About

The Hodgson Loom Art Gallery is situated in the old Loomery, on the first floor, of Laxey Woollen Mills. This lovely space was provided by the current owner of the mill as an arena in which Manx artists, of all genres, could showcase their talents. The Isle of Man is blessed with a surprising number of incredibly talented artists, many of which show all over the world. We show the work of established artists alongside that of new artists, plus also give an opportunity for the many different craft and textile groups and collectives to showcase their prowess. Being a working woollen mill, it seems fitting that we show and promote many of the traditional arts and crafts being revitalised on the Island, something that co-founder of the Mill, John Ruskin, would have whole-heartedly approved and supported.

We host monthly exhibitions showing a diverse range of mediums, whether it be traditional paintings and drawings; contemporary abstracts; textile art; sculpture; ceramics; photography, or any thing else for that matter!

As this space was the old Loomery, there still exists in the back of the room, the incredibly rare 1918 Hodgson Loom still in existence. To see what is currently on display, please visit our facebook page.
