We opened on the 10th of December 2016, the gallery and project space aims to be approachable and showcase contemporary artists from the West Midlands alongside work by some of the leading artists from Britain today.
The gallery is co-located with Holyhead Studios only a short walk away from the main city centre. We are located in a Victorian Quaker's meeting hall, in the mid-1970s the basement was used as a music workshop that provided a crucially important space for the development of early 2-Tone music. The building has had a number of different activities since ceasing being a meeting hall, it has been a youth club, boxing club, swing dance club and policemans social club. The room that this gallery & project space occupies was originally designated as a classroom for women.
