This August Bank Holiday weekend make your way down to Old Park Road in St Lawrence and you’ll find more than you bargained for.

Each year The Bunker Gallery aims to provide thought-provoking projects that excite, inspire and question. This year is no exception and for the first time two venues will be open across the site, The Bunker Gallery and artist Lisa Traxler’s working studio.

The Bunker Gallery is housed in a decommissioned WW2 radar bunker. Feel the history captured in its concrete walls and view how it becomes a vibrant setting for contemporary art.

Home of award winning artist Lisa Traxler and her architecture husband Lincoln Miles, the gallery hosts an interesting and diverse exhibition each year in this experimental project space.

This year’s selected artist is Jonathan Parsons, a multi-media artist known for the diversity of his practice, which includes installation, sculpture, found objects, fabrication and land art. The core of his artistic activity, though, is drawing and painting in his London studio.

Alongside the gallery, the studio of Lisa Traxler will be open. A private space during the year, this is a special opening of the artists working studio where you can meet the artist and chat with her about her practice.

On display will be maquette, sketchbooks, new paintings and sculpture in the unique setting of her Nissen hut studio.

Walk down through the grounds past the artist’s sculptures and enjoy the breathtaking landscape and sea views.

The Bunker Gallery Summer Exhibition takes place over the August Bank Holiday of Friday 26th to Monday 29th August 2022.

Open daily between 11am – 4pm. Free entrance and parking is available in St Lawrence Village.

The Bunker Gallery can be found on Old Park Road, St Lawrence, Isle of Wight PO38 1XR.
