Forthcoming Events

Best Served Stone Cold

An exhibition by Lucy Foakes and Josh Rose


Exhibition launch party: Friday 6th February 2015, 6-8pm
Free entry

Best Served Stone Cold presents two early-career artists who both explore different aspects of contemporary consumer culture through the shared visual language of ‘pop’ imagery. United by their street-wise graphics and tongue-in-cheek appropriated slogans, Lucy Foakes and Josh Rose offer a wry alternative to still life painting and decorative ceramics.
Join us for a glass of wine as Best Served Stone Cold launches at the O3 Gallery in Oxford Castle Quarter on Friday 6th February from 6-8pm. The exhibition runs until Sunday 15th March 2015. Entry is free and all artwork will be available to purchase.
