Steve Gubbins is joining with three other very talented artists to set up a “pop up” gallery in the heart of Horsham Town Centre. Steve will be showing his renowned abstract art and ceramic pieces for this short, limited engagement.
This is a unique opportunity to meet four highly innovative artists who specialise in photography, sculpture, and painting. You will have the chance to meet them, discuss their work and possibly see a demonstration or two on how they come up with their ideas for their works of art.
This “pop up” gallery is only for a short time so mark your calendars!
Opening times are:
Wednesday, 6 March to Saturday, 9 March
10 AM to 5 PM
Sunday, 10 March
11 AM to 3 PM
The gallery will be inside Swan Walk at Horsham Town Centre—opposite the Swan Sculpture.
Don’t miss your chance to get up close and personal with the art AND the artists!
Contact Steve if you have any questions and we look forward to seeing you there.

In the heart of the South Downs, near Chichester, lies Kingley Vale Trail. This trail leads to the finest yew tree forest in Western Europe. This forest is home to some of the oldest living things in Britain—a collection of ancient yews.
When you look at a tree, perhaps you admire the height of the tree, the breadth of its branches as it reaches to the skies. But have you ever thought of admiring its roots? Steve Gubbins did and from the roots of these ancient trees, created brilliant pieces of art.
Steve’s abstract collection, which was part of his Forest of Rainbows collection, shows the beauty and depth that a root can hold. The texture and colour comes from the base of these majestic trees and allows you to see the inner beauty of the tree.
Steve has fallen in love with the Kingley Vale Trail and has visited on several occasions—always finding something new to capture from multiple vantage points. Steve always looks at the world in a different way and that is what allows him to create such lasting art.
For more information, contact Steve.
Since working with clay and creating beautiful works of art with hishands, Steve Gubbins has created dozens of unique pieces. Each one has its own story and each piece is one of kind. But does an artist have a favourite?
Steve does. His favourite piece is entitled, “In God’s Hands,” and it was a custom design that Steve created for a very special friend. This friend had gone through a personal heartbreak that no family should have to face. A young woman, left abandoned by the tragic death of her husband and was facing raising their young child alone.
Steve was so moved by the sadness that struck his friend’s life and it was that emotion that pushed him to create “In God’s Hands.”
The sphere in the middle represents the poor child that will grow up not knowing her father. Surrounding her are the loving arms of her mother that will do everything she can to protect her daughter. Finally, embracing them both, are the wings of God as his spirit shines around them.
Steve’s art is currently on display at Horsham Museum and Art Gallery where you can see his work up close and learn more about his artistic expressions.
If you would like more information or would like to make one Steve’s ceramic pieces a part of your home or office, please contact Steve.
