Messums West is a multi-purpose gallery and arts centre based at the Tithe Barn, Place Farm, Tisbury in Wiltshire. The venue opened in Autumn 2016 after a two-year restoration project to bring a thirteenth century monastic barn, the largest thatched building in the country, back to life as an exhibition and event space. The gallery’s one year anniversary was marked by the opening of the Long Gallery, a former dairy that lies perpendicular to the main barn, and a space to present two-dimensional works of art and objects of scale. The Mess Restaurant was opened in the same year and the exterior courtyard was remodelled in 2021 with extensive presentational space for sculpture.
Messums London is the capital focus to the exhibition programming. It is a destination for a rolling programme of solo and thematic shows reflecting the support and progress of our represented artists and other interests. Presentations throughout the year reflect core specialisms within the breadth of the arts represented, encompassing architecture, painting, drawing, ceramic, sculpture, film, photography, performance, textiles and more. The programme celebrates the exceptional and outstanding in all these genres and complements the events that take place across our other venues.
Opening in Spring 2025, the former Post Office building in London Road North will be refurbished and transformed into a 21st century hub for creativity and, in so doing, will maintain the heritage of this historically important building in the heart of the town. Working with Lowestoft Town Council and internationally renowned local sculptor Laurence Edwards the hub, known as Messums East, will provide exhibition space, a shop for ideas and a working studio for a long-term residency programme. It will offer a meeting place for minds steeped in a range of genre, together with exhibition spaces, a screening room and a café/ restaurant.
