Over its 184 years Hadley's has seen many secrets and scandals, the hotel is woven with tales of convicts, entrepreneurs, celebrities-past and countless other patrons of days gone by. The profound number of exciting and interesting untold stories are still being revealed to this day. ​The Gilded Encounters exhibition explores and highlights elements of Hadley's' rich history and illustrates these wonderful stories in the most unique way.

Sarah Stubbs uses porcelain and the ceramic process to capture atmospheric vignettes from the interior spaces of Hadley's. Fleeting, poetic and antique-looking. Stubbs uses the form of a cameo brooch to capture these distills sensations.
