Art in Manufacturing: We Are Gathered Here Together, Horace Lindezey + The Making Rooms

Horace Lindezey has been a practising artist and maker at Venture Arts in Manchester for over 30 years, working predominantly in ceramics and textiles. After exhibiting in the 2023 National Festival of Making in the group show, YESS LAD, Lindezey, was commissioned to return this year with his first solo exhibition.


We Are Gathered Here Together is an immersive installation rooted in the ceremonies that surround our lives. Enter Lindezey’s world of music, witty expressions, and his unique perspective of the rituals that connect people, time and place.

Lindezey is an established studio artist with Venture Arts, a collaborator in this residency.
