The Three Counties Open 2020 virtual show is now open. You are welcome to visit the exhibition which is organised over 6 rooms and features work from 145 artists from Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire.
Keele has a vibrant arts programme, comprising art, music, poetry, performances and other cultural treats as well. We have our own art gallery, which is located in the Chancellor’s Building (currently closed due to COVID-19), and host a wide range of events throughout the year, including a full and varied music programme, public lectures and live poetry readings.
We are fortunate to have interesting collections, including the Stross Collection of art; a painting by LS Lowry; sculpture by Sir Jacob Epstein; the Raven Mason collection of Staffordshire ceramics; and our Special Collections and Archives located in the University library.
Our 2020-2021 artists in residence is performance poet Bohdan Piasecki who is working alongside colleagues at Keele Institute of Social Inclusion on Excavating Vulnerability.
