Beth Williams 'Goddess Army' 29 August to 18 September 2022


Goddess Army
Beth Williams


Goddess Army is a collection of hand-molded clay figures inspired by the Venus of Willendorf, a 30,000 year old oolite carving. Discovered in Austria in 1908, she is thought to be one of the earliest pieces of evidence of humans living in Europe.

As part of a larger collection, these three figures are a reminder of the divine feminine and speak of ancient times when a fuller figure denoted status, not shame. They represent the power women hold, both individually and collectively.

Madi Strong '...promises, promises...' 8 - 28 August 2022




 …promises,promises…

Madi Strong


One of the places I lived as child had a promises box. It contained tiny scrolls of paper with verses of scripture, promises,  printed on them . I loved the pattern and texture they made standing regimented in their box. Sometimes I would be allowed to take the tweezers and extract a scroll . A good girl would then learn the promise by heart. I was not a good girl. In truth I loved the look and feel of it all the best it was a simple pleasure.

As life progresses we all have many experiences with promises, both good and bad. This small installation reflects on them starting with the beautiful fragile material that is porcelain,  which invites touch but is not in this case touchable.

The HANMAN is facing the climate crisis and a pandemic on top of all the normal trials and tribulations an alien encounters. This alien provides an honesty for the artist that would not be shared were it to come from the artist directly. HANMAN is open to share the shame of the most suppressed feelings, therefore depicting a true portrait of the artists life. HANMAN is a series of images in varying mediums that form almost a diary of alien life. The alien is a loose theme that does not appear in all works but the majority.

Katie Szysko


The strongest immigrant crab, fundament of the seabed found his way to Folkestone. After the long journey through the oceans of the world, he now sits at the altar, overlooking vast and foreign land. Coronated with the Pharaoh-like claw crown, he strives for the skies.


He cleaned the depths of the waters and clawed his way to the top. He’s seen the world at its gravest and its most profound. He earned his crown.


Hyrc is the altar of newly found peace. It represents the challenging journey; the struggles and obstacles one must overcome, and the strength gained. He’s homed on the pedestal above the wisdom of the written word in the little pocket as though still in his cave. For all to see his powers and put a light on in the tribute to his new life. Here, In the secret garden full of flowers, growth, and love.


Hyrc’s name is based on the sounds crabs make when feeding, fighting, and fornicating. Created by the Folkestone based artist duo Katie and Joseph.


Katie is a multi-disciplinary artist working in art, installation, film and creative writing.
