The Brick Lane Gallery is situated at the top end of Brick Lane, close to Liverpool Street.
It houses an interesting eclectic mix of contemporary art by British and International artists that constantly changes.
The majority or the artists who exhibit here are emerging and mid-career artists. Here you will find a mixture of group and solo shows in the mediums of painting, sculpture, photography, performance, video and works on paper.
This tiny gallery is one of those places you easily fail to register if you are not that into art. Even if you are, you can easily browse the entire exhibition through the window. It is that tiny!
the exhibitions vary often and the selection seems to be pretty focused on street and contemporary art, fresh and up-coming artist.
So why not. I like the fact that galleries are so easy. Just pop in if you feel like it.
A tiny gallery situated in the heart of Brick lane, guaranteed to bring in passers by in this creative hub of London. The Brick Lane gallery exhibits an eclectic mix of contemporary art and street art by British and international artists. Focussing mainly on emerging artists.
It's size means that you can assess the work as you're walking past before you decide if you want to step inside for a closer look! I've never seen anything exhibited which really stood out for me but I always check out what's on if I'm in the area. Not a gallery to seek out but a usually worth a quick look.
I think this is a bit of a Scam. They recently spammed my email telling me how impressed they were with my art. Here is the full email
I stumbled across your artwork on the Glossom website and was really impressed with your pieces. I am the exhibitions organiser at The Brick Lane Gallery in London and would like to talk to you about showing your work with us. I think your work is strong enough to be included in a solo exhibition and that it would have great potential here in London. We offer a range of services such as press, marketing, installation and sales staff alongside our gallery hire option or indeed the opportunity to take part in our popular Art in Mind group shows and would be very interested in speaking to you further. If you have been thinking about presenting your work in the most dynamic capital of the art world, do get in touch with either myself or Daisy Darby, the gallery manager on info@thebricklanegallery… for further information. We look forward to our future collaborations with you and wish you much success in your career.
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
I do have a account on the site in question, Glossom.com, but do not have anything posted there. How could they possibly be at all impressed with a blank profile? " I think your work is strong enough to be included in a solo exhibition and that it would have great potential here in London. " Really? Which piece are you talking about? Not to say I don't have my art up in a lot of other places, and with a little research on their end they could have at least faked it a bit better, but the simple fact is they are selling a "pay to show" service and sending spam to thousands on a mail lists they obviously bought/got from Glossom.
They may be a "gallery" but they need to be more honest about their actual service, you pay us up front in total, and we give you a show, probably regardless of quality or content.
Other reviews on this scam:
When I visited this quite small space, the artist was present and informed me that the space is available to hire to present work at unbelieveably high rates. His work was a illustrationy, cartoony stuff. Nice. Probably different shows are diverse.
