A member of Socket


Socket is a visual arts collective, formed in 2011. Based in the East Midlands, it is artist led and offers mutual support to its members. It provides a forum to further individual careers, promote independent practice and forge beneficial working relationships with other artists, curators and professionals within the visual art field. The diverse practice of the group is reflected through painting, printmaking, installation, three-dimensional work and digital media.

Members of the collective all studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at the University of Nottingham, graduating between 2007 and 2011 to establish independent practices before re-uniting to form Socket.


Exhibitions include Nottingham venues at the Carnival of Monsters, The Atrium, Lace Market Theatre, Bromley House Library, Lady Bay Arts Festival and Summer Exhibitions at the Djanogly Gallery. Also the Tarpey Gallery in Castle Donington, Sock Gallery in Loughborough, Deda in Derby, Carsington Reservoir Visitor Centre and The Curve, Leicester.
