A new art curator appears…!

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

Welcome to Art Box Chester! I am Stephanie Downes and I am thrilled to announce that I am the new gallery manager and curator at Art Box Chester.

As someone deeply passionate about the arts, completing an MA in Art History at the Open University where I focused on video game architecture, I’ve dedicated myself to fostering meaningful connections between artists and audiences, particularly up and coming artists in the Chester area where I grew up. Whether you’re a seasoned art aficionado or a curious newcomer, I hope to give everyone who lives in or visits Chester a place to immerse themselves in art.

Warm regards,
Stephanie Downes
Gallery Manager and Curator, Art Box Chester Gallery
