A new contemporary art space, in the heart of Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, run by two locally revered artists - Dale Wells and Darren Neave (RCA), who met whilst studying at the University of Lincoln.
The gallery space has been kindly supported by Skippko, an arts organisation based in Holbeck, South Leeds, formed in 1988 by two female artists. For more than 30 years they have been committed to developing creative projects with communities across the North. They develop bespoke programmes of work in cooperation with individual communities often collaborating with partners like Leeds Libraries & Information Services and Leeds Museums & Galleries. Skippko secure investment for their programmes of work through major funders such as Heritage Lottery Fund, Awards for All, The Big Lottery & Esmee Fairbairn and support funders, Wade’s Charity, Trusthouse Charitable Foundation, Charles Brotherton Trust and Greggs Foundation.
In addition, we would like to acknowledge the generous contribution from Grimsby Creates, whose funding award has made this possible. Through their Artist's Development Fund, we have been given the opportunity to research, develop and launch turntable gallery as a flagship space, in the beating heart of Great Grimsby.

Turntable Gallery lurches insidiously, towards the build up to the festive season. Christmas comes earlier than ever to Grimsby, with the launch of their Winter Wonderlandfill window!
Feast upon the ribbon wrapped buffet of enchantment and delight, with lashings of forced jollification, rampant consumerism and mind-blowing misery. All, gaudily disguised beneath heaps of bio-undegradable glitter, sparkly snowflakes, fake snow and harrowed tinsel.
Gifted, bagged and bottled, you’re in luck! Carefully delivered with a leer, dressed up as festive cheer.
It’s a cracker! Yule be sorry if you miss it!

Through his studio and teaching practices Ringe explores the possibilities of phenomenological and somatic experience. He is nearing completion of a practice led PhD Uber the working title Ma- the space in-between, drawing on both Eastern and process philosophies to shape his performative drawing and video practice. His work is influenced by journeying into the unknown: Freediving, navigating fog and Japanese post-Burton avant garde dance; creating hard to pigeon hole works which bilaterally explores the difficulty of communicating internal experience to an audience.
We Need Your Support
Dale Wells and Darren Neave from the Turntable Gallery, Grimsby need your help and support in making this happen. Please sign the petition to send a clear signal of your support. We have tracked Grim down! We can assess how badly damaged he is and give him a public space so the townsfolk can see the amount of work that needs to be done so he can once again become the emblematic figurehead and a well-loved work of art. This is a great symbol of the town and needs to be re-kindled and nurtured!
