GLOAM is a collectively-run exhibition and studio space located in Sheffield City Centre. It was set up by Mark Riddington on Mary Street in 2017. Since 2020, GLOAM has been run by four co-directors (Stu Burke, Thomas Lee Griffiths, Victoria Sharples & Rose Hedy Squires) at 160 Arundel Street; the former location of the DIY music venue, The Lughole.

Jonny Davey & Sam Francis Read: Bogland

A new king is proclaimed in times of widespread civil discontent. Yet on this Holiday, routine cultivations unearth what has lain undisturbed for thousands of years. Ancient, silent processes of change begin to reveal a deep rot. At once recognisable but unknowable, ‘Bogland’ is an exploration of landscape through half-stories and fragments of cultures both real and imagined.  This new body of work is a collaboration between artists Sam Francis Read & Jonny Davey, who have examined subjects of change. Taking inspiration from vernacular and amateur enthusiasms, themes of metamorphosis, civilisation shift and mythology have been interpreted through a collection of found objects, drawings and photography.

Preview: 5th May (6-9pm)
Open: 5th-14th May Saturday & Sunday (12-4pm) at 160 Arundel Street.



Working primarily with photography and sculpture, Davey’s practice investigates possible futures and explores themes relating to the post-industrial landscape, fokelore and our relationship to the natural world.

Read combrines images from different historical and cultural registers, occasionally alongside his own drawings. His artworks are usually driven by emotional rather than rational associations arising from research into niche visual cultures.
