The Winter Social - 20th Anniversary Celebration


Join us on Friday 25 November from 7pm - 9pm for our Winter Social and 20th Anniversary celebration. See brand new collections headlined by artist Ade Adesina, be the first to admire our artist-commissioned installation by ceramicist Megan Randall, and enjoy special anniversary treats throughout the evening!

Ade Adesina

Royal Scottish Academician and member of the Royal Glasgow Institute, Nigerian-born and Aberdeen-based Ade Adesina is a renowned contemporary printmaker.

This winter he presents a thought-provoking and timely collection: a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world, and the impact human footprints leave on our planet.

Ade has had successful exhibitions at The Biscuit Factory in previous years, but this showcase will be the largest collection of his work we have exhibited to date.

Megan Randall

We unveil a new, permanent installation to commemorate our 20th anniversary, created by local sculptor Megan Randall.

Over recent months Megan has created a work that represents our ethos; as champions of hand made and original and to celebrate our commitment to nurturing and developing artistic opportunities, appreciation and engagement in the North East.

Alongside visitors to the gallery, Megan has moulded and inscribed organic clay shapes in their hundreds, influenced by the history of the building with references to our biscuit heritage as well as more modern mark making combine to form a large scale installation.


Enjoy complimentary drinks and a festive atmosphere as we celebrate our 20 years!
Local string quartet Arco will perform live throughout the evening, while the gallery will be dressed for the coming season.
Fresh collections from artists old and new will be on display ready for you to choose pieces for your own home or source original gifts to give on Christmas morning.
