Sewell Centre Gallery

Sewell Centre Gallery

Situated in Clocktower Court, the Sewell Centre Gallery was re-opened in Spring 2014 by Old Radleian Sandy Nairne, former Director of the National Portrait Gallery.

This stunning, purpose built gallery is a well known exhibiting space in Oxfordshire and further afield. The gallery hosts six contemporary art shows a year and is open to Radley pupils, the College community and the general public.

Sewell Centre Gallery aims to support local, up and coming artists and bring nationally and internationally established artists to this area. Over the last few years the gallery has exhibited work by well-known artists such as Tracey Emin, Bridget Riley, Eduardo Paolozzi, Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon and Alan Davie. Most importantly the gallery is a valuable educational resource in keeping with the liberal aesthetic founding vision of Radley College. It plays a vital role in keeping the visual arts well and truly at the heart of College life.

Exhibitions Curator (ACJ)
I came to live at Radley in 1998 as an English teacher on indefinite maternity leave, when my husband, Mark, was appointed to teach Economics and Politics. 20 years, three children and a Labrador later, I am the Curator of the Sewell Centre Gallery and a member of the Academic Support Department. The Sewell Gallery has six professional exhibitions a year and makes high quality art accessible to the College community and the general public. I am in the happy position of being able to enjoy all my passions at work – Art, English Literature and working with young people.
