‘Turner's Female Contemporaries’ presents a meticulously crafted and entirely tiled space, unveiling the faces of female artists who have long been overlooked by history, each of whom were creating their own work during J. M. W. Turner’s lifetime. Mercedes Workman's installation serves as a poignant reminder of the many talented women artists who have, for the most part, been denied the recognition they rightfully deserved. This exhibition shines a much-needed spotlight on their remarkable contributions to the art world and seeks to rectify the historical omission.

Maud Whatley’s work explores the politics of looking at things, the unexpected eroticism of placing different ideas in the context of one another and the ways in which the repetitive insistent touches of drawing can be sexy and weird.

Julia Ellen Lancaster's work delves deep into the relationship between humans and the landscape and encourages us to embrace the beauty of difference. 'Deadly Bloom' showcases Lancaster's innovative approach to ceramics, where she experiments with different clay bodies and complex glazing techniques, and employs her signature practice of digging clay from her local area in Thanet. A celebrated ceramic artist known for her distinctive exploration of primitive and otherworldly organisms, Lancaster repurposes previous ceramic experiments, adding layers of complexity to her creations. This intuitive and playful process is fundamentally linked to exploration and making.

Liminal Gallery is thrilled to announce the second exhibition in The Cupboard exhibition space. 'Night Walks' is a solo exhibition by Margate-based artist Thelma Speirs, which reveals a collection of evocative drawings and paintings, meticulously documented within the pages of a vintage French accounts book. Through Speirs' artistic lens, the urban and natural landscapes of London and Margate converge, giving way to a tapestry of ethereal nightscapes, enchanted woodlands, abandoned sports pitches, mythical creatures, and the enchanting winter skies, intertwining the realms of reality and imagination.

Though the smallest bricks-and-mortar contemporary gallery in the UK, Liminal Gallery challenges the status quo, presenting the diverse and resonant voices of today’s artists from across the UK and Ireland. While historically women and minorities have been wildly underrepresented in the art world, we stand as proof that change is happening.


Liminal Gallery’s permanent home at 34 Fort Hill, Margate, opened on 1st October 2022 after operating digitally and nomadically since its inception in April 2021. Our second exhibition space, The Cupboard, opened in March 2023 which provides local artists with a 3 month residency to showcase a solo exhibition in a playful and quirky space. Liminal Gallery Podcast was also launched in October 2022, used as a tool to widen access globally to their artists and their practice.
