Showcasing Contemporary Paintings, Drawings, Ceramics and Sculpture, the Gallery presents themed exhibitions alongside an evolving collection of artworks drawn upon from emerging and established Artists, both from the UK and Internationally. Curated shows are often material led and have a focus on the more formal elements of an Artists practice.
Replacing the traditional ‘white box’ gallery model with an architectural-domestic setting, the gallery is inspired by dynamic spaces such as Kettle’s Yard and Pallant House.The building itself is live/work status, and formally a Victorian bakery, restored with reclaimed interior elements and blessed with lots of natural daylight.
155A Gallery is owned and curated by Karen Akhtar, a former editorial and commercial photographic stylist. From time to time, 155A Gallery hosts curatorial projects that are in keeping with its quieter nature.
