Meeting at Aspex Gallery


Aspex is Portsmouth's leading contemporary art gallery, having showcased the very best emerging artists for nearly 40 years. The gallery, located in a historic naval building, boasts three exhibition areas, an artist's studio, workshop space, a shop and cafe.

As a landmark address in the heart of Portsmouth's prestigious Gunwharf Quays, Aspex is a highly sought-after location to host social events, parties, networking meet-ups, launches, training days, meetings and conferences. Its versatile spaces offer a creative environment, natural light, integrated AV facilities and contemporary interiors with period features.
