Corridor Gallery was created by Brighton-based makers and Artists to provide exhibition and retail space to support and nurture our City’s vibrant Art scene.
The Gallery space offers a monthly exhibition area with the sole aim to house great Art made in Brighton by a wealth of diverse Artists, Makers and Artisans.Corridor Gallery seeks to promote, showcase and sell a stunning array of original Fine and Contemporary Art produced by Brighton makers – there is no restriction on the style or medium of work Corridor Gallery exhibits so the space transforms each month to reflect the variety, vibrancy and flair found in our unique and fiercely independent City with a different exhibition in the front and retail area at the back of the space.
Corridor Gallery was launched in September 2015 by the Arts Co-Operative Diversis Artibus which ran and managed the space, eventually closing New Year's Eve 2016.
Working in a Co-Operative allowed the project to run as a transparent and fair profit enterprise; ensuring the Artists and Makers we support get fair payments for their work and receive free promotion, creative control, support and engagement with the Arts Co-Operative.
I joined in April 2016, helping with all facets of the gallery from Marketing, to day-to-day admin, curating and helping to put up the exhibitions, updating the website, writing blogs when we could and being responsible for social media.
This work was all voluntary and though we all tried our best to commit as much time as possible, real life dictated that this could never be a full time endeavour. Despite our best efforts, and just after announcing profit in our first year, the council sold the building the gallery was housed in. Spelling the end for a wonderful project.
In my time I had the privelige of working with incredible artists and makers including, Ian Miller, Aaron Howdle, Holly Rozier, Eve Shepherd, Justyna Neryng, Emma Clear, Lucy Kenward, Barnaby Simpson and so many many more.
