nottingham…


Backlit – Alistair frost

This exhibition is a collaboration of work done by the artist on his own and work made in co-operation with Backlit’s studio artists. The exhibition consists of three rooms, two of which show paintings by Frost and the third which contains ‘The amazing fruit machine’. Intrigued? Visit the gallery between 2-3 on a Saturday to see the fruit machine in action and you can find out what its all about. I wont ruin the surprise. The gallery is a 10/15 minute walk from Nottingham Trent but well worth the trip. The exhibition is on show until the 9th of December.

Open Thursday to Sunday 12-5.

Alfred House, Ashley Street, Nottingham, NG31LG



Surface Gallery – Pulse

 This exhibition consists of 8 recent university graduates from the east midlands. It includes sculpture, instillation, drawing, painting along with digital printing and sound art. The mix of mediums makes this one a really interesting show to visit, also meaning there is something everyone will enjoy. The exhibition is only on show until the 19th of November so see it whilst its still there. Surface Gallery is really easy to find and only a few minutes from the Motorpoint arena at the bottom of Hockley.

Open Tuesday to Friday 12-6 & Saturdays 11-5

16 Southwell Road, Nottingham, NG1 1DL



Syson Gallery – S Mark Gubb, Revelations

This exhibition is by  S Mark Gubb, an artist based in Wales. The show at Syson Gallery is bright, witty and we loved it. His work includes sculpture, video, sound and instillation. Syson Gallery is situated opposite Nottingham Contemporary, by the Weekday Cross, behind the Red Door gift shop.

Open Wednesday to Saturday 12-5
