After 7 years and over 17 shows, 2018 is a time to reflect!  Abi Concannon is taking a break from putting together a Spring show this year to think about how Shipyard Studios can move forward.  The renowned Christmas Cornucopia will undoubtedly return at the end of the year - watch this space!


Shipyard Studios is an established pop-up gallery on the redeveloped Cooks Shipyard site in Wivenhoe on the River Colne in Essex.

Abi Concannon has housed regular successful pop-up exhibitions since 2011 at Keel House, one of the live/work units in the development. Shipyard Studios is proud to be a significant part of the artistic hub that has naturally emerged in the Wivenhoe community and the semi-domestic setting provides a unique opportunity to view work in an informal environment.

The Christmas Cornucopia are hugely successful annual exhibitions and a highlight of the Wivenhoe Calender.  This year will be our 7th show and it promises to be the best yet.  We seek the highest quality work from artists and makers, both locally and across the UK and ensure a broad price range to meet all needs.

InsideOut is our Spring exhibition which usually coincides with Wivenhoe Open Gardens so visitors can also enjoy a weekend of garden visits.  Studio gardens are also open during the exhibition.
