12th Sep 2015 - 8th Nov 2015
An exhibition of sculpture, ceramics and paintings in the new "Upstairs @ Upfront" gallery space. A very special exhibition for us as we were opening Upfront Gallery at the same time as Geoff and Chris Cox were beginning "Potfest". Mutual creative support has gone on over the years and we are delighted that Chris and Geoff will be giving everyone the opportunity to see a retrospective of their work. Paintings by Geoff's brother, Graham, make the exhibition a unique "Cox Experience".
Geoff and Christine Cox the organisers of the Penrith Potfests are joined by Geoff’s brother, a painter based in North Wales.

This year will be Chris and Geoff’s 30th year as full time ceramic artists and they wanted to mark it with an exhibition of the work they’ve been developing over the last three decades.

Graham Cox gave up a career as an art college lecturer 10 years ago to become a full time painter.

This exhibition will be the first time that the Cox family have had the opportunity to do something together - a significant occasion and celebration.
