In honor of Portsmouth’s 400th year anniversary, 3S Artspace held an open call for submissions by artists living or working in Portsmouth today. There was no shortage of talent and creativity. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the extraordinary artists selected to exhibit in the Lobby Gallery in 2023. All exhibited works are available for purchase, with revenue supporting both the artists and 3S.

Artist Statement
Tom Canney's work straddles an aesthetic balance between automatism, field painting and figurative drawing, creating layers in which narrative structures emerge - both purposed by the artist and/or read into by the viewer. Historically, themes of queer identity, traditional social mores and marginalized youth have been explored and deconstructed. This series is a response recent topical social issues facing the queer community at large.
